Why this website?
As a wheelchair user it is difficult to find objective information about the appropriateness of the sitting and rolling characteristics (and interface) of the wheelchair.
The screening-tool Check your sitting (Check je zit) helps to identify and prevent sitting/rolling-related problems. The report can be downloaded. The screening-report is useful to give insight and helps solving wheelchair problems in your electric or hand rim wheelchair. You can discuss the results with your wheelchair supplier and your occupational or physical therapist.
Take a look at the additional checklists that may help to ensure an optimal wheelchair provision. The short movies with advise from other experienced wheelchair users can be useful, also for recognition of wheelchair-related problems and possible solutions.
At this moment the website is only available in Dutch. Our aim is to translate (parts of) this website and especially the screeningtool in several European languages.
In collaboration with the European Platform of Rehabilitation (EPR) we are looking for European partners to make this dream come true.
