NOMO 1.0 - An instrument for studies of the effect of using mobility devices

Project: Research


An interview instrument NOMO 1.0 (Nordic Mobility-Related Participation Outcome Evaluation of Assistive Device Interventions) was developed to enable studies of the effect of using mobility devices, as regards moving around as such, and as regards mobility-related participation. NOMO 1.0 has been developed within the framework of a Nordic collaboration called NAME (The Nordic Assisted Mobility Evaluation) and can be used by staff in county councils and municipalities and by researchers. The instrument is intended to produce data and results that can be used for quality development and prioritization of assistive device measures. NOMO 1.0 was developed during a step-by-step process in which device users, researchers and practitioners in the Nordic countries cooperated and tested different versions of the questionnaire as it was being developed. The NOMO 1.0 has recently gone through a Nordic test-retest reliability testing and the results are presented in an article in the Journal of Rehabilitation Medicine. NOMO 1.0 is now available in five languages and is available for use free of charge. The Swedish copyright is held by Lund University and the Swedish Handicap Institute, with Professor Iwarsson as contact. Use the links to get free access to NOMO 1.0.
Susanne Iwarsson and Åse Brandt have written an article about the development of the instrument that was published in Swedish journal Arbetsterapeuten, 5/2006. This article describes early phases in the development of the instrument and the name of the instrument is therefore not the same as the final name NOMO 1.0.
