Introduction/Purpose: This study assessed the association between mobility in later life and information technology ability. A cross-sectional design was employed to collect data.
Method: The participants were 890 older adults in Accra who were aged 60 years or higher. Hierarchical linear regression analysis was used to present the findings.
Results: The study found that higher mobility in old age was associated with higher information technology ability. Two domains of information technology ability (i.e., internet use assessment and innovativeness attitude) were found to be positively associated with mobility.
Conclusion: In conclusion, a higher ability to use of information technologies is associated with mobility in old age.
