Survey: Sport engagement and assistive technology

Maynooth University, Loughborough University and VU Amsterdam University are collaborating to carry out important research to further engagement in sport for people with disabilities.

Do you use every day Assistive Technologies (AT) to engage with sport? If you are 18+ and use Assistive Technology (AT) or provide support/coach or teach an AT user, this survey is for you! 

Maynooth University, in collaboration with colleagues from Loughborough University and VU Amsterdam University, are carrying out research to learn more about how every-day assistive technologies facilitate engagement in sport.

The study is concerned with the how GATE‘s (Global Cooperation on Assistive Technology) Priority Assistive Products impact AT (Assistive Technology)-user’s participation in and engagement with sport.

Engagement in sport – for us – is a very broad concept. It could involve anything from watching sports on TV to playing a sport with friends, to competing at an elite level. We also think of sport broadly – everything from physical activity in your environment, individual activities like dance, swimming, or cycling, or traditional and team sports. If you consider it sport – we do too!

Participation

We are also looking for a variety of opinions - we want to hear from AT users, but also from their caregivers, supporters, coaches, and teachers. If you are 18+ and use Assistive Technology (AT) or provide support/coach or teach an AT user, this survey is for you!

Complete the survey here

By anonymously answering this 15 minute survey, you will contribute to important research on AT and sports. The survey will be open until Wednesday, May 19th 2021.

You will also find information about follow-up focus group discussions on this topic at the end of this survey.
