Wheel of Health came recommended to me by a colleague as I had a client with complex and unusual seating and posture needs.
The therapist who assessed my client was professional, reassuring, very clinically skilled and experienced, and focussed on overcoming barriers to provide a solution to my client’s needs. The team still continue to work with my client four years after the first consultation providing a high level of clinical expertise. They have an excellent relationship with the client, his family, the equipment suppliers, including a wheelchair company based in Europe, local therapists and carers.
Most important is that they have improved my client’s comfort and quality of life by finding the correct solution to his wheelchair and seating needs. I highly recommend the team”.
Midshires have been working with Wheel Of Health for several years now in collaboration with our wheelchair and seating specialists which have included difficult and complex seating solutions.
The skilled approach of the clinical team to their clients’ needs and situations, together with a management team’s determined drive to company growth and evolvement provides clients with a truly first class service
