Discovering Provider Awareness of Assistive Technologies and Clinical Guidelines

This study aims to collect information and opinions directly from individuals living in the United States or its territories who provide, maintain, or develop mobility related assistive technology to see what is known about various assistive technologies and where people get their knowledge of assistive technology and clinical guidelines.

Y will be asked to complete a short questionnaire which will ask you about your disability (if applicable) and the types of assistive mobility devices (manual wheelchair, power wheelchair, scooter, or lower extremity prosthesis, lower extremity orthotic-brace, cane, crutch, walker) that you use. We will also ask you to share your thoughts on where you get information related to assistive mobility technology. Additionally, we will ask you if you are aware of known clinical guidelines related to assistive mobility technology. Finally, we will ask some general questions about you such as your gender, ethnicity, and the type of community setting in which you live.

Must be 18 years of age or older and you currently work to provide, maintain, or develop mobility related assistive technology (e.g. wheelchair, scooter, prosthesis, etc.). To take the survey, follow the link: https://www.ctsiredcap.pitt.edu/redcap/surveys/?s=CYAA4EHF7T or call our office and we will assist you in taking the survey.
