Wheelchair Skills Day

Published on

On Friday we hosted a Back Up Trust Wheelchair Skills Day. Clients and a couple of our physiotherapists learnt wheelchair skills, such as the basics of getting the most out of your chair, conserving energy and hygiene. We then moved on to the more advanced skills of back wheel balance, castor flicking, ramps, floor to chair and even descending stairs.

We now have two of our physiotherapists who will be able to pass on these newly learnt skills to clients who need to brush up on their skills or learn new ones.

I have finished the Back Up Course held at PhysioFunction today and it was really good. I feel a lot better in my wheelchair now and more in control.
