All children who have limited mobility and postural issues should be assessed by their local NHS wheelchair service by an occupational therapist or physiotherapist. This will ensure that the most appropriate seating and mobility equipment is recommended to encourage the development of skills and independence. Furthermore, children's growth and changes in body shape and the environment can be considered.
Always remember that wheelchairs need to look good as well as fulfilling your child's mobility and postural needs. And, they should not only meet your child's needs, but should also be compatible with your families' needs and transport arrangements.
