Abstract:


Presents results from year 3 of a 5-year project studying the adaptive equipment needs of people with disabilities. In year 3 of the project, focus group research methods were used to compile information about the technology and product needs of older people with different types of functional limitations.

This report presents findings in the following areas: group demographics; consumer needs that supersede product concerns; older consumers' orientation to technology; attitudes toward work and the work place; important product features cited by focus groups; product selection criteria; consumer observations about specific types of mobility devices and communication tools; information channels for learning about consumer products; general recommendations for product improvement; creative solutions to consumer needs; and focus group wish-list items.
