7.10. Prosthetic Appliances and Medical Equipment
The Veteran's prosthetic appliances and medical equipment need to be evaluated on a regular basis and must address health needs and the home situation. Appliances and equipment may also need repair or replacement. Referral to the SCI Center, SCI Support Clinic or SCI PCT for a determination of medical need and a prescription for appliances or equipment is appropriate. Evaluation and specification for prosthetic items must be accomplished by individuals with the relevant clinical and technical knowledge. To help obtain the most appropriate appliances for eligible Veterans, personnel from the SCI Center are to prescribe technological and complex equipment.
