Kylberg, Marianne LU ; Löfqvist, Charlotte LU ; Horstmann, Vibeke LU and Iwarsson, Susanne LU (2013) 12th European AAATE (Association for the Advancement of Assistive Technology in Europe) In Assistive Technology 33. p.190-194
Abstract
To describe outdoor barriers in the nearby home environments of very old people, and to investigate whether the presence of these environmental barriers differed between users and non-users of mobility devices (MDs). Method: Baseline data on 397 Swedish people aged 80-89 years, collected with a study-specific question on MD use and a subset of the environmental component of the Housing Enabler instrument, assessing the outdoor environment nearby home, were used. Descriptive statistics were used for data analysis.
