In most things, we recognize the difference between children and adults. Unfortunately, it is not always the case when it comes to providing assistive technology, specialty rehab and special needs equipment. The child who has cerebral palsy or spina bifida does not belong in a shrunken version of the same wheelchair that a post-stroke, Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s patient belongs in.
We know that many people including caregivers, clinicians, and insurance reviewers do not know that there are major differences in the products and configurations of products available for children and those with significant disabilities as a continuing result of conditions of childhood. These individuals have lifelong special needs. This is not a one-size-fits-all or formulary situation. Proper pediatric mobility techniques involves matching the clinical and functional needs of the individual and their caregivers with the appropriate products.
