The Step-by-Step Process of Getting Your Wheelchair


1) Self-Assessment

2) Gather Your Wheelchair Team

3) Get a Prescription and Complete Your Wheelchair Evaluation and Assessment

4) Finding Funding - How you will pay for your Wheelchair

5) Ordering Your Wheelchair

  • Once payment for your wheelchair is approved (through insurance or another source), your supplier orders your wheelchair from a wheelchair manufacturer. The wheelchair manufacturer is the company that actually makes the chair.


6) Equipment Delivery

These steps will be explained in more detail later in the Map. If you would like to keep track of your path through the Mobility Map on paper, download a printable 'Basic Steps to Mobility Checklist' below.
