Choosing the right wheelchair for your child can be confusing. It is important to get help and advice from your Occupational Therapist, Physiotherapist or your Registered NDIS providers in Brisbane so that your child can receive an assessment.
However, there are some things that you can consider and talk through with your registered NDIS providers in Brisbane. Here’s a simple checklist:
- Style of frame
- Footrest and armrest style
- Backrest height
- Seat depth
- Floor to seat height
- Seat cushions
- Pelvic restraint / belt
- Wheels and castor size
This list will help you when working with your registered NDIS providers in Brisbane to choose the right wheelchair for your child.
