Purchasing a wheelchair or scooter can be complicated and costly as there are so many different types of powered scooters now available, from a wide variety of retailers. It can be hard for an individual to know what type is best for them and where to purchase it from.
OT Experts assesses and advises on all forms of wheelchairs and powered scooters. From powered wheelchairs to class 2 and class 3 indoor/outdoor scooters. We will discuss with an individual what they wish to use a wheelchair or scooter for, whether for indoor or outdoor use and whether for road or non road use. An assessment can then be undertaken to establish an individual's safety and ability to operate the various types of wheelchair and powered vehicles available.
Further information and advice can also be offered on insurance, storage, accessibility, charging and transportation of any wheelchair or scooter. OT Experts assesses and recommends any additional equipment that may be required such as a ramp to be able to get the wheelchair or scooter safely in/out of the house, or car ramps or hoists to enable safe transportation.
A comprehensive service is provided to ensure that the client gets the type of wheelchair or scooter that they would like and to ensure that they are safe and competent in operating and charging this.
