Rehabilitation engineering

In this page

Rehabilitation engineers apply engineering principles and technology in the provision of services to meet the needs of individuals with disabilities.

We work closely with the Oxfordshire Wheelchair Service and the Specialist Disability Service, issuing both standard and custom built equipment.

This equipment includes the following.

  • Custom contoured seating systems for wheelchairs
    Our range includes carved foam and moulded seat inserts.
  • Moulded toilet seats
    For people who are unable to be supported appropriately on standard equipment.
  • Adapted mobile arm supports
    For people with motor neurone disease.

Many unique designs have evolved over the years and development work continues, for instance in the areas of forward lean postures and driving a powered wheelchair using the headrest as a joystick.
