Purpose of Study 

Self-efficacy predicts behavioural and rehabilitation outcomes and may be an important psychological factor for wheelchair mobility. A feasibility study will evaluate a novel self-efficacy enhanced wheelchair training intervention for older adults (WheelSeeU) to determine if: 1.WheelSeeU is feasible to administer; 2. WheelSeeU improves wheelchair use, confidence for wheelchair use, wheelchair mobility, and satisfaction with participation in older adults compared to group-based information sessions; and 3. the study design is appropriate. This feasibility study will allow for study design and protocol refinement and will provide pilot data for an experimental trial.
