positioning and mobility clinics
The positioning and mobility service provides assessment, review and recommendations for specialized medical equipment that may help your child with their everyday activities. This equipment might include wheelchairs, seating systems, walking trainers, standing devices or other types of medical equipment. Occupational therapists and physiotherapists at the Child Development Centre work with the families and caregivers to ensure that each child seen is provided with the most appropriate positioning and mobility equipment required to meet his/her needs. The Positioning and Mobility Service occurs on an ongoing basis at the Child Development Centre. Positioning and mobility clinics occur two times per year in cooperation with Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children for more complex cases. Funding for medical equipment is available through a variety of government and charitable sources. For further information, contact the Therapy Department.
