The concept of accessible design and practice of accessible development ensures both "direct access" (i.e. unassisted) and "indirect access" meaning compatibility with a person's assistive technology (for example, computer screen readers).

We reviewed recent research (–) that examined associations of objective measures of the built environment with mobility and disability in adults aged 60 years or by: The survey was oriented to persons with mobility and visual disability and aims to highlight the criticalities and benefits produced by three different urban spaces, such as parking lots, streets.

MOBILITY OF THE DISABLED IN AN URBAN ENVIRONMENT. This study conducted in Leeds was designed to discover how and to what extent people with arthritis in an urban area are restricted by their disability from carrying on their normal day to day activities in their local : J M Buchanan, M A Chamberlain.

Abstract This survey explores the very broad topic of obstacles to independent mobility of persons with disabilities in transport. It concerns both the transport infrastructure and thus also partly the urban environment, transport vehicles, but also services, practices, and attitudes that can create obstacles to mobility.

The home environment and the physical environment close to home (two to three city blocks or miles) are strongly associated with the mobility and social participation of people with mobility. Urban Mobility Design addresses this gap, providing research-based analysis on current and future needs of urban transportation passengers.

The book examines mobility from a uniquely multidisciplinary perspective, involving a variety of innovative. Clarke P, Ailshire J, Bader M, Morenoff J, House J. Mobility disability and the urban built environment.

The aim of the study is to provide a comparative overview of the Italian appr oach to electric mobility and to define future approaches that could be used.

Our research used a web-based survey, applying standard statistical methods to data processing. Also, drawing from the large research base exploring the role of the built environment on transportation, I develop several models that assess the influence of the built environment on travel behavior, in particular, motor vehicle ownership and use.

These models, combined, enable the exploration of sustainable mobility within a given city. The social and psychological dimensions are important to the experience of accessibility. We have interviewed citizens with sight loss and mobility restrictions while walking in an urban environment, talking about accessibility, to gain more knowledge on barriers and accessibility as experienced in an urban environment.

Although the COVID pandemic is currently having a huge negative impact on urban mobility—as discussed in “How COVID Will Shape Urban Mobility,” published in June —and is likely to favor private forms of transportation such as cars and bikes over shared mobility for the next 12 to 18 months, many cities will embrace shared AVs.

We investigated the relationship between urban built environment characteristics and month trajectories of mobility disability in a sample of 1, older adults living in Detroit, MI, a city that has undergone rapid economic and structural decline.

Purpose. There is a need for empirical support of the association between the built environment and disability-related outcomes. This study explores the associations between community and neighborhood land uses and community participation among adults with acquired physical disability.As discussed in Chapter 3, the environmental mat may be conceived of as having two major parts: the physical environment and the social and psychological physical environment may be further subdivided conceptually into the natural environment and the built environment.

Both affect the extent to which a disabling conditions will be experienced by the person as a disability. And research funders should clearly indicate the support they offer to disabled grant applicants and holders – possibly including the provision of flexible and part-time funding.

Creating an environment in which all staff can flourish, irrespective of disability, will require a cultural shift, but it has enormous potential to change universities.
