Some individuals might experience a decline in physical conditions as they are getting older or due to some medical issues. Due to this, they might not be able to walk without seeking help. If you or someone you know is suffering from such a condition, it is best to get in touch with the occupational therapist at Entrust Care. This will help you to know more about our wheelchair assessment Aylesbury service.
The trained and experienced occupational therapists working with us will initially do a wheelchair assessment. This is done to help the patient remain independent and safe when he or she is moving around. A complete wheelchair assessment will help guarantee an ideal fit between the equipment and the user.
Wheelchair assessments are suitable for individuals with the following medical conditions or difficulties.
● Orthopaedic conditions
● Spinal cord injuries
● Difficult moving outside or inside your home
After a wheelchair assessment, the occupational therapist at Entrust Care will be able to identify how the conditions or difficulties are impacting the individual’s abilities to independently access their environment. The occupational therapist will recommend ways to improve the independence of the individual after completing the assessment.
Some of the medical conditions that are suitable for completing wheelchair assessment are vascular dementia, stroke, cerebral palsy, osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis, amputations, neurological conditions, and more. However, we at Entrust Care will complete wheelchair assessment for individuals without any of the above-mentioned conditions too.
