Assistive devices: utilization by children.


The use of assistive devices by children has become widespread and has been supported financially by insurance carriers and governments. However, there has been little evaluation of the utilization of these devices. To determine utilization of, satisfaction with, and perceived value of the aid, an independent evaluator contacted 502 families who had used a provincial government funding program to obtain an assistive device. High levels of use, satisfaction, and perceived value were reported, indicating that a decentralized funding program can provide aids effectively.
