Rica national powered wheelchair survey
A national survey launched by Rica, a specialist consumer research charity gives powered wheelchair users and carers living in the UK a chance to tell about their experiences of obtaining and using their powered wheelchair.
The confidential survey - for both adults and children - is being conducted in partnership with Disability Rights UK, Muscular Dystrophy Campaign, Scope, Spinal Injuries Association and Whizz-Kidz. The research has been funded by Motability.
People can tell about their experiences of:
- getting information and advice on choosing a powered wheelchair
- the assessment process
- funding for a powered wheelchair
- maintenance and after-sales service
- any barriers experienced
The aim of the survey is to use the results to identify user priorities for future research work.
The closing date is July 7th 2014.
