Abstract (Translated): 
The partially disregarded right of self-determination of those in need of care, the more frequent refusal of care by relatives and the complexity of professional care work and the above-average psychological and physical workload are currently leading to a discourse on the inclusion of assistance technologies in care. Associations of persons in need of care and professional associations of the care sector describe that the low use of assistance technologies in care is due to their confusing diversity and their insufficient benefit assessment. Is assistance technology explicitly suitable for nursing contexts? How extensive is the introduction and maintenance of assistance technologies? Will there be a feeling of? If questions about monitoring, stigmatisation or incapacitation by an assistance technology are not asked beforehand, this will quickly lead to disillusionment and to a lasting rejection of future assistance technologies as well. The B-TiP is the first quantifiable assessment tool that addresses all relevant questions of an evidence-based, critically reflected integration of assistance technologies in the immediate care context. Based on previous scientific models and instruments, B-TiP brings together the relevant "premises" for the acquisition and use of assistance technologies, the range of applications with regard to "care and safety" and the benefits for "carers and those in need of care" in a clear and exemplary manner. B-TiP is intended to stimulate the critically reflected but appreciative integration of assistance technologies into care.
