Meeting Personal Needs

3 dimensions of needs

A powered wheelchair should ideally reflect its user's lifestyle choices and social circumstances, maximising their capacity for everyday independence, participation and meaningful occupation.

To achieve this, each prescription requires assessment of what components of powerchair technology are required to enable reasonable functional capacity and environmental access, support the user's wellbeing by minimising health and safety risks, and avoid the need for costly personal support.
