We investigated associations among activity engagement (AE), number of
available and relevant everyday technologies, ability to use everyday
technologies, and cognitive status among older adults in an urban area. METHOD:
This cross-sectional study included 110 participants and used three assessments:
the Frenchay Activities Index to measure AE, the Everyday Technology Use
Questionnaire to measure the number of and ability to use available and relevant
everyday technologies, and the Montreal Cognitive Assessment to measure cognitive
status. Data analyses used a one-way analysis of variance and a multiple linear
regression model. RESULTS: The number of available and relevant everyday
technologies was significantly different (p < .001) among groups that varied in
level of AE. Ability to use everyday technologies did not significantly differ
among groups. Cognitive status did not explain level of AE when the number of
available and relevant everyday technologies was considered. CONCLUSION:
Increasing the accessibility of available and relevant everyday technologies
among older adults in an urban area may increase AE.
