Our Occupational Therapists are able to assess and provide impartial advice about whether a scooter is a suitable option for you, which type and what to look for when purchasing.
The assessment will be tailored to your individual needs but may cover the following areas:
- Physical & Cognitive abilities
- Medical conditions and prognosis
- Sitting posture
- Lifestyle requirements & Home situation
- Funding options
- Carers’ abilities (if applicable)
The assessment will also include some training in the safe use of a scooter and address other considerations such as storage, loading into a vehicle etc.
We can also provide training-only if required to build confidence and skills in using a powered scooter.
