Seating Assessments

Many people with disabilities have difficulty finding seating which meets their needs. There are a wide range of products available on the market, but the problem is in knowing which product suits a person’s particular needs.

We offer a comprehensive seating assessment which includes assessments for comfort chairs, wheelchairs, powered wheelchairs, and alternative specialised seating. The assessment includes a determination of functional ability, postural analysis with reference to diagnosis and prognosis and consideration is given to environmental factors.

Where possible, clients are given the opportunity to try the seat before final recommendations are made. Assessments can be provided onsite or if the client lives in a residential facility/nursing home, the therapist can carry out the assessment at that facility.
