PowerUp - an integrated multi-touch surface for wheelchairs

Postby UMBCresearch » Wed Apr 04, 2012 4:24 pm

We are investigating the needs of individuals with limited mobility when using technological devices such as mobile phones and computers . In this study, participants will be asked a number of questions about their usage habits and opinions of these technological devices, as well as questions about the extent of their mobility limitations.

We are looking to recruit individuals who have limited mobility, and use power wheelchairs. All participants must be at least 18 years old.

Participants of this study may help to lay the foundations for the design of an integrated multi-touch surface system for power wheelchairs.

The survey will take approximately half an hour.
