A case study of a long term wheelchair user: This presentation will highlight the difficulties associated with matching client's environmental access, seating and mobility needs using multi-functional systems, which also happen to be the "latest and greatest" technologies. The paper addresses the issues experienced by these clinicians when prescribing systems with minimal trial history (due to their newness) and the compatibility issues encountered by the supplier when matching the new with the old of the current powered wheelchair for a particularly motivated wheelchair user.
