Study conducted to evaluate the psychometric properties of the Chinese version of the Quebec User Evaluation With Assistive Technology 2.0 (C-QUEST), and to explore its applicability to mobility equipment and user satisfaction among people from China who have spinal cord injuries. A group of six experts evaluated the content validity and translation quality of the 12-item C-QUEST, as it was administered to 33 participants along with the World Health Organization Quality of Life Questionnaire. The content validity and item performance were determined to be satisfactory. The 12-item C-QUEST was also shown to be a valid and relevant instrument in evaluating user satisfaction among people from China who have spinal cord injuries in terms of mobility and seating equipment. Implications for future research are discussed.
