Abstract: In this article, we described the wheelchair bank program at a local hospital and our experiences in managing the service over the past 10 years from 1996 to 2005. This article also reported statistical information related to the acquisitions of wheelchairs and adaptive components, including body support and pressure relief systems. The cost benefit of recycling seating and mobility equipments for use by children with neuromuscular diseases was revealed. With the reference of the reported data, the demands on specific types of wheelchairs and adaptive parts were disclosed to facilitate budget planning of similar services.
