Occupational Therapy assessment & provision of customised mobility equipment

RKS specialises in the assessment and provision of wheelchairs for adults and children. These range from basic occasional use wheelchairs to highly configured, active user or powered wheelchairs. These will help you maximise your independence and get the most out of your mobility equipment.

We also supply a wide range of mobility scooters from lightweight folding transportable scooters to class 3 road legal scooters.

Maximise your independence with the right equipment

Our Occupational Therapists can assess specific seating needs and make relevant recommendations to maintain and improve your posture which can have a positive effect on your function, pressure care and comfort. We can advise on a wide range of cushions, supports and wheelchair backs including Matrx, Jay, Roho, Stealth and BES Healthcare.

RKS staff will guide you through the various options available for your manual or powered wheelchair. Through experience, expertise  and professional assessment we ensure you purchase the most appropriate product to maximise your independence.

NHS Personal Wheelchair Budget

A personal wheelchair budget is a resource available to support people’s choice of wheelchair, either within NHS commissioned services or outside NHS commissioned services. Personal wheelchair budgets enable postural and mobility needs to be included in wider care planning and can support people to access a wider choice of wheelchair. We work closely with NHS wheelchair services to support customers with this.
