Clinical Trial

Spinal Cord Injury Model Systems Equity and Quality in Assistive Technology (EQuATe)


The objective of this project is to investigate the equity and quality of assistive technology (AT) provision and outcomes for individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI) or a diagnosis that affects the spinal cord.

Aim 1: Collect descriptive data on AT used by individuals with SCI including smart home technologies and manual/power wheelchairs. 

Aim 2: Investigate barriers and facilitators (training) to AT use for individuals with SCI.

Aim 3: Investigate the influence of individual characteristics such as financial strain, educational quality, health literacy, and geographic location on differences in AT access and quality and other health- and participation-related outcomes for individuals with SCI. This data will help us to identify disparities in AT provision and individuals who are at a greater risk for poor outcomes.
