Abstract

In recent years, the field of Inclusive Paediatric Mobility (IPM) has gained increasing interest from a variety of disciplines and stakeholders, including designers and engineers, healthcare professionals, policymakers, children and families. This has led to increased visibility and understanding, as well as the development of new products and services. However, knowledge around IPM design remains fragmented and with many issues around the desirability, feasibility, and viability of interventions. This is the first illustrative mapping review of the IPM design field to capture, classify, and analyse IPM design contributions chronologically over the past five decades. The review explores relationships between contributions, their context, and their significance in the landscape of IPM at the time. This paper outlines insights from the mapping review and highlights key trends, gaps, and issues in the IPM design field since 1970. Key themes and considerations are proposed for a framework to improve the future of IPM design.

50 Years of Inclusive Design for Childhood Mobility; Insights from an Illustrative Mapping Review

In recent years, the field of Inclusive Paediatric Mobility (IPM) has gained increasing interest from a variety of disciplines and stakeholders, including designers and engineers, healthcare professionals, policymakers, children and families. This has led to increased visibility and understanding, as well as the development of new products and services. However, knowledge around IPM design remains fragmented and with many issues around the desirability, feasibility, and viability of interventions. This is the first illustrative mapping review of the IPM design field to capture, classify, and analyse IPM design contributions chronologically over the past five decades. The review explores relationships between contributions, their context, and their significance in the landscape of IPM at the time. This paper outlines insights from the mapping review and highlights key trends, gaps, and issues in the IPM design field since 1970. Key themes and considerations are proposed for a framework to improve the future of IPM design.
