Developing prescriptions for seating and mobility systems is a collaborative process. The team comprised of client, therapist, CRT rep need to clearly understand how the assessment findings will impact the equipment selection and service delivery process. In Ontario, accessing funding is an essential step. It is important then, that all team members are aware of their roles and responsibilities to ensure efficiency and accuracy in the funding application process in order to achieve successful positioning and mobility outcomes.
