ABSTRACT Since the amount of special input devices on the assisitive technology market is growing the selection of the right device
for an individual user becomes more and more difficult. Once a device is selected and seems to be suitable it may be possible
that it cannot be operated any more after a certain time due to changing user needs as result of a progressive disease. A
system for the assessment of the user interaction with input devices under certain conditions and the possible usage of the
resulting data for further evaluation and for the development and simulation of adaptive input systems will be described by
the authors.

    ABSTRACT: The concept of "arousal" or "activation" serves to break down the distinction between drives (motives) and emotion. It stresses the continuum of arousal in the organism and justifies the conception of a responsive or unresponsive organism rather than responsive or unresponsive segments of behavior. It is hypothesized that the relationship between activation and quality of performance is represented by an inverted U-shaped curve. 40 references.

    ABSTRACT: Reports of 3 experiments testing the hypothesis that the average duration of responses is directly proportional to the minimum average amount of information per response. The results show that the rate of performance is approximately constant over a wide range of movement amplitude and tolerance limits. This supports the thesis that "the performance capacity of the human motor system plus its associated visual and proprioceptive feedback mechanisms, when measured in information units, is relatively constant over a considerable range of task conditions." 25 references.
