Wheelchair and Adaptive Seating Clinic

 When patients depend on a wheelchair for mobility, a proper fit is essential. We offer a regularly-scheduled Wheelchair Clinic, a set of services designed to help patients have the greatest mobility possible, both at home and wherever they go in the community.

Clinic Services

Many situations may call for use of a wheelchair or other assist device. These include:

The Rehabilitation Institute of Ohio Wheelchair and Seating Clinic at Miami Valley Hospital will help patients determine their needs and develop skills. Services include: 

  • A review to make sure patients get the right device—such as a walking aid, a standard or specialty manual wheelchair, a scooter, or a power wheelchair—with any medical or other pertinent factors taken into consideration.
  • An assessment of posture and balance to determine your best seating system, along with suggestions, if appropriate, for specific cushions
  • Comprehensive evaluation of how patients move about at home and in public spaces
  • Opportunities to try different types of equipment at the clinic or even at home, to be sure it meets the patient’s needs
  • Pressure-mapping to choose the optimal cushion for comfort and skin protection
  • Recommendations for any adjustments or modifications to make the chair better

Clinic Team

The clinic team includes licensed physical therapists, and wheelchair vendors. Our clinic at the Rehabilitation Institute of Ohio has been helping people gain independence for more than two decades and is certified by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities — specifically for its stroke and spinal cord injury programs.
