Let’s Talk Tech: Wireless Technology Survey for Providers!

Research Subject: Understanding therapy and assistive technology providers’ experience delivering interventions that incorporate clients’ use of mainstream technology.  

Brief Description: We are with the University of Pittsburgh’s Department of Rehabilitation Science and Technology. The IRB approved research “Voice of the Providers on Wireless Technology Survey,” aims to understand therapy and assistive technology providers’ experience delivering interventions that incorporate clients’ use of mainstream technology (MT), like smartphones, smart home tech, and wearables into interventions. If you qualify for this research, you’ll complete a 15–30-minute online survey covering demographic information, experience with MT interventions, barriers, facilitators, and education needs.
