We are looking for volunteers who ...

  • are 18 years of age or older and
  • use one or more assistive devices for mobility, such as a cane, walker, manual wheelchair, power wheelchair, scooter, or lower extremity prosthesis

Researchers at the Human Engineering Research Laboratories want to know what you know about assistive technology.

Complete a brief research questionnaire that will ask for specific information about yourself, the types of assistive technology that you use, what you know about specific devices, and what sources you use to get your information.

If you would like to participate but don't have access to the internet, please contact one of our Clinical Coordinators.

Following completion of the questionnaire you may choose to be entered into a drawing to win $100.
