Abstract

This paper provides a comprehensive review of movement disability, highlighting challenges faced by the movement disabled individuals and the interventions by the research community. It analyses evolving assistive mobility devices and emerging technologies like Internet of Things (IoT), Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality(AR),which offer innovative solutions for rehabilitation. Mobility is a fundamental aspect of human life, and individuals with mobility impairments, whether temporary or permanent, often require the support of wheelchairs, assistive canes, crutches, hoists, and walking frames. The integration of these technologies and devices in the rehabilitation process and potential synergy between traditional and advanced solutions are explored. The paper also addresses challenges, ethical considerations, and future directions in assistive mobility devices and rehabilitation, emphasizing user-centric design and accessibility. Future research should prioritize addressing these challenges to enhance mobility and improve the quality of life for individuals with movement disabilities.
