Catherine Bridge, University of New South Wales

This project seeks to address the implications of new and emerging Assistive Technologies (AT) for older people and those living with a disability. It focuses on the social and economic benefits and opportunities of AT potentially supporting independent living using cost analysis and economic modelling with a survey and case studies in South Australia, Tasmania and New South Wales.
