          Abstract

          This paper describes a developed Android application to accompany the SmartAbility Framework, in order to recommend technologies for people with reduced physical ability. The framework is a culmination of previously conducted research, including requirements elicitation and technology trials. The application is based on a previous prototype version that required manual input of user abilities. The presented version detects the action that users are able to perform independently through the adoption of sensor technologies that are built-into Android devices, such as the accelerometer and step counter. The knowledge contained within the framework is subsequently used to derive recommendations of technology that could be suitable for the user. Future enhancements to the application will enable complete automatic detection, without the requirement for manual input. The exploitation of the SmartAbility application is anticipated to increase technology awareness amongst the user community, as well as providing a means for assistive technology manufacturers to promote their products.

          Use of The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) as a conceptual framework and common language for disability statistics and health information systems

          A common framework for describing functional status information is needed in order to make this information comparable and of value. The World Health Organization’s International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF), which has been approved by all its member states, provides this common language and framework. The article provides an overview of ICF taxonomy, introduces the conceptual model which underpins ICF and elaborates on how ICF is used at population and clinical level. Furthermore, the article presents key features of the ICF tooling environment and outlines current and future developments of the classification.

            Biomechanics of the ankle

            This paper provides an introduction to the biomechanics of the ankle, introducing the bony anatomy involved in motion of the foot and ankle. The complexity of the ankle anatomy has a significant influence on the biomechanical performance of the joint, and this paper discusses the motions of the ankle joint complex, and the joints at which it is proposed they occur. It provides insight into the ligaments that are critical to the stability and function of the ankle joint. It describes the movements involved in a normal gait cycle, and also highlights how these may change as a result of surgical intervention such as total joint replacement or fusion.
