Developing a comprehensive measure of mobility: mobility over varied environments scale (MOVES)
Hirsch, Jana A., Meghan Winters, Joanie Sims-Gould, Philippa J. Clarke, Nathalie Ste-Marie, Maureen Ashe, and Heather A. McKay. 2017. "Developing a comprehensive measure of mobility: mobility over varied environments scale (MOVES)." BMC Public Health, 17(1): 513.
While recent work emphasizes the multi-dimensionality of mobility, no current measure incorporates multiple domains of mobility. Using existing conceptual frameworks we identified four domains of mobility (physical, cognitive, social, transportation) to create a â€œMobility Over Varied Environments Scaleâ€ (MOVES). We then assessed expected patterns of MOVES in the Canadian population.
