Wheelchair Service

What We Do

The Liverpool Wheelchair Service is based at Lifehouse.

In Lifehouse we have two spacious clinic rooms; we have the facilities to carry out seating clinics.  The clinics have height adjustable plinths, a mobile hoist, a ceiling hoist, and other manual handling equipment.

We also have warehouse space, which means we can stock a larger variety of wheelchairs, accessories and cushions to enable us to carry out a far more comprehensive assessment.  We are also able to stock standard chairs which means we can issue a wheelchair to a service user following their assessment at clinic and they can take the chair home with them.  We also visit service users at home if they cannot attend a clinic.

We have a pressure mapping system which we can use to accurately assess service users for suitable pressure relieving cushions which will increase client's independence and reduce hospital admissions, and the visual feedback has been beneficial to service users.

This has been a positive move for the Wheelchair Service and we will continue to improve and the develop the service.

We have recently celebrated International Wheelchair Day. Photographs from the event can be seen below.
