Abstract

Self-rehabilitation technology has been developed to reduce healthcare costs and provide a convenient, reliable method for patients to recover from a physical injury. Sponsored by the Danish Association of the Blind, the following report summarizes a project exploring self-rehabilitation technologies that can accommodate blind or visually impaired patients. Potential strategies to increase awareness of such devices throughout municipalities in Denmark were evaluated as well. The data collected in this project were used to recommend that the Danish Association of the Blind advocates for further development of several rehabilitation technologies and the education of healthcare professionals about these technologies throughout Danish municipalities.
