In a modern environment, optimal and effective hand function is essential for performing daily living activities. Healthy aging has a direct effect on functional capabilities, including those related to arm and hand functions [1]. A touchscreen is an excellent example of state-of-the-art technology that requires unique, fine motor skills such as tapping, swiping and virtual pinching. Assessing these specific hand skills is essential for screening and development of appropriate treatment protocols for the elderly population. The Touchscreen Assessment Tool (TATOO) is an Android application (app) developed to objectively assess hand performance abilities required when using a touchscreen [2]. This pilot study examines the feasibility of using the TATOO app to evaluate touchscreen ability in elderly individuals.
