To get insurance coverage for Pediatric Custom Power Wheelchairs, your insurance provider must determine you have a "medical necessity" for the equipment. This means you must have a condition that requires the equipment to prevent, diagnose, or treat and illness or injury; such as, ruling out ambulating unassisted, using a cane or walker, have insufficient upper body strength to self-propel in a Manual Wheelchair, and that you are unable to maintain postural stability in a power scooter/operate a tiller for scooter. In adittion, patient's are unable to properly weight shift due to a neurological condition, myopathy, or congenital skeletal deformity and requires a multi-power chair base to accomplish daily living activities that otherwise would not be possible in a Group 2 powerchair.
Pediatric power wheelchairs help to give your child maximum independence. Their compact, mid-wheel drive bases allow kids to drive comfortably and securely. Designed specifically for kids, they offer seating with built-in growth, options such as recline and power tilt to improve your child's positioning, and numerous shroud colors and patterns. We offer options for patient's of all needs, and we carry custom powerchairs from Quantum Rehab and Sunrise Medical.
