Mobility Scooter Users
Occupational Therapy

Many people have disabilities that necessitate the use of powered mobility devices. Mobility scooters may be preferred over power wheelchairs, as they are generally more affordable and perceived as less stigmatising. To further understand their needs and experiences, our faculty member and a team of Year 3 Occupational Therapy students conducted research on mobility scooter users. It was found that participants have positive experiences with the scooter, especially after receiving professional training, which can improve safety for users and others. This finding can be helpful to URA and LTA in developing future road system designs and policies.
