Wheelchair prescription is a highly involved process that is unique to each individual. There are many aspects to consider when making a prescription, ranging from environmental needs to the physical needs of the patient. This report, prepared for the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability, takes an in depth look at the current prescription process. We examine ways in which the RHNd can make the prescription process more standardised and efficient, and explore how an expert system could be beneficial.
