Wheelchair and Seating Clinic at Spaulding Outpatient Center for Children Salem
If you or a loved one uses a wheelchair, because of an injury or medical condition, comfort is essential but can often be difficult to find. Fortunately, we can help. A custom wheelchair can ease pressure sores, promote good posture, breathing, and digestion. And better yet, the right chair can give you more independence.
At our Wheelchair and Seating Clinic, we can help both adults and children who need wheelchairs and other adaptive equipment, such as bath seats, car seats, walkers, standers and strollers.
Pressure mapping technology helps us evaluate the source of skin issues and relieve pressure sores. We consider everything you’re going through, from your diagnosis, treatment plan, personal goals, strengths and interests to meet your comfort and mobility needs.
