Head to Toe

Current situation:
The client uses a power wheelchair with a centre mount footboard. He wears the Prevalon heel boots on each foot. A thick padded legrest panel with a leg separator was positioned behind the client’s feet providing support and comfort but it pushes his feet off the footboard so they are at risk of hitting objects.
