Help researchers with the study of mobility issues, aging and social participation. Voice your opinions on a topic that is relevant to you!
There are two studies that are in progress at the moment. One involves scooter users and looks at the reliability of several tools to assess scooter skills and issues such as confidence and accessibility. The other study is focused on the differing levels of mobility and social participation in people aging with spinal cord injuries versus people who sustain a spinal cord injury later in life.
Both studies entails 2 visits to either GF Strong (4255 Laurel Street, close to King Edward and Oak) or Blusson Spinal Cord Centre (818 W.10th Ave). Each visit will range in time from 2-2.5 hours, and participants will receive a $25 stipend per visit.
