Topic
Complex Rehabilitation Wheelchairs and Seating
Topic Info
Oftentimes, while getting evaluated for a custom wheelchair, clients will comment: "Gee, I had no idea it was this involved to get a wheelchair." The general perception is that getting a wheelchair just requires taking physical measurements and picking a color. Although, this may work in a few circumstances, it won't work for individuals who rely on the wheelchair for mobility and comfortable seating. Rich Salm joins the show to take the listener through the evaluation process of one wheelchair user.
