Pediatric Wheelchair and Equipment Evaluations
Increasing safety, mobility, and independence for your child
DMG CRS offers a pediatric wheelchair clinic in partnership with Numotion during which an experienced DMG CRS physical therapist and a Numotion assistive technology professional will evaluate the needs of the your child and family. You will have the ability to try out multiple wheelchairs onsite, including both power and manual wheelchairs of all sizes.
Custom fittings are done once the wheelchair is ready. Follow-up appointments are available for modifications due to growth, repairs, or changes in medical status requiring new or modified seating.
DMG CRS occupational therapists are certified as passenger safety technicians with specific training in transportation for occupants with special needs. Our team will assess your current car seat to determine if fit and installation follow manufacturer recommendations.
Education is provided on best practices for transportation based on your child’s medical condition and needs. The team will make recommendations for both commercial and adaptive seats, as appropriate. Floor models of adaptive car seats are available to trial with your child and vehicle.
Our team will assist your family in making decisions based on medical necessity, your vehicle, and family needs. We will also assist with fitting, installation and modifications and will provide education.
Temporary splinting fabrication is done at DMG CRS on the same day of the evaluation. Long term splinting needs are also evaluated, and you will be provided with options depending on the medical need of your child. Measurements are completed during the evaluation, and fabrication takes approximately six weeks.
Our team will follow-up to assist with fitting, modifications, and education. This process is essential to ensure immediate proper fitting as well as future fittings to account for growth, changing needs or additional options. Orthosis options include but are not limited to the following:
