SMART technology can be used as a solution to overcome some of the challenges of living with a disability or can promote independence with activities of daily living.
We offer recommendations regarding the purchase of SMART technology and can assist with the set-up of handheld devices, mainstream technology or laptops that can be used as daily living aids. All equipment must be accessible and, ultimately, useful or have the ability to help overcome a problem or be an aid to independence.
Much of the mainstream technology within the marketplace can be used to assist with memory and organisation skills, control the environment, provide options and offer choices and open up a wider social network.
All equipment recommendations are made following a review of the unique needs of the individual, their home or work environment and their ultimate goal in using the technology. We can advise on what SMART technology is appropriate, help individuals learn how to use the new technology and practically apply it into their day-to-day routine. In some cases, the use of SMART technology and specialist apps may help to reduce long-term care needs. SMART technology should, ultimately, help to open up a wider view.
