Title The experience of active wheelchair provision and aspects of importance concerning the wheelchair among experienced users in Sweden
Author(s) Krantz, Oskar ; Edberg, Anna-Karin ; Persson, Dennis
Date 2011
English abstract
This qualitative study describes the experience of active ultra lightweight rigid frame wheelchairs (active wheelchairs) provision. Eleven interviews with experienced users showed that the wheelchair should support physical as well as social functioning, but that users experienced injustice and unfairness when negotiating their wheelchair needs and felt insecure within the system. Changes of attitudes and organization are suggested.
