Responsibility for the assessment of patients prior to the selection and provision of the appropriate wheelchair has recently moved from a few specialist centres to the local health care providers (District Health Authorities, Hospitals and Trusts). Every District Hospital or equivalent now has a Wheelchair Service, involving staff with no previous training or experience in the provision of care to wheelchair users and requiring them to be aware of the issues involved in assessing patients and choosing the equipment most suited to individuals' needs. This change in wheelchair provision means that students of the relevant professions now cover this topic as part of their undergraduate programme. This book is a comprehensive, patient-focussed, practical and clinically based text on the assessment of patients and their needs prior to selecting the most appropriate wheelchair or other special seating for their needs. It is intended for use by those working in the clinical situation as well as by undergraduates in training. Features: * Meets the newly created need resulting from the move of wheel chair provision from specialised centres * There is no direct competition * Brings together infromation which is otherwise dotted around various now out-of-date sources * Written by a multi-disciplinary team of experts with long experience in this work [via]
