    Lateral Boby Support for Wheelchairs

    I am getting my indoor power chair next week which I am excited about. I will need my headmaster collar on but I also need lateral support to stop my upper body leaning to one side.My OT Came today and showed me the new armchair I will be getting with more support.i mentioned it to her but got no response .

    Hi AM;

    Pleased that your OT is trying to sort a more suitable chair but I hope it is still a rise and recline one.

    Do you know what make and model of wheelchair that you are getting. It will probably be the wheelchair services that will supply and alter it to suit you and the OT would not have much or anything to do with that.

    My chair has supports that can be attached and some have molded seats that do similar. Also if it can recline then that helps hold you in a bit as well.

    Love Terry

    It will only remain so if new people post and keep us updated on things that work or don't work and tips.

    Please post on old threads that are of use so that others see them and feel free to start new subjects and threads.
