Electronic Aids to Daily Living (EADL) offer Patients  enhanced independence, quality of life, and safety. Unfortunately these systems can be expensive, involve a complex installation, and are not covered by insurance. For these reasons it can be difficult to trial and recommend the most appropriate EADL systems for Patients. This Instructional course will provide a detailed overview of traditional EADL systems and consumer electronic solutions. Additionally, participants will be given the opportunity for hands on setup and usage of various EADL systems related to specific case studies.
