Abstract: The purpose of the present research study was to examine the effects of wheeled mobility devices on self-reported measures of community participation, quality of life and self-perception on the campus of the University of Illinois Champaign Urbana. The Craig Handicap Assessment Reporting Technique (CHART) and Rosenberg’s Self-Esteem Scale were used to elicit information from research participants. A short demographic survey was also utilized to obtain other background information. The knowledge generated from this study will enhance our understanding of the psychosocial and environmental facilitators and barriers confronting wheelchair user’s mobility and the extent to which manual and power chair are affected differently.
