Thanks John for making this part of getting new chair so easy. I love it - it's so whizzy! Going up Lane was much easier.
The chair is a great success for which a very big thank you to you. The carers are managing to sit him correctly and several people have commented on his posture being so much better. I've sent a letter today to TPG thanking them for introducing us to you and to emphasise what a good job you did, so hopefully you'll get more referrals. Thank you again for everything. We'll be in touch if there are any future issues. God bless you, JG
Testimonial for Silver Fern Therapy:
I found John, from Silver Fern therapy, to have an excellent understanding of my needs after I recently had an assessment with him. The process of assessment was detailed, including looking at my posture out of my wheelchair to see where I needed to be supported. I trialled some seating solutions at his suggestion and my seated position was much improved and I think it will make a positive difference to my long-term health and pain levels. John then wrote a very comprehensive report for me with images to help in explanation. I would recommend Silver Fern Therapy to wheelchair users who need an independent opinion to navigate the myriad of options that are available.
I hope that you are well.
I had a call from my client today saying how impressed that he was with you yesterday. He found it really helpful so thanks for that. He wants to recommend you to a friend of his.
Thanks once again

Re: John Fitzpatrick Occupational Therapist, Managing Director, Silver Fern Therapy
John provided eight clinic days for us in 2013-14 whilst we were waiting for therapist vacancies to be filled. His clinical experience and product knowledge meant he was able to start assessing immediately. John assessed an average of six clients on each clinic day and provided comprehensive, written reports on each. I would be happy to use John’s services again and would recommend him to other services.
John also provided some clinical and product training for our team for active wheelchair users. He was able to describe and demonstrate how clinical presentation translates into a technical solution. John demonstrated the various adjustments and prescribing options available on active user wheelchairs and how they affect the function, pressure relief, posture and propulsion for the client.
