Wheelchair & Posture Seating Clinic
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.
Patients must have significant mobility limitation and possess a doctor’s (MD/PA/APRN) prescription. There is no income-limiting factor, but patients or their family are responsible for any co-insurance or deductibles.
Referrals for services come from the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services, as well as physicians, physical therapists, insurance companies, and associating agencies such as Rainbows United, KETCH, and many others. We work with a variety of insurance companies, including Medicare and Medicaid.
We work with individuals who need financial assistance through our Equipment Fund. We partner with many United Way agencies and other sources throughout the state to secure funding.
