Wheelchair Seating and Mobility

Wilson Workforce and Rehabilitation Center offers specialized services for evaluation and assessment of DRS sponsored clients who use wheelchairs or scooters for mobility in their home, job, or community. An experienced team of physical and occupational therapists, along with a certified Assistive Technology Provider (ATP) provides thorough evaluations of wheelchair seating and mobility/positioning needs, then match available technology, using client trials of the technology, to determine the best solution for a client’s mobility needs. WWRC has access to state-of-the-art wheelchairs and seating components which are used during the evaluation to ensure prescriptions are written using the most appropriate and current technology available. Custom seating modifications can be provided on a limited basis depending on complexity.
