Furthermore, goals set for maximum function may not accurately reflect the strength and movement Chapter 2 Review of the Development of Assistive Technology Models 27 requirements for an individual and may overestimate or underestimate the capacities they require to re-engage in life. Although we have charts that detail the average grip strength for people of varying ages, little is known about the minimum strength requirements of everyday tasks. The strength requirements of an office worker would differ greatly from the strength requirements of a fitter and turner.

UNDERSTANDING TECHNOLOGY USE AT users are as different and diverse as anyone else in the community. Even when using similar technologies, people differ in the way in which they use them and the purposes for which they use them. Some people have a great inclination for using technology and others have no interest in it. Furthermore, people may avoid using technologies in one context while embracing them in Chapter 2 Review of the Development of Assistive Technology Models 41 another. 6,43 Although the HAAT model provides a framework for addressing the interface between the technology, activity, user, and environment, and how these affect the AT system, it does not yet provide a deep understanding of how the interaction between the user, technology, and the environment affects technology use.

25 The detailed description of AT assists practitioners in selecting and applying technologies and understanding the demands these devices place on the user, to better prepare the user to apply technology effectively. With a deep understanding of the power and potential of technology, users and service providers are better prepared to anticipate future needs. The user is empowered to effectively apply the technology in all aspects of his life. Although the HAAT model specifically identifies AT as an explicit component in the model,24 it would work equally well for any strategy designed to enable the user, such as alternative strategies or personal assistance.
