Help to support the body, sitting in the wheelchair

Hello, I was wondering if you could help me.
I have got cerebral palsy and sit in a wheelchair, I have got a very painful right shoulder from leaning over. I was wondering if there is something to help me to help support my neck.
Thank you!
Elaine Jones

    Hi Elaine
    Have you asked wheelchair services for a solution to your problem

    Ring RMS Ltd, Medway House, 277 Gillingham Rd, Gillingham, Kent, ME7 4QX and ask for a brochure on the Chailey Rollercoaster Head Support.

    It was produced by Chailey Heritage Clinical Services and has very recently gone into production.

    We've used one for years and its a fantastic piece of kit for those with postural support issues.

    As far as I know its not on the web anywhere yet so you will need to call.

    Good luck.

    Just a further thought, my son's wheelchair has been adapted to provide a large thoracic support down his side and a 'wing' which he can lean into - sounds like you might need some bespoke modifications too.
