Powered Mobility              
From toddlers to seniors KayMag Occupational Therapy can provide assessment and education to enable safe function when using powered mobility equipment and assist to find the most appropriate powered mobility option.  

This may be a powered wheelchair or a motorised mobility scooter.

An assessment can identify if improved postural support is needed to be better positioned to drive, or if adjusting the program so the speed, acceleration and turning rate are set at a safe controllable level.

If an alternative method of driving  is needed beyond the traditional joystick maybe in the form of head, foot, elbow or a sip and puff control,  we can assist in finding the resources to make this happen.

Even for those unable to independently control a powered wheelchair it could still be the preferred option.  An attendant control can reduce manual handling stress for carers as it eliminates the need to push.
