Abstract

Wheelchair prescription is relevant in the prevention of muscular joint pathology, and to facilitate autonomy and the patient's social life. However, in order to reach this goal, respecting the standards with a client-centred approach is essential. Congruence between user ability and wheelchair characteristics by making wheelchairs more "user friendly" can improve patient independence, facilitate integration into society and improve the patient's quality of life. The purpose of this study was to analyse congruence of wheelchair use by our patients, through the consideration of specific recommendations related to each subject's individual clinical situation. The second aim of the paper was to improve wheelchair prescriptions, by identifying the most frequent mistakes in the prescription and construction of wheelchairs.
