Cincinnati Children's Hospital offers both wheelchair assessment and training services. A properly fitted wheelchair or seating system can:
A referral from a physician or certified nurse practitioner is needed for the wheelchair evaluation. An occupational therapist (OT) or physical therapist (PT) will perform this evaluation. The therapist will work with the family, and an equipment provider or vendor to help choose seating and equipment that is needed.
The evaluation will include:
Once the evaluation is done, the therapist will work with the vendor to submit information to your insurance. When the equipment has been approved and ordered, a follow up visit will be scheduled. The OT or PT will make sure the equipment fits and provide training as needed.
Getting the most appropriate wheelchair or seating system for your child can be complicated, which is why our staff is here to make your transition as smooth as possible.
We have a reputation for using the latest therapeutic approaches to achieve the best possible outcomes for our patients. Our specialized programs range from aquatic therapy to vestibular rehabilitation.
