Assistive technology and telecare (ATT) are relatively new ways of delivering care and support to people with social care needs.
Andrew Bateman's insight:
Here's the protocol that is now running and recruiting in Cambridgeshire - OZC Research Occupational Therapist Rachel Winson at the sharp end of delivery of this study, and has made a great start to this new role.
"Of all the forms of mobile health technology used to promote adherence of patients to chronic disease management (mAdherence), text messaging continues to exceed on others in terms of its availability, frequency of use, and effectiveness. This is one of several conclusions reached by authors of a recent study in the Journal of Medical Internet Research."

Read-Right is a free therapy developed by UCL (University College London) and funded by The Stroke Association to aid the rehabilitation of people with Hemianopic Alexia (HA). People who have HA have problems with their reading after having had a stroke or head injury. Developed jointly by UCL Multimedia and the UCL Institute of Neurology, Read-Right contains rehabilitation materials ('scrolling' or moving texts) that have been shown to improve text reading speeds in people with HA in three published research studies. The Read-Right research project is the brainchild of Dr Alex Leff, a Consultant Neurologist at the UCL Institute of Neurology.
There will come a day when wearable technology will shift from being just a health companion to significantly reducing our reliance on doctors. Human-provided health care will probably remain essential for a long time to come, but the more accurate wearable devices become at detecting problems, the less we'll need to rely on doctor appointments, wait times, and expensive medical bills.For your day-to-day health and fitness, such as tracking steps, monitoring heart rate and checking how many hours of sleep you got, wearables are making big strides, and for many of them that's where it all stops. But what about devices detecting more serious health problems - why aren't there more of them? Are things changing? And how much weight should we place on health-tracking tech to tell us how well our bodies are working?

Andrew Bateman's insight:
My good friend Giles Yeates emailed me recently to say he discovered our chapters written for this book have been published. This volume includes a chapter written by me that started life as lecture at a conference “Adaptive Aids in Neuropsychological Rehabilitation” organized by GIRN 7/8 october in Padova in 2011. It was a lovely trip. Padua is a wonderful City to go and visit. It's rewarding to have this lasting memento of that trip. I'm especiallly grateful to Prof Anna Cantagallo for translating and publishing this, in addition to the wonderful hospitality shown toward me on that trip. The english language version of this chapter can be found http://www.slideshare.net/AndrewBateman/lessons-from-neuropage-chapter but if you cite this please use the formal citation as per Cantagallo's book, depending on your referencing format:
