Research participants wanted!

Are you (or someone you know) an older adult with a
long-term mobility impairment?

Researchers at the University of Illinois are conducting an interview study that explores the everyday challenges older adults with long-term mobility impairment experience as they age.

This is a one-time study that consists of two parts: 1) questionnaires (~1 hour) and 2) an interview (~1 hour to 1.5 hours). All aspects of this study can be done remotely: the questionnaires can be completed online and the interview remotely via phone call or video call. Participants will be compensated $30 in the form of an Amazon Ecode for their time.

Participants must:

  • Be between the ages of 70-79 years
  • Self-identify:

o  Mobility impaired: using a mobility aid (i.e., cane, crutches, wheelchair, walker, or scooter) and having serious difficulty walking or climbing stairs (or unable to walk or climb stairs)

  • Have had the mobility impairment prior to the age of 50
  • Be fluent in English
  • Live in the United States

We look forward to hearing from you! Kind regards, Lyndsie
