Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

Two state-of-the-art technological approaches (store-and-forward videos and telepresence robots) were compared for their ability to guide OTs in selecting the appropriate technology for remote home-safety evaluations. When a caregiver is capable of adhering to a strict remote evaluation protocol, a camera can be the simpler application, but a telepresence robot’s video conferencing capabilities allow for real-time interactions and the ability to obtain information from the residents about features of the home.
