We understand what a big decision a wheelchair can be. Our team of experts is here to listen and help you get the right equipment the first time.
While a therapy assessment is required by most insurances to obtain a manual wheelchair, power wheelchair, or scooter, our team goes beyond insurance requirements to focus on you and your unique goals. We’ll follow these steps to get you what you need:
First, your physician will need to write a prescription for “PT/OT Evaluate and Treat for wheelchair/assistive technology assessment.” Please have their office fax it to Life Wheels On at
You will choose a supplier, the company that orders the wheelchair, if you have not done so already. A representative from the company (ATP) will work with you and your Life Wheels On therapist to understand your needs.
After working with Life Wheels On, patients noted significant improvements in their ability to get around their homes and communities, along with greater comfort and ease with their devices.
The Patient Specific Functional Scale (PSFS) is used to assess our patient’s mobility in the home, in the community, and other features of clinical importance. Greater than or equal to 2 points is the minimal detectable change (MDC) for the PSFS. Our results for both in home and community mobility exceed the 2 point MDC.
The Functional Mobility Assessment (FMA) is a 10 item self reported scale, with a scoring of 1-6 for each item, totals range from 10-60. Our results with a 27.2 point increase exceed the 18 point MDC (minimum detectable change) for the FMA scale.
