Abstract

One aspect of self-care and independence for many older individuals concerns their ability to control their home environment when their mobility is impaired. Although rehabilitation devices have often been custom designed, the availability of these devices has been limited because of high manufacturing costs and a lack of production and marketing channels. It should therefore be recognized that many devices already available to consumers offer a wide range of environmental control without the problems associated with custom design.
