Positioning-Mobility Program

The Positioning-Mobility Program for Very Complex Problems provides special clinical and technical expertise that serve to conduct analysis of motor impairments, using a holistic and ecosystemic approach. Based on their in-depth assessments, the team recommends aids that meet the children’s overall positioning and mobility needs as well as their expectations.

Their expertise consists of their advanced knowledge and skills concerning:

  • Problems experienced by children who have a severe musculoskeletal disease or condition mainly characterized by a significant deformation of the spine and rib cage;
  • Significant anomalies in muscle tone (hypotonia or spasticity);
  • Different types of available or up-and-coming technology (robotics and domotics), including product features, functions and usability.

When required, the Positioning-Mobility Program works together with the Augmentative and Alternative Communication Program to identify a special access module that will allow the client to develop a certain level of mobility autonomy when using a motorized wheelchair.
When special orthoses are required (mainly spinal and upper limb orthoses), the orthosis area of the Technical Aids Program is also called on for assistance.
