The Power of Pediatric Power Wheelchairs

The Power of Pediatric Power Wheelchairs

Power wheel chairs (PWC) help create independence for many people who are having trouble with mobility, but are especially helpful in creating independence for children in school. It is important to assist in the development and independence of a child with mobility limitations.

A PWC will encourage playing, socializing, and learning and prevent the child from being excluded from field trips or classroom assignments. One extra benefit of using a PWC is that it increases spatial reasoning.  Allowing the child to go to school and to be mobile in their PWC also helps the child learn a sense of self reliance and confidence.  Most children yearn for a sense of normalcy and for a child with mobility limitations their desire for this may be increased.

When children with mobility limitations are allowed the freedom of independence a PWC can offer, they are able to interact in peer groups, experience situations without the assistance of their parents or guardians. The more routine, regular, and accessible a child’s school life can be, the more independence they will have; it is with a PWC that these needs can be met for a child with mobility limitations.
