Aidacare Healthcare Equipment, Cardiff

Manual wheelchairs, power wheelchairs and power assist options all have their place within the industry. For some of our clients, it can be an easy choice of which option might be best, but for others this decision can feel overwhelming. Ensuring the right match between the user and the product is essential in achieving the best outcome by meeting the user’s needs and goals.

This full-day session will begin with a look into the assessment. We will go into detail, the key questions and information required to help guide what options might be best for our client. Then, we will take a look into each mobility option: Manual wheelchairs, power wheelchair and power assist options. This will include hands-on time with the products. We will finish the day by bringing all the information together and work through case examples.
