Innovative Solutions for Each Child
After evaluating each patient as a team, we determine which form of technology will best meet his specific needs. As the patient grows, we stay connected with him and aid in adjusting his equipment.
We bring our expertise to the patient by teaming up with community therapists, rehab technology suppliers and various other specialties across the entire Children's system.
If the patient has a unique need that requires additional support, our team comes together to find a solution that works for both him and his family. This includes connecting patients and families with vendors and funding to help them get the resources and equipment they need.
