Wheelchair Skills Program

“Low tech, high impact”

This website deals with the Wheelchair Skills Program (WSP). The WSP includes the Wheelchair Skills Test (WST), the questionnaire version of the WST (WST-Q) and the Wheelchair Skills Training Program (WSTP). It is used to assess and train wheelchair users and/or their caregivers and clinicians.


 The wheelchair skills described and illustrated on this website can be dangerous and result in severe injury if attempted without the assistance of trained personnel.
