A road trip with the OTs

After a 3 hours of being wedged in a car full of folders and piles of paper, the research team (7 Occupational therapists and myself) arrived in Donnington – this year’s venue for the Mobility Roadshow.

Our aim was to conduct design Research at the Mobility roadshow to discover the unmet needs of people who require mobility assistance. After interviewing people about their mobility requirements and future mobility desires, we took the opportunity to learn about some of the latest equipment to help with mobility needs and try out some of the latest assistive gadgets, including some awesome electric wheelchairs which were unbelievably easy to manoeuvre!
