MetadataShow full item record
The interaction between mobility device and environment is most important in the home where the majority of wheelchair use occurs (1). Environmental barriers, such as unmet home modification needs, may impact the performance of mobility related activities of daily living (MRADLS) (2,3). This study reports preliminary results from a study measuring the effect of home modifications and wheelchair usability on the activities and participation among 78 people who rely on a wheelchair for the majority of their mobility needs.
