Following on from the Decision Tree for Power Wheelchairs from our last blog post, in this post we have a Decision Tree for manual wheelchair prescription. The Decision trees were developed by David Quach (Occupational Therapist, Aspire Rehab), who has many years’ experience in prescribing assistive technology. Like his fantastic Decision Tree for prescribing power wheelchairs, this decision tree can help a clinician determine whether a scripted or off the shelf wheelchair will suit, and again look at how to work out whether certain wheelchair features could be provided.
We’re very thankful that David has generously allowed us to share this wonderful resource. The Decision Tree he developed for Power Wheelchairs is also available here.
Stayed tuned for our next blog post where we’ll share the Decision Tree that David has developed for use when prescribing power assist devices.
