Consumer Protection and New Technologies.
Norrgard, Lee
Generations, v19 n1 p47-48 Spr 1995
Looks at the problems of consumer fraud related to assistive technology for consumers, usually older adults. Notes two examples of abuse: (1) a firm selling personal emergency response systems at a price related to the value of the house or yearly income of the consumer and (2) eight hearing aid manufacturers who made unsubstantiated claims about background noise.
