Third, in defining health, the ICF requires that we move beyond attending to the impaired body structures and function to enabling people to engage in activities and participate fully in society. Fourth, and most importantly, disability is not viewed as an attribute of the person, but rather as a consequence of the environment.

By identifying the elements in the AT system, the HAAT model holds the AT practitioner responsible for achieving the user’s goals and establishing a good fit between the activities, user, technology, and environment. The AT practitioner is guided to examine the user’s life roles and tasks involved in his/her daily work, leisure, and self-care activities. Each user is seen as a unique person with biological structures that enable him to sense, process, and act, as well as having skills, abilities, and experiences that he brings to the system.

This underscores the importance of clearly and thoroughly defining the needs of the users up front. In addition, user satisfaction with the technology and process are evaluated but generally only at the time the solution is put in place. 21 Theories help to translate the intuitive experience of practitioners into testable, systematically organized concepts and variables. Theories describe and explain phenomena and how they are related. 25 AT practice requires conceptual models to describe the broad range of elements involved in the Chapter 2 Review of the Development of Assistive Technology Models 33 selection and integration of AT and how they interact to ensure that the technology solution continues to work well in the context.
