Dr. Ben Mortenson Profiled

Dr. Ben Mortenson’s CIHR-funded mobility scooter training study was recently profiled by the Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute, as well as in the Vancouver edition of 24 Hours. Although the numbers of mobility scooters are increasing with Canada’s aging population, the training that is provided for users of these devices is limited, and accidents, falls, and collisions are too common. Mortenson’s community-based research will help users of mobility scooters to navigate their homes and neighbourhoods safely and with confidence.
