Assistive Technology survey seeking feedback from SCI community

The Human Engineering Research Laboratories (HERL) at University of Pittsburgh is well known for their work to continuously improve the mobility and function of people with disabilities through advanced engineering in clinical research and medical rehabilitation. They constantly research and survey this population in order to develop proper assistive technology devices to help solve a host of problems and they are now in need of your feedback.

   HERL hosted U.S. Senator Robert Casey on November 6, 2017. In this photo, Sen. Casey (in the middle wheelchair) is driving HERL's PneuChair while accompanied by researcher Brandon Daveler, HERL Director Dr. Rory Cooper, and University of Pittsburgh Chancellor Dr. Patrick Gallagher.

With their current survey, they aim to collect information and opinions directly from individuals living in the United States or its territories who use mobility related assistive technology (e.g., wheelchairs, scooters, walkers, prosthetic limbs, orthotic devices, canes, crutches, etc). With the survey results, they hope to learn what is known about various assistive technologies and where people gain their knowledge of technology and clinical guidelines. One interesting thing about taking this survey is that in the process, you will be introduced to some technologies that may make you go WOW!
