Helping the user adjust to their new way of living

SCI rehabilitation is an ongoing process. Home aids and modifications are among the most important environmental barriers for patients with spinal cord injury. Specially designed equipment tailored to the patient help to elevate a sense of independence and self-confidence.

SCI rehabilitation is an ongoing process. Home aids and modifications are among the most important environmental barriers for patients with spinal cord injury. Specially designed equipment tailored to the patient help to elevate a sense of independence and self-confidence.

Equipment can also provide protection against injury, protection for the skin, provide postural support and help to prevent injury to the caregiver.

Wealden Rehab has worked with Occupational Therapists and carers over many years and accustomed to accommodating end users with equipment to help with their daily challenges.

Each patient will require a different level of support and home care equipment needs. We hope these resources help with their rehabilitation journey.

Discover our resources on reducing pressure points

Spinal cord injured patients have a high risk of developing pressure ulcers due to motor and sensory impairments, immobility, changes in skin composition, and prolonged hospital stays. It’s important to be able to manage the pressure areas to avoid re-hospitalisation, increased care needs and a decline in the patient’s wellbeing and health.

We've selected these articles to help you find out more about the concerns with pressure injuries and how shower commode chairs can help manage the condition.
