Research done on the original Dutch Wheelchair Check database:”

Research opportunities

By establishing a worldwide database of wheelchair users, we can investigate fascinating research questions and find answers. International collaboration is crucial, so we’re inviting partners to join forces with us.

In the European Seating Symposium in 2024 in Dublin we will give a presentation on the use of the tool and the research possibilities it offers:

  •  ‘A screening tool to empower wheelchair users and clinicians to reduce wheelchair-related health problems’ (presentation)
  • ‘Satisfaction with sitting posture varies between wheelchair users with different diagnoses’ (poster)
