The Next Big Step


Who

Your supplier will order your wheelchair.

How

The wheelchair supplier will fill out an order form (usually during the evaluation with you and the therapist) from the wheelchair manufacturer (ex: Quickie, Invacare, Pride Mobility, Permobil, Colours, TiLite). There are boxes to check on that form that relate to each part of your wheelchair.

When

Once payment for your wheelchair is approved, your order can be placed.

Where

Your wheelchair will be ordered directly from the manufacturer, the company that actually makes the chair. The manufacturer ships the chair to your supplier.  Your wheelchair may have parts on it from other companies (like a headrest, cushion or seatbelt). Your supplier will put the chair together per the specifications you and your wheelchair team agreed upon.
