Accepting wheelchair use

  • Linda Ann Walker

Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


Statutory wheelchair provision in England and Wales has been equipment led since its inception in 1990. However, users are reported to be dissatisfied with the service and a reorganisation of provision is underway that purports, in accordance with recent Government advice (DOH, 2012), to make the wheelchair user central to the supply process. However, little is known about wheelchair users perspectives of the equipment that they use to inform this process.
