Transcript of Adaptive and Assistive Technology Science

By Austin Ramsey Adaptive and Assistive Technology Assistive Technology Adaptive Technology Adaptive Examples Assistive Examples Technology Biotechnology Consequences of Technology The End What is adaptive and assistive technology?

SPI 0807.T/E.4 Differentiate between adaptive and assistive engineered products (e.g., food, biofuels, medicines, integrated pest management).
GLE 0807.T/E.4 Describe and explain adaptive and assistive bioengineered products.
0807.T/E.4 Research bioengineering technologies that advance health and contribute to improvements in our daily lives. Assistive Technology refers to “any item, piece of equipment, or product system, whether acquired commercially, modified, or customized, that is used to increase, maintain, or improve functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities Adaptive Technology covers items that are specifically designed for persons with disabilities and would seldom be used by non-disabled persons. Assistive Technology is any object or system that increases or maintains the capabilities of people with disabilities Any object or system that is specifically designed for the purpose of increasing or maintaining the capabilities of people with disabilitie

Artificial Limb What is Technology in Science? SPI 0807.T/E.3 Distinguish between the intended benefits
and the unintended consequences of a new technology. GLE 0807.T/E.1 Explore how technology responds to social, political, and economic needs. Refers to the making, modification, usage, and knowledge of tools, machines, techniques, crafts, systems, and methods of organization, in order to
solve a problem, improve a preexisting solution to a problem, achieve a goal, handle an applied input/output relation or perform a specific function. Existed for many many years! As an example, consider the development of a nuclear power plant at an ocean site. The anticipated and intended goal or consequence is the production of electric power. The undesired but common and expected consequence is the heating of the ocean water near the plant.
An undesired and improbable consequence would be a major explosion, and we would associate the term 'risk' with this outcome, but not with the heating of the water.
