Abstract

In order to gain knowledge about which methods in the assistive technology service delivery process or parts hereof that result in positive outcomes, a literature review was accomplished. 20 publications were included. Some evidence was found that user involvement in the service delivery process and training in assistive device use had a positive impact on outcomes. Also professionals' higher assistive device expertise seems to result in better outcomes. More research within the field is needed, especially studies that compare the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of specific methods applying controlled study designs.
