BUGGY/Manual wheelchair CLINICS
We hold Buggy/Manual Wheelchair Clinics on site approximately every two months. Two companies attend the Clinic with a range of attendant or self-propelling buggies and wheelchairs, which offer a range of postural support to meet the needs of your child.
Following a discussion with yourself and/or the referring professional, an appointment will be made for your child at the Centre. Before the Assessment is booked it will have to be authorized by an Occupational Therapist to ensure we have the correct equipment for the day of the Assessment. There is no charge for this assessment.
What an assessment consists of?
During the Clinic your child’s postural needs will be assessed in a variety of buggies/wheelchairs by our Paediatric Occupational Therapists. The Therapist will also assess the manual handling issues arising from transferring your child into the buggy or wheelchair.
After an Assessment?
The OT will write a report for you detailing all aspects of the assessment and you will be able to use this to support a charity application if required.
