Cramp, M., Morris, L., & Turton, A. Case Studies for the paper: 'Service user perspectives on the future of mobility assistive devices: Understanding user’s assistive device experiences and needs

Purpose: Current assistive devices are inadequate in addressing the needs of some people living with impaired mobility. This study explored the experiences of living with impaired mobility in relation to how wearable assistive adaptive and rehabilita...
