Barrie, Robert, et al,

Could someone please give me an example of a senior person who is using
some form of assistive technology to overcome motion impairment.

I'm presenting to the New England Geriatric Care Managers Association this
Thursday and need an example.

No names. Just something like: "I know of an older man who is using foot
pedals to overcome severe arthritis in his hands."
