Children that are required to travel in their wheelchair should be provided with adequate transport. The National Wheelchair Passport Scheme can provide more information about compatible wheelchairs and vehicles. Not all wheelchairs are suitable to be clamped into a tracking system. It is essential that the correct risk assessment is carried out to establish which wheelchairs are compatible with vehicles and tracking systems. The staff that are loading and unloading wheelchairs in and out of vehicles and using tracking systems and restraints need to be properly trained to use this equipment including the operation of ramps and tail lifts. Emergency procedures should be in place for any unforeseen incidents.
