Wheelchair Seating & Positioning Clinic
Patients are assessed by a RESNA certified physical therapist who works closely with the patient, physician and the vendor to determine the best seating solution for the patient. Referrals are accepted from the patient, physician, vendor or therapist. Once a physician's order for a seating assessment is received and medical history acquired, the patient is scheduled.
The services provided by the Wheelchair Seating and Positioning Clinic are available to any patient in need of custom seating. Custom seating may include manual and power wheelchairs, custom backrests and seat cushions.
