Bedfordshire & Luton Wheelchair Service

The Wheelchair Service provides the framework to clinically assess and then provide appropriate wheelchairs with associated equipment to clients with a long-term need, (long term defined as 6 months plus) who require a wheelchair for ALL their mobility both indoors and outdoors and who may also have postural and pressure care issues.

Once provision is established, the Wheelchair Service will support the equipment provided and will offer reassessment as required. 

The service works with children over 36 months and adults who have a degenerative long term condition.

The service undertakes individual assessments to identify mobility needs and supply the appropriate equipment. Assessments are completed in our clinic.

In addition the service:

  • Provides bespoke adaptations to wheelchairs either ‘in–house’ or through a rehabilitation engineer.
  • Utilises specialist technicians to assist therapists, check stock in and out, and respond to urgent domiciliary specialist seating.
