Who Needs a Complex Rehab Chair?

Most users of complex power wheelchairs have significant mobility deficits due to traumatic injuries, progressive or degenerative neuromuscular diseases, or birth disorders. The appropriate complex power wheelchair can increase function, comfort, stability, and independence.

Individually Configured

Complex power wheelchairs come in a variety of types: front-wheel drive, mid-wheel drive, and
rear-wheel drive bases. They are adaptable for modification in many ways:

  • Width, depth, height, seat angles.
  • Specialty and custom seat and back cushions.
  • Positioning items such as headrests and side and hip supports.
  • Sophisticated powered tilt and/or recline functions.
  • Manual and power elevating legrests and foot platforms.
  • Specialty joystick controls.
  • Alternative drive controls including foot control, head control sip-n-puff.
  • Plus many more.

Assistive Technology Professional (ATP)

At Aeroflow, an Assistive Technology Professional (ATP) is involved in the evaluation process for all complex power wheelchairs. Our ATPs provide Complex Rehab Technology seating evaluations for people with significant postural or mobility defects. Many insurance companies require that a RESNA (Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology Society of North America) certified ATP work with a customer and their clinician to qualify for coverage. At Aeroflow, all of our ATPs are RESNA certified and are trained and educated to select the most suitable product for each customer. During evaluations, ATPs consider a customer’s immediate and anticipated medical and functional needs, including functional mobility, positioning and pressure relief.

Aeroflow Healthcare Can Help You!

If you want a complex power wheelchair also known as a “group 3” power chair you have two options. You can purchase it out of pocket and have it shipped directly to the address of your choice. If this is what you prefer, an ATP will come to your home to do a seating evaluation.

Or, you can get your insurance to help pay for the complex rehab chair. While this option is sometimes slower, it is sure to save you money.
