Presentation Title: Evaluation of Operating Modes for Intelligent Power Wheelchair Systems with Experienced Power Wheelchair Users
Abstract: Mobility is an important aspect of daily living as it allows people to participate in social, leisure and cultural activities, as well as perform tasks necessary for self-care. Without mobility, individuals are at risk for higher rates of depression, reduced quality of life, higher rates of disease, and higher rates of social isolation. There have been significant research efforts to reduce the existing barriers to mobility – specifically, through Intelligent wheelchair systems. However, there has been limited testing and feedback of these solutions with potential users, specifically in operating modes. The purpose of this research study is to test some of the proposed operating modes from research and, specifically, in the context of doorway navigation to gather data and feedback intended for the future development and research.
