Abstract

Ambient assisted living technology, known as ambient welfare technology in Denmark, promises to play a prominent role in the future of home health care. This project, sponsored by the Danish Association of the Blind, investigated the social and political context of ambient welfare technology and the primary concerns of stakeholder’s in its development. The results from our research were used to develop criteria for evaluating assistive devices and make recommendations for future development of these technologies.
