Empfehlungen aus dem Weltbericht Behinderung und die Konsequenzen aus der WHA-Resolution 66.9 und dem neuen WHO Aktionsplan “Gesundheit für Menschen mit Behinderungen"

Zusammenfassung: The World Report on Disability analyses, among others, the supply of persons in need with assistive devices. In its recommendations the report claims for an increased “access to assistive technology that is appropriate, sustainable, affordable, and accessible” and defines strategies to achieve this goal.

Gutenbrunner, Christoph


Globale Kooperation assistiver Technologien (GATE)

Zusammenfassung: The availability of assistive technology (AT) for many people is to remain healthy, independent and productive. It is also a pre-condition for inclusion and equal participation of people with disabilities in the society. The need for AT is on the increase due to a growing prevalence of disability, the rise in non-communicable and musculoskeletal conditions and increase in injuries for example from road traffic crashes, violence and falls and above all, the emerging ageing population.

Versorgung mit Hilfsmitteln – ein Funktionsansatz

Zusammenfassung: Assistive technology aims to improve human functioning. With the publication and adoption of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) in 2001 a new way of describing and classifying human functioning has been introduced. This was a step forward in enabling global quantification and description of disability, as well as activity and participation limitations. This presentation will outline how functioning can be described using the ICF and some of the challenges of utilising the ICF in recording functioning and changes of functioning.

Kohler, Friedbert


Strategien zur Verbesserung der Versorgung mit Hilfsmitteln

Zusammenfassung: As stated in the World Report on Disability produced, by WHO and the World Bank, from 2011 there is 1 billion persons with disabilities in the world which is 15% of the total population. By 2050 it’s stipulated that there will be 1.4 billion. There is 700 Million older people in the World now and there will be 2 billion by the year 2050. This means that the need for AT is increasing fast. In developing countries, only 5-15% of people in need, can access assistive devices. Even poor people should have the right to assistive devices. There are so many layers between products and users today. Manufacturer, Distributor, Retailer, Doctor, Audiologist, Technician - User
