Abstract

Many players are involved in the procurement of seating devices, including the user, occupational or physical therapist, rehabilitation technology supplier, technician, and rehabilitation engineer. Mobility interventions should be selected to meet functional goals. Seat depth and width are crucial to a properly fitting mobility base. Both manual and powered mobility, as well as many other wheelchair options, are reviewed.
