Advances in mobile devices provide opportunities for developing innovative health services that take advantage of the novel characteristics of mobile technologies, including supporting self-management, health monitoring, self-directed learning and interactive patient-clinician communications. Mobile health (mHealth) is a potential tool to improve the quality of life for people with disability due to the high penetration of mobile devices usage in the disability population. This session is a collaboration between RERC on Information and Communication Technology Access and the Human Engineering Research Lab, highlighting research and development of mobile health applications that provide self-management, self-directed goal achievement and interactive education/learning for people with disabilities.
