Wheelchair & Posture Seating Clinic
CPRF is taking extra precaution during this time to ensure the health and safety of our staff and those we serve. Clients and families will be asked a series of screening questions and have their temperature taken before being escorted by a staff member to their designated room. In accordance with the state mandate, please wear a face mask when visiting any CPRF building. Staff members are also screened, including temperature readings, upon arriving to work. OTs and PTs work in close proximity to clients by nature, so all staff will wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) when in the same space as clients. All rooms and surfaces are thoroughly sanitized after each use. We thank you for accommodating these added measures.
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.
Clients must have significant mobility limitation and possess a doctor’s (MD/PA/APRN/DO) prescription. There is no income-limiting factor, but clients 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 are one of three Medicaid-approved seating clinics in Kansas.
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.
