Physical health problems for carers of wheelchair users

Hi, I'm a final-year Product Design student at the University of Huddersfield, and I'm currently investigating the health problems associated with caring for a wheelchair user, an area of particular interest as it relates to my own duties as a carer at home. Information gathered from this research will then be translated into new product design concepts or redesigns of existing products.

I would be extremely grateful if carers who assist people in a wheelchair could fill out this questionnaire -

Alternatively, if you use a wheelchair yourself, please could you fill out this questionnaire -

If you have any thoughts or comments on aspects of caring for wheelchair users or general wheelchair use I would be very interested to hear them!

Your identity will be kept fully confidential (pseudonyms will be used instead) and any information you give in the questionnaires will be kept completely anonymous.

Thank you!
