    What are transport chairs best for?

    • A.

      Everyday use

    • B.

      Using your feet to scoot around

    • C.

      Short trips

    • D.

      Billing to insurance

    Correct Answer
    C. Short trips
    Explanation
    Transport chairs are best suited for short trips. Unlike traditional wheelchairs, transport chairs are designed for easy maneuverability and are lightweight, making them ideal for quick outings or errands. They are not intended for everyday use or long distances, as they lack the necessary features and support for extended periods of sitting. Additionally, transport chairs may not be suitable for billing to insurance as they are often considered a convenience item rather than a medical necessity.

    What do you measure to determine a wheelchair size for a patient?

    • A.

      Calf circumference

      Weight and shoe size

    Correct Answer
    C. Hip width and weight
    Explanation
    To determine a wheelchair size for a patient, you need to measure their hip width and weight. This is because the hip width will determine the width of the wheelchair seat, ensuring a comfortable fit for the patient. Additionally, the weight of the patient is important to consider in order to determine the appropriate weight capacity of the wheelchair.

    Transport chairs have more cushion than wheelchairs

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Transport chairs do not necessarily have more cushion than wheelchairs. The amount of cushioning in a chair can vary depending on the specific model and brand. Some wheelchairs may have more cushioning than transport chairs, while others may have the same or less cushioning. Therefore, it cannot be generalized that transport chairs always have more cushion than wheelchairs.

    There are only 3 transport chair manufacturers.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because it is stating that there are only 3 transport chair manufacturers, which implies that there are no other manufacturers apart from these three. However, this statement is not supported by any evidence or information, and it is highly unlikely that there are only three manufacturers of transport chairs in the entire industry. Therefore, the correct answer is false, as there are likely more than three transport chair manufacturers.

    You shouldn't sell a cushion with a wheelchair

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Selling a cushion with a wheelchair is not a problem or an issue, so the statement is false. There is no inherent reason why a cushion cannot be sold with a wheelchair. Cushions are often sold as accessories for wheelchairs to provide added comfort and support for the user. Therefore, the statement is incorrect.

    Every wheelchair comes standard with elevated leg rests (ELRs)

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement says that every wheelchair comes standard with elevated leg rests (ELRs), but the answer is false. This means that not every wheelchair has elevated leg rests as a standard feature.

    A wheelchair with an adjustable tension back is a good option for a patient with kyphosis

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A wheelchair with an adjustable tension back is a good option for a patient with kyphosis because it allows for customization and provides support for the curvature of the spine. Kyphosis is a condition characterized by an excessive outward curvature of the upper back, resulting in a hunched or rounded posture. With an adjustable tension back, the wheelchair can be adjusted to provide the necessary support and comfort for the patient, helping to alleviate discomfort and promote proper alignment of the spine.

    What are the 3 main causes of skin breakdown for wheelchair users?

    • A.

      Heat, pressure, moisture

    • B.

      Heat, moisture, and friction

    • C.

      Pressure, compression, heat

    • D.

      Compression, moisture, heat

    Correct Answer
    B. Heat, moisture, and friction
    Explanation
    The 3 main causes of skin breakdown for wheelchair users are heat, moisture, and friction. Heat can contribute to skin irritation and breakdown by increasing sweat production and causing discomfort. Moisture, such as from sweat or incontinence, can soften the skin and make it more susceptible to damage. Friction, caused by rubbing against surfaces or clothing, can lead to skin abrasions and ulcers. These factors combined can create an environment that is conducive to skin breakdown for wheelchair users.

    Medicare will cover a manual wheelchair if the patient can use a cane or walker to ambulate.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Medicare will not cover a manual wheelchair if the patient can use a cane or walker to ambulate. This means that if the patient is able to use a cane or walker for mobility, they do not meet the criteria for Medicare coverage of a manual wheelchair.
