Abstract
This report covers the project period from 1.4.2003 to 31.08.2005. Project organisation, administration including the accounts, and the work carried out are reported. Besides, suggestions for copyright are put forward together with plans for dissemination activities and need for further research.

The NAME was developed by the project group, consisting of all partners who have all contributed in an excellent way and have besides spent far more resources than planned for, financed by various sources. The work has been accomplished by meetings in the project group and a smaller working group; by literature reviews; meetings with mobility device user reference groups, groups of assistive technology experts, and researchers; and by...

This report covers the project period from 1.4.2003 to 31.08.2005. Project organisation, administration including the accounts, and the work carried out are reported. Besides, suggestions for copyright are put forward together with plans for dissemination activities and need for further research.

The NAME was developed by the project group, consisting of all partners who have all contributed in an excellent way and have besides spent far more resources than planned for, financed by various sources. The work has been accomplished by meetings in the project group and a smaller working group; by literature reviews; meetings with mobility device user reference groups, groups of assistive technology experts, and researchers; and by accomplishment of extensive pilot-testing, revisions and translations of the instrument. During the course of the project a number of major challenges have been faced requiring careful consideration and communication in the project group to an extent not possible to plan for in advance.

The result of the project is the NAME 1.0 in the five Nordic language versions. It is an instrument for evaluation of mobility and mobility-related outcomes of mobility device interventions consisting of a baseline interview questionnaire, a follow-up interview questionnaire, and a manual. The instrument has reached sufficient face and content validity, and feasibility. The project group recommends that the NAME 1.0 should be available for use, but would like to emphasise that considerable further testing and development is needed. (Less)
