Neha Sharma *

ABSTRACT

Objectives: To identify the awareness of support systems available to community mobility in people with mobility disorders. To identify the awareness of barriers to their mobility. Background: The prevalence of disabilities is more in low and middle income countries as compared to high income countries. People with disabilities in developing nations face a number of social, medical, educational, employment and political challenges. Lack of education among the disabled is an important barrier for the effective delivery of services. There are a lot of supports available in the Constitution of India for the people with disabilities. Minimizing the barriers and achieving a state of knowledge about the grants available for the people is what we need to stand up for. Methodology: Research was carried out using a cross sectional epidemiological research design. Sequential sampling was done and 137 subjects carried out the survey. A questionnaire containing the demographics and knowledge of awareness of support systems and about the mobility barriers they are facing were handed out to the population to fill in statistical analysis was carried out using descriptive statistics. Results: The results suggested that the subjects among the population faced a number of mobility barriers while moving inside and outside the house; they were partially aware, fully aware or not at all aware of the support systems available in the constitution for them. The socio economic status as low socio economic status and high socio economic status was found to be significantly varying the level of people awareness. Conclusion: The subjects faced a number of attitudinal and architectural barriers while moving inside and outside the house that was restricting their mobility. Also awareness of subjects regarding support system was differing in various populations. The mobility training wasn’t received by many people whereas some people received a complete mobility training.

Keywords: Mobility difficulty; barriers; awareness; support; grants; disability.
