Posture and Mobility Service
The Posture and Mobility Service assess for and provides manual and powered wheelchairs cross Wales. The service provides the delivery, collection, repair and maintenance of the wheelchair equipment. In South Wales there are approximately 45,000 long term users who require essential wheelchair and seating equipment ranging from a straightforward issue to an individual assessment for specialised and powered wheelchairs, including special seating.
As of 1st December 2018 the boundary between the North and South Wales Wheelchair Services has altered to make it easier for both service users and referrers to choose the correct service to contact. Please see the attached list for further details
The Posture and Mobility service in Wales loses 100’s of manual and powered wheelchairs each year, mainly because families are unsure where their relatives acquired them from initially. Please see the attached flyer for South Wales that will help you identify if the equipment belongs to us and how you can arrange collection.
We run courses that allow health professionals who refer patients to the Wheelchair Service in Wales to improve the quality of the information they provide to us. If you would like more information, or would like to attend a course, please see the Referrer Training section of the website.
Listed here are a set of videos designed to help you measure your clients for wheelchairs.
The Wheelchair User Safety Guide aims to cover safety and user instructions that are common to all types of manual and powered wheelchairs supplied by the Posture and Mobility Service. For specific information on your wheelchair refer to the Owner’s Manual supplied with your chair, or consult with your therapist who will help you with your individual needs.
These are the types of wheelchair supplied by the service.
