The popular Muscular Dystrophy Campaign publication, Wheelchair Provision for Children and Adults with Muscular Dystrophy and other Neuromuscular Conditions, has been updated for its second edition.

This guide provides helpful information about the needs of both children and adults with a neuromuscular condition. It is aimed to help Wheelchair Service staff plan appropriate wheelchair and seating provision and is a useful source of current best practice for people with a neuromuscular condition, parents carers and other health professionals.

Martin Chainani, Care Advisor at Great Ormond Street Hospital said:

Having the correct wheelchair is essential for independence and a good quality of life, yet so often we come across children in our clinics with poorly provided wheelchairs. This fantastic guide covering provision for both children and adults with a neuromuscular condition, provides information for health professionals seeking a solution to this problem.
