Wheelchairs - Rehabilitation Level

Golden GC44D Mobility Scooter

In Alberta, rehab level wheelchairs are typically prescribed by authorized occupational or physiotherapists who have the necessary qualifications to conduct assessments on behalf of agencies such as AADL (Alberta Aids to Daily Living), AHS (Alberta Health Services), WCB (Workers' Compensation Board), and others.

These assessments are comprehensive and aim to ensure that the prescribed wheelchair is suitable for the client's needs. The process involves evaluating the client's ability to use the wheelchair effectively and determining an ergonomically efficient design. It is essential to ensure that the wheelchair meets the client's mobility requirements and that the seating provides optimal safety and health benefits.

Rehab level wheelchairs offer customization and configuration options to enhance control and efficiency in propulsion. By tailoring the wheelchair to the individual's specific needs, proper positioning and seating can be achieved. This reduces the risk of pressure injuries and improves the client's ability to interact with their environment.

During this process, your MEDmobility product consultant can serve as a valuable resource. They can provide guidance and support, helping you navigate the assessment process and select the most appropriate rehab level wheelchair for your specific requirements.

For the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding wheelchair assessments and the specific agencies involved in Alberta, it is advisable to consult with authorized healthcare professionals and the relevant funding agencies.
