The SSE Open ResourceSeries – Seating Tools: Assessment of a Client was created to assist you to correctly assess the needs of clients for mobility and positioning devices. Assessments should be carried out with input from a qualified practitioner – Shonaquip Social Enterprise (SSE) cannot take responsibility for the quality of work carried out using this guide or its accompanying resources.

There are many variations of measurement and client sheets around – this one was developed by Shonaquip in collaboration with DARE consult. It is thorough and easy to use – all of our seating therapists use this form to record client measurements.
CLIENT CONSENT FORM TEMPLATE
Photos are critical to the assessment, prescription and manufacturing process – they are also often required by NGOs or funders for reporting purposes, or to share on Social Media. Make sure your organisation or practice has a well-constructed Consent Form that protects the rights and dignity of the client, their family and yourself – never take photos without consent!
