PowerChair Survey RICA

17/06/2014

Calling all powered wheelchair users – have your say.

A national survey for powered wheelchair users and carers now gives people a chance to tell about their experiences of obtaining and using their powered wheelchair.

The survey is aimed at wheelchair users living in the UK – including both adults and children – and is being conducted by Rica in partnership with the following charities:

·         Disability Rights UK

·         Muscular Dystrophy Campaign

·         Scope

·         Spinal Injuries Association

·         Whizz-Kidz

Powered wheelchair users and carers can tell about their experiences of:

  • getting information and advice on choosing a powered wheelchair
  • the assessment process
  • funding for a powered wheelchair
  • maintenance and after-sales service
  • any barriers experienced

The aim of the survey is to identify user priorities for future research work.

With a chance to win £50 in shopping vouchers, people can complete the survey here: www.rica.org.uk/PWsurvey

People can also request a print copy from us:
Rica, G03 The Wenlock, 50-52 Wharf Road, London N1 7EU or phone Rica on: 020 7427 2460.

The closing date for the survey is June 30th 2014.
