PS3.3: Outcomes in a Community-Based Wheelchair Seating Clinic

This presentation will focus on practices utilized by a community-based wheelchair seating clinic to pilot test an assessment battery to collect outcomes related to provision of new mobility devices. Short and long term outcomes were tracked through use of an assessment battery that included the Functional Mobility Assessment (FMA) and the Quebec User Evaluation of Satisfaction with assistive Technology (QUEST). Significant changes in FMA and QUEST scores were found from initial visit to follow up.
