Primary use / Purpose: 

The Quebec User Evaluation of Satisfaction with assistive Technology (QUEST) was designed to measure the level of satisfaction attribute to assistive technologies. It does so using 27 variables which are scored in terms of perceived importance and satisfaction.

Background: 

The technology available today has made possible a vast number of assistive technologies. With the plethora of assistive tools available it is important to have systematic methods of measuring their value to the people who use them. This is what the Quebec User Evaluation of Satisfaction with assistive Technology (QUEST) aims to do. The scale has been designed, examined, and re-examined with the help of expert panels and it is unique in its emphasis on user directed and interactive measures of satisfaction.
