We are here to grow with you

Kids grow and change daily, and our teams are here to help with their ongoing equipment needs.

Our goal is to work with kids and their families to find transformative solutions that make a difference in their lives. With children growing and changing daily, we’ll work with you to find equipment that can adapt and grow along with them. Our caring and knowledgeable pediatric equipment experts can help you navigate the options available to minimize the stress that may come along with finding the perfect equipment – like gait trainers, activity chairs, standers, wheelchairs and more.  

Engaging your care partners

Our team works with your child’s therapist and any other healthcare practitioners. They’ll understand your child’s current and future clinical needs and help translate that into finding the perfect mobility and accessibility solutions.  

They’ll help answer questions like:

  • Does my child have short- or long-term equipment support needs? 
  • How will my child’s condition change as they age/grow? 
  • What types of equipment will best support these changes? 
  • What future events in my child’s life should we plan for?  
  • Are there other healthcare professionals such as orthopedic specialists, neurological specialists, or speech therapists who should be involved in the process of choosing appropriate devices?

Growing with you

Children grow rapidly not only in size but also in the development of their abilities.  That’s why most pediatric devices are made to accommodate various growth stages. The “growability” and adaptability of a product may be what makes or breaks a decision when choosing the best devices for your child.

Understanding activity level

Choosing appropriate pediatric equipment requires an understanding of your child’s current activity level as well as their future development. If your child has sustained an injury that requires rehabilitation, for example, the need for a device that can be modified many times within a very short period will be needed. Other factors such as whether the child attends school and where their school is located can also play a part in the equipment decision. For example, you may require more than one of the same device – one for home and one for school – or need a device that can be easily transported. 

Understanding the caregiving routine

Many pediatric products come with a many adaptations or applications that allow them to be used in a variety of settings. Certain pediatric toileting products, for example, can also be used for bathing – and select activity chairs can help your child play, but also have the ability to be adjusted to table height for meals; acting as a 2-in-1.

With so many innovative products available for kids, the equipment selection process can understandably be overwhelming.  The role of our pediatric equipment experts alongside others in your circle of care will help you make the right choices for you and your child, now and for the future.  Contact us today to learn more about the pediatric equipment options that are available.
