Start Date:


A scoping review of educational online resources for mobility assistive technology users and their caregivers. The aims of this project are to: 1) Identify existing web-based educational resources intended to train people with disabilities and their caregivers on how to use their mobility devices (wheelchairs, walking aids); 2) Assess the quality of exiting educational resources; and 3) Develop a resources catalogue and a prototype of an online knowledge transfer tool to inform potential users of the availability of these educational resources. Completion of the scoping review is anticipated for September 2017, and then data synthesis and manuscript preparation will commence.
