CATCH outcomes from the AAATE conference

CATCH Hosted the AAATE Congress earlier this year which saw almost 400 delegates from a range of academic disciplines, health and social care professionals, policy makers, and industry come together to discuss challenges from around the world where Assistive Technology could deliver benefits to the increasing population of people with disabilities and the ageing society.

The breadth of capacity that CATCH has to engage in Research and Development was well illustrated by the articles published in the Conference proceedings

There were 19 article from CATCH researchers spanning users who have communication, cognitive, static, degenerative, mental health, multiple, and profound impairments involving technologies and their use that spans EMG switches, touch screens, the internet, wearables, apps and robots.
The reported work examined methods, technology innovation and evaluation and service implementation.

There was some focus on addressing support for older people through the use of assistive technology for example for those with dementia or who would benefit from the use of robots to support independent living.
