The equipment clinic is run by SDN’s team of physiotherapists and occupational therapists.
The team assess your child’s needs and will then prescribe equipment to support them in their daily living activities. Items that may be prescribed include:
- Equipment for mobility, such as wheelchairs, walking frames and strollers
- Equipment for daily living activities, such as shower chairs, bathing equipment, ramps, hoists and slings, specialised beds and mattresses
- Equipment for positioning, such as standing frames, seating systems
Because our physiotherapists and occupational therapists also work as keyworkers as part of a transdisciplinary team, they have access to the expertise of our team of occupational therapists, speech pathologists, psychologist, social workers and early childhood specialists should you child ever need it.
