The objective of the Wheelchair Seat Centre is to implement preventive and corrective measures to avoid complications and/or rectify them as far as possible..
An interdisciplinary team consisting of occupational therapists, physiotherapists, orthopaedic technicians and specialists in spinal cord medicine work in the Wheelchair Seating Centre (RSZ). The team is specialised in treating inpatients and outpatients with complex issues relating to wheelchair seats, such as poor posture, scoliosis, asymmetries, pressure sores, and pain. The SPC treatment concept forms the basis for the RSZ. Through our work, we contribute to maintaining the best possible quality of life for patients, on an individualised basis. The objective is to implement inventive and corrective measures to avoid complications and/or to rectify them as far as possible.
If you would like to register for a wheelchair seating assessment with our interdisciplinary team, you will need an occupational therapy and physiotherapy prescription from your doctor. You can then make an appointment with our secretary's office.
The 7th Interprofessional Conference on Sitting and Mobility (ICSM) at the Swiss Paraplegic Centre in Nottwil is dedicated to the topic: The limits and possibilities of wheelchair seating.
It will take place from 18 - 20 April 2024.
