The MOvIT+™ program facilitates the follow-up of assistive technology users and their caregivers. MOvIT+™ reduces negative consequences associated with an inadequate use of various types of assistive technologies.
Studies reveal that more than half of individuals receiving assistive technologies are likely to misuse or discontinue its use within a year. The main reasons for discontinuing the use of assistive technologies are the lack of confidence and technical problems associated with their use. Assistive technology users or their caregivers may initiate contact with a clinician, but they do not necessarily know what is important to report, when to report it, who they should be contacting, nor what information to look for.
MOvIT+™ allows assistive technology users and their caregivers to identify the potential problems associated with assistive technology use and informs them about best practices. The program ensures that all information and resources are regrouped in one place. The online resources and remote coaching offered as part of the MOvIT+™ program enable safe and satisfactory use of assistive technologies.
