Effect of Mobility Device and Environmental Facilitators on Activity and Participation

This project includes two substudies to investigate the relationship between wheelchair type and environmental modifications as they impact activity performance and participation in three settings: home, workplace, and community. Specifically, Substudy 1 (Home) will assess the interactive effects of wheelchair type and home modifications on: 1) performance of home activities and 2) participation at home, work and the community. Substudy 2 (Work) will assess the interactive effects of wheelchair type and workplace accommodations on: 1) performance of work activities and 2) participation at home, work and the community. The project will result in a more systematic understanding of the interaction between wheeled mobility device and environmental facilitators which will inform clinician, policy and implementation decisions about the effectiveness of different devices given a particular setting.
