Our Wheelchair & Posture Seating Clinic addresses the needs of people with various types of physical disabilities, offering custom-built wheelchair seating systems. Since the program began in the 1980s, we have built tens of thousands of systems for Kansans of all ages throughout the state.

Customized Seating Systems

Designed to enhance comfort, provide better body alignment, and minimize the risk of pressure sores, each seating system we build is unique to its user. Our systems are built by fabrication technicians with decades of experience in the field, overseen by occupational and physical therapists who work with each client one-on-one to make sure every system is built and fits properly. Our wheelchair systems range from simple manual chairs to intricate power chairs with customized controls and devices.

The CPRF Wheelchair & Posture Seating Clinic is one of three clinics recognized by the state to serve children and the only clinic recognized by the state to serve adults.
