Abstract

This case report illustrates a feeding device prescription process for a Chinese woman with congenital upper limb deficiency, using the Human Activity Assistive Technology (HAAT) model. Positive experience was identified through a semi-structured interview after the participant had used the tailor-made feeding device. This report supports the HAAT model application and the importance of the sociocultural contexts in the assistive device prescription process.
