Personal Behavioral Assistant
The PBA (Personal Behavioral Assistant) is a fully interactive electronic device, in a smaller, more accessible format than a handheld PDA (Personal Digital Assistant). The PBA microcomputer, built into a wristwatch, provides a dedicated platform for custom software applications written to meet our clients’ specific needs. It facilitates patient participation in compliance training and monitoring, and provides the counselor with comprehensive data for evaluation in treatment management. The PBA is ideally suited for dedicated applications, and is significantly less expensive than a PDA.
