A mixed-method pilot study was conducted to identify the barriers that influence the use of AT among Hispanic men and women. Noted trends in gender differences revealed that women reported more barriers to AT use for instrumental activities of daily living and men for self-care. Women mostly reported barriers related to technology cost, appearance, and social attitude. These findings confirmed the need to conduct a larger study with sufficient power to this study's results.
