PS2.2: Assessment of Seat Elevator User Satisfaction

The purpose of this study was to assess the difference in satisfaction of function while using seat elevators on power wheelchairs among individuals with disabilities through retrospective analysis of two databases that included time 1 and time 2 Functional Mobility Assessment (FMA) scores. Three aspects of the FMA were assessed; #5 (reach), #6 (transfer), and total score.

 

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this session, attendees will be able to;
