Seating and Mobility Equipment for Kids on the Move

The Nemours Children’s wheelchair clinic team gives kids with trouble moving the ability to explore and learn. Our goal is to provide the seating and mobility system that is best for your child.

Our team includes rehabilitation doctors, engineers and therapists who work closely with your child’s medical team. Together we offer personalized, expert evaluations. Your wheelchair vendor is also on-site with us.

We have the latest technologies to give your child comfort and support. We may use pressure mapping with sensors to create the perfect fit. We also assess kids for power wheelchairs, voice- or joystick-operated equipment, and much more.

We teach your child how to use the equipment in different settings so they have the best quality of life at home, school and with friends. We also make recommendations for other devices to help your child learn and communicate better.
