Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

The collaboration between OT and engineering can bring complementary perspectives together to create assistive technology that makes significant global impacts. In Colombia, two assessments were administered to identify factors that influence participation in home and community environments for individuals with ambulatory challenges. This research project provides a foundation for OT in Colombia to work with local engineering programs to identify home and community barriers.
