The objective of the trial was to evaluate the effectiveness of an automated interactive prompting technology in supporting the morning routine of persons with acquired brain injury. The morning routine included maintaining personal hygiene and dressing.
The trial took place in an inpatient neurorehabilitation hospital and involved 24 participants with acquired brain injuries.
The results of the trial were positive. The intervention significantly reduced the support required to complete the task compared with usual rehabilitation.
The conclusion that can be drawn from the trial is that micro-prompting technology such as Guide is an effective assistive technology for cognition, which reduces support needs in people with significant cognitive impairments.
