Abstract

The Internet is a valuable resource for accessing health information and resources. However, for individuals that experience sustained or temporary changes in hand mobility, using an input device to navigate the Internet can be difficult. Further, variances in hand mobility among individuals with different abilities make it difficult to design assistive technology solutions that support a wide range of needs. We present findings from an exploratory study with three diverse groups with different motor abilities to understand their preferences for pointing behavior information collected through automatic tracking. We found that overall participants did not find pointing information useful without assistance, while younger and older adults valued quantified pointing information differently.
