Wheelchair evaluation

If you require the use of a wheelchair, finding the device that provides for your highest level of mobility as well as your safety is essential. A specialist is needed to perform a thorough evaluation to ensure the wheelchair meets all of your needs.

At the UF Health Occupational Therapy department in Jacksonville, an assistive technology practitioner who specializes in wheelchair fitting and adaptations will ensure the best possible fit for you. This specialist works with patients, their families and local equipment company representatives to determine the most appropriate and clinically necessary mobility equipment. These assistive technology assessments are offered for both adult and pediatric patients.
