This survey of patient members of an online health community who use power wheelchairs suggests that OTs may better meet patient functional and social needs during power wheelchair assessment by discussing power wheelchair features that are available but may not be covered by insurance, as well as recommendations for avoiding complications. While most respondents felt their medical needs were assessed, few patients felt their social needs are being discussed in assessments.
