The special education school is for children until 15 years of age. The school has 3 paediatric physiotherapist who are responsible for all the children attending the school. The school has invested in two Innowalk Pro’s to offer the children with server disabilities more activity and to be an additional component in the traditional physiotherapy.
The therapist finds it challenging to mobilize the most severe children and youth enough and it becomes increasingly difficult to manage the children as the grow. Thanks to the Innowalk Pro it is possible to keep mobilizing those children and ensure that they maintain level of functional capacity, despite of size and severity. The device is also an active part of the traditional therapy. When the child has warmed up in the Innowalk Pro the therapist uses the benefits of this to work through the exercise program afterwards.
Children and youth who has been through surgery are a vulnerable group. They are often immobilized for a period and it can be difficult to get them back to the same level of function prior to the surgery. They found the device suitable for these children. The child is well secured in the device, feel safe and the movement added gives a mobilization with weight bearing not possible any other way. This reduces pain, improves circulation, maintain or improve function as well as quality of life.
