The prescribed wheelchair has to meet the physical and functional requirements of each individual wheelchair user and has to be delivered together with an appropriate training of the adult or child wheelchair user, as well as of the adult caregiver, for correct usage and maximum degree of independence of the wheelchair user. Lack of special fittings and of professional assessment, prescription and training services can lead to the development of side effects in wheelchair users, including permanent postural deformations and severe medical complications.
