Regional Specialised Seating Service
This service is provided on a Regional basis and is available to all users that have been provided equipment by the Regional Wheelchair Service or their local HSC Wheelchair Service.
The emphasis is on assessing for, designing and manufacturing special seating equipment, and modifications to seating equipment, so that a person’s posture is optimised. This reduces the risk of pressure problems, minimises postural deterioration, and maximises their ability to function in daily life. The focus is usually on the needs of the Service User however Carers needs are also taken into account.
Users of this Service attend regular clinics, either in Musgrave Park Hospital, at their local Wheelchair facility or in their own home to have their wheelchair seating needs addressed, in conjunction with their Occupational Therapist.
The service has access to a large range of solutions – from off-the-shelf individual items to fully custom-made seating or a combination – to give the desired wheelchair seating for the user.
The Service is provided by registered Clinical Scientists.
