From extreme weather phenomena to routine public transport cancellations, unexpected disruptions in our mobility can impact the ability to reach and engage with our day-to-day activities. While these can be unpleasant to anyone, little is known on how people with mobility impairments cope with such disruptions.University College London invite people with mobility impairments to participate in their experiment “Maintaining accessibility in disruptions. Evaluating disabled peoples capability to complete activities with respect to mobility”. The project has UCL ethics approval 7111/001.
Who?• People with mobility impairments (e.g. wheelchair users, crutches users etc.)• Living, working or studying in London• Have an android phone
What?• Download and install an android phone app and use it for a period of a month. The app itself works in the phone’s background and requires minimal user input (less than a minute per day)• The user input is in the form of travel diary questionnaire and reporting any type of travel disruptions
