What is it about?
Recent advances in technology and rehabilitation have led to the development of new tools to asisit people with disabilities and improve their functioning and autonomy in their daily life. However, more than 50% of users abandon their new products because they are not sufficiently usable or do not consider the real needs of users. For these reasons, this study describes the development of a questionnaire for assessing the usability of assistive technologies, accessible to people with neurological diseases.
