Improve Available Assistive Mobility Technology

Discovering Provider Awareness of Assistive Technologies and Clinical Guidelines

The questionnaire will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. You will not directly benefit from participating in this research, however, the information collected may help the research team evaluate and/or improve ways to spread knowledge of assistive technologies which may in turn benefit users of these devices, caregivers, and clinicians in the future.

This is the 2nd in a series of surveys for the Voice of the Provider research study in which we aim 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.

If you agree to participate, you 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.
