Oxfordshire Wheelchair Service

In this page

Oxfordshire Wheelchair Service is primarily concerned with the supply of wheelchairs and related equipment to Oxfordshire residents with permanent and serious difficulties in walking, some of whom have complex postural problems requiring specialist input.

The majority of our clients are seen by community therapists who are trained to assess various types of manually propelled wheelchairs, accessories and pressure distributing cushions on our behalf. Where more complex requirements are identified, including powered mobility, a request is made for assessment either at OCE, the person's home or another convenient location.

We have a range of demonstration stock including:

  • wheelchairs
  • cushions
  • complex seating for greater postural support.

It is often necessary to adapt equipment to meet individual need. Our Rehabilitation Engineering Department provides assessment, prescription and provision.
