Inpatient Rehabilitation Technology at Children's Specialized Hospital

The Rehabilitation Technology Program uses a team approach, to conduct a detailed evaluation of the patient with regards to seating, positioning and mobility needs. The team consists of the evaluating therapist, child, family and in-network Durable Medical Equipment Supplier. The specialists in the Rehabilitation Technology Department work with patients currently using or in need of specialized equipment to enhance their strengths and abilities. By creating highly tailored specialized equipment, patients are able to participate to the best of their ability in family, school, community, employment and recreation activities.
