29th Annual RESNA Conference Proceedings

Assistive Technology Device Outcome Data Collection Tools

Frank DeRuyter, PhD, Daniel Saldana, BS, & Jeffrey W. Jutai, PhD


For the relatively few ATD outcomes related tools available to clinicians, most are completed using paper/pencil which requires significant effort in entering data into a central database for analysis. Direct entry web-based interfaces and/or portable devices (PDA's, bar-coders, digital pens, tablets, etc) can efficiently facilitate data collection by porting data (synchronously or asynchronously) into a main data collection/repository site. Presentation will discuss via video clips various outcome data collection tools developed and beta-tested by the Consortium for Assistive Technology Outcomes Research (CATOR).
