However, far more important in choosing the right pediatric power wheelchair for your child is how well it serves your child's needs. The wheelchair should be a single component in a complete support program designed to serve your child's needs, strengths and environment.
It's extremely important to resist this instinct and to preserve a very neutral position of the lower back. At first it will feel surprisingly unnatural. However, as you bring your focus to your back you'll start to be aware in a kinesthetic way why it makes sense. At first it will take great effort to keep this neutral alignment. But with time you'll being to feel increasingly comfortable with the feeling of this position and it will start to be much more natural for you to maintain.
Mobility Some patients stay in their chairs more than others. This increases the necessity of ramps in the home and at the entrances. These can be ordered from home medical equipment suppliers to make coming and going much easier. Without ramps, patients may be forced to stay indoors, be carried or chance a risky trip down the stairs by hopping on one foot or stepping on unsteady feet. Transferring to and from a sitting position to the wheelchair can be accomplished with the help of a wheel that helps the patient pivot from facing one direction to another. Another option is the transfer board, frequently used by medical staff and homecare givers.
