Great Plains Rehabilitation Services provides assistive technology to individuals whose mobility or ambulatory efforts are impaired. Each individual who requires seating and mobility services is assessed to determine which mobility device, seating apparatus or other specialized adaptive equipment is most appropriate. Our goal is to improve the overall quality of life for those who are physically challenged.
Great Plains offers a complete line of power wheelchairs and scooters. Power mobility is usually recommended when all other forms of ambulatory and manual mobility devices have been considered.
New guidelines set forth by Medicare and other insurance companies, make it imperative that a thorough evaluation be performed when prescribing power mobility equipment. Great Plains offers a seating and mobility clinic to evaluate individuals with wheelchair or power mobility needs.
Pressure mapping provides computerized information measuring pressure while seated in a wheelchair. This information helps determine the most appropriate cushion for an individual as well as educates the wheelchair user and caregivers on how to perform pressure relieving techniques.
Mobility devices used by children are typically able to be modified to meet their ever changing needs. The frames and seating systems on pediatric wheelchairs have adjustments to accommodate growth. These growth adjustments are necessary to extend the useful life of the wheelchair and provide a functional and comfortable fit for the child as he/she grows.
Custom seating solutions are available to meet specific needs. From very basic seat cushions and backs, to custom molded seating systems, Great Plains ensures individuals are fit properly in their equipment.
Manual wheelchairs come in a variety of sizes and weights; from standard weight to ultra-light wheelchairs. An assessment is performed to determine which wheelchair and features are recommended to best meet individual needs. Great Plains has a variety of wheelchairs for trial and simulation purposes to assist with the decision making process. Accessories are available for many of the wheelchairs and power mobility solutions offered at Great Plains.
The seating and mobility specialists at Great Plains have more than 30 years of combined experience in seating and mobility. They are certified in RESNA and NRRTS. Services are available for all ages.
Seating and Mobility Clinics
Individuals who attend the clinic go through a functional assessment and are asked a series of questions related to their specific situation. Family members and caregivers are encouraged to attend. The information gathered from the assessment is used to make recommendations for specific equipment applications.
