Material type: materialTypeLabelArticleContent type: Media type: Carrier type: ISSN: 02729490.Subject(s): Teràpia Ocupacional | Trastorns cognitius | AVD | Everyday technologyOnline resources: Accés restringit usuaris EUIT In: American Journal of Occupational Therapy 2017 SET-OCT; 71(5): 7105190040p1-7105190040p8Summary: OBJECTIVE. We investigated how everyday technology use related to activity involvement over 5 yr in people with mild cognitive impairment. METHOD. Thirty-seven older adults with mild cognitive impairment were evaluated regarding everyday technology use and involvement in activities over time. Information on diagnostic changes was collected from medical files. Linear mixed-effects models were used in data analysis. RESULTS. Ability to use everyday technology showed a significant effect on activity involvement (p = .007) beyond the effects of time, diagnostic change, and age. Decreases in number of everyday technologies used (p < .001) and share of accessible and relevant everyday technologies used (p = .04) were associated with decreasing activity involvement. However, these two aspects did not reinforce each other. CONCLUSION. When monitoring activity involvement in clients with cognitive decline, health care professionals should take into account clients’ ability to use everyday technologies and the amount of everyday technologies they use.
