This project aims to help London boroughs make effective use of Assistive Technology (AT) to enable residents to live more independently. Our work in this area is focused on supporting public sector staff to make evidence-based decisions about the role and effectiveness of different ATs, and to conduct their own AT trials in a way that furthers the collective knowledge of the whole LOTI community.
Our work on this project began by creating a guide to designing and evaluating AT projects. LOTI is now exploring the potential of Assistive Technologies to support boroughs’ Covid response by supporting isolated individuals to live more independently.
In early 2021, we will publish an AT case study library.
