Example text

6,43 Although the HAAT model provides a framework for addressing the interface between the technology, activity, user, and environment, and how these affect the AT system, it does not yet provide a deep understanding of how the interaction between the user, technology, and the environment affects technology use. 25 The MPT model presents three layers of factors that impact AT use. In the first level are the environment, characteristics of the person, and features of the device. The next level consists of expectations and definitions of rehabilitation success by and for that individual, the person’s view of his or her present and future quality of life, and his or her experience of disability.

Consequently, outcome measures focus on the person’s level of independence and function believed to underpin independence. Working with Steven Using the Rehabilitation Model In light of the previous description of the rehabilitation model, we now return to consider the implications of using this model in addressing Steven’s technology needs. Some questions which arise include the following: How would a service provider using a rehabilitation framework view him? How would a service provider define Steven’s needs?

Consequently, an inexperienced user would be dependent on the AT practitioner to provide sufficient knowledge to contribute to decisions. Similarly an inexperienced practitioner may deflect responsibility for identifying suitable options onto the user (regardless of their expertise). Third, experience and problem-solving capacity determine what and how issues are addressed. Without experience, appreciating the complex matrix of factors affecting performance is difficult, if not impossible. Textbook solutions do not always resolve or apply to idiosyncratic real-world issues.
