Online Course:

Regardless of an individual’s physical or cognitive disabilities having the opportunity to be mobile is important. Due to a variety of reasons, many pediatric clients we serve require some level of assistance or are completely dependent for mobility. With that said, selecting a mobility base designed for dependent mobility involves finding a balance between what is clinically most appropriate and what the caregivers believe will work best in the client’s everyday life may be difficult. During this webinar we will explore a variety of dependent mobility bases designed for pediatric clients and the clinical applications of each.
