Abstract:
Survey study examined consumer experiences and attitudes toward using portable electronic devices as memory and organizational aids after traumatic brain injury (TBI). Two thirds of the 80 participants reported regular use of computers, but only one-third had experience with handheld computer or similar devices. Both interest in and comfort with new technologies was relatively high. Respondents expressed preferences for key device features, including simplicity of use, technical support, and long-lasting battery power. Preferred functions included keeping track of money spent, remembering things to do, and remembering what other people say.
