    Wheelchair Mobility study - participants wanted

    Hi Care Cure Community!
    The Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, in collaboration with McMaster University, is currently seeking research participants for a study involving wheelchair mobility in people living with spinal cord injury. This study hopes to enforce the importance of wheelchair skills and how these skills can help to positively influence a person’s level of physical activity and community participation.

    Would it be possible to circulate this information to people who might be interested in participating?

    What participants will do:
    1) Engage in a wheelchair skills test (with trained supervision)
    2) Complete some questionnaires
    3) Have an activity monitor for 7 days

    Attached is a flyer/advertisement and a letter of information regarding this study. Participants will be reimbursed $25.00.
    For further information, please do not hesitate to contact our project coordinator:
