UNLIMIT-ED in the Community

UNLIMIT-ED in the Community

The ability to access and engage with the local and broader community is important to a person’s sense of self and belonging. Our community-based Occupational Therapy services are aimed at assisting people with injury and illness to overcome the obstacles that prevent UNLIMIT-ED access to the places that are important to them.

Mobility Scooter Assessments

When driving is no longer an option, our mobility scooter assessment and prescription service aims to help people access their local community safely and independently. With extensive knowledge of mobility scooter options, our specialist team can recommend a mobility scooter that is suitable for your assessed goals and environment.

 

Mobility scooter assessments involve:

  • Assessment of a user’s capacity to safely control a scooter
  • Education on scooter storage, maintenance and insurance

Wheelchair Assessments

Our wheelchair assessment and prescription service aims to provide professional advice and direction on manual wheelchair and seating solutions that are appropriate to specific injury needs. With a focus on ensuring that your wheelchair allows you to access the different places you go, and perform the roles that are important to you, our team works closely with wheelchair suppliers and support services to achieve your wheelchair, pressure relief and postural care goals.

 

Wheelchair assessments involve understanding your:

  • Wheelchair goals and history
  • Support network
  • Pressure care/postural support needs
  • Home and community environments including terrain, access, turning space and storage
  • Transport use and requirements
