Lecture 2 January 11, 2017
Tech and Health Lecture 2:
What is technology?
- Using knowledge in a reasonable way to a specific area
- The capability given by this practical application of knowledge
- CAPABILITY OF ACCOMPLISHING A TASK
What is health?
- 1948 WHO definition has not changed
- Health condition depends on context, environment and personal factors taken into
account when trying to determine how a health condition affects the individual.
- Diagram: ICF model
Activity is being able to do activities of daily life
Being able to participate in a job or go to school and participate in society
Societal attitudes and disabling environment
Function: health and disability as a continuum
When you have impairment or a limitation in your activities or a
restriction of your participation it can cause your condition to become
worse. All these factors can be modified.
Everyone will have a health condition or disability at some point in their
life and so this way we are able to look at health in context in the
environment and considering everyone and how we can intervene using
technologies.
- Functioning is key to health
Competence-Press Model
- Each person comes with a level of competence. Competence being those
functional factors. Certain level of physical, mental, and intellectual abilities.
- The environment: factors that will push you and demand a behavioural response
from you.
- If the environment is not adapted to your restrictions, then the environment is
putting a strong demand on you and your competence does not meet it leading to
negative maladaptive behaviour.
- Matching individual’s competence and the environmental press (the line in the
middle).
Dr. Jutai Model
- Medical technology: life support
- Assistive technology: living support
Self support cane
Care support feeding devices
Vocational support work
Leisure support like a brace to help you keep doing leisure activities
- Does not mean a better QOF but the idea is that in some cases depending on the
needs of the person, there are some places where these technologies can help.
Health Spending
- Good technology will increase life expectancy but increase the costs
Forces inhibiting lack of growth
- Lack of standards
