Abstract

This article reports a comprehensive wheelchair evaluation for a 48 year old female with spinocerebellar disorder resulting in complete quadriplegia. A thorough wheelchair evaluation process was conducted by an interdisciplinary rehabilitation team consisted of a physician, an occupational therapist, a physical therapist, and a rehabilitation technology supplier. The WHO guidelines for wheelchair evaluation process and the SOAP note documentation format were followed. This is a 46 year old who is in need of a new power wheelchair. This is needed because the current wheelchair is no longer functional and further modifications are not cost-effective and will not correct the problem. Our wheeled mobility and seating intervention team prescribed a new power wheelchair with multiple power seat functions as the most reasonable and cost effective wheelchair in meeting the patient needs, goals, and priorities.
