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
· Spinal Injuries Association
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:

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