Assisting Clinicians to Choose a Special Needs Stroller or Manual Wheelchair: A Sunny Hill Tele-CDR presentation: June 25, 2015, by Elaine Antoniuk, BSc PT and Beth Ott, MSc, BSc PT; Positioning & Mobility Team (PMT).

Many infants can be transported safely in a regular stroller for the first several months of life. However, a special needs mobility base will be required for infants who need more postural support than the typical stroller can provide or for toddlers who outgrow their stroller and/or who need additional postural support.

Making a decision about the first special needs mobility base is often difficult for parents and clinicians. In order to make the process as thorough and objective as possible, therapists at Sunny Hill have developed a Priority Check List for clinicians & parents.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify 5 priorities therapists use for mobility base prescription
  • Identify the common priorities families have for choosing a mobility base
  • Become familiar with Priority Inventory List Tool
