Your child will be able to trial a variety of walkers brought in by the children’s equipment companies for the Clinic. The walkers are designed for children who are therapeutic walkers and for those who are functional walkers.
The Walkers Clinics are arranged following a request from your child’s physiotherapist, and they will attend with you. There is no charge for this assessment.
What an assessment consists of?
Our Occupational Therapist and your Physiotherapist (PT) will assess your child with the appropriate walkers. Some children will trial one walker whilst others may try up to four depending on their clinical needs.
After an Assessment?
Where applicable, your PT submit an application for funding for the prescribed walker. If funding is not available through a statutory organisation a charity application may be required. Our OT and your physiotherapist will be able to provide you with information about the funding process.
