Posture and pressure management: social psychological explanations for compliance with use of clinically prescribed seating functions

The primary aim of this study is to identify the reasons that people give to explain their level of compliance with clinically prescribed seating functions among powered wheelchair users. The study also aims to explain variations in compliance using social psychological principles. Further work will develop an intervention based on psychological principles to increase positive healthcare behaviours for people in wheelchairs.
