Meaningful Mobility: a novel approach to movement within and between places in later life

Project description

New approach to enhance research of mobility and health in later life

Mobility is a significant driver for ageing people’s health and well-being. Gerontological research highlights the role outdoor mobility plays in active ageing. However, physical and cognitive handicaps limit the mobility of many older people. The EU-funded MeaningfulMobility project will approach the problem comprehensively, using the capability approach to study movement experiences in ageing people, both healthy and impaired. It will conduct an in-depth comparative study on three categories of aged people: healthy adults, stroke survivors and adults diagnosed with early stage Alzheimer’s. The study will be conducted in the Netherlands, the UK and India. The project will transform gerontological research, focusing on the relationship between mobility, health and well-being in ageing people.
