Equipment assessment and prescription.
Movement Matters Physiotherapy can assess the need for (and prescribe if necessary) equipment to assist or motivate your baby or child to move. These include:
- jolly jumpers, push carts, walkers and other baby toys
- specialised rehabilitation equipment such as floor chairs, standing frames, walkers, wheelchairs, and specialised seating
- splints, orthotics and shoes
Orthopaedic serial casting and splint making.
If your child needs additional support (for example tight muscles or low muscle tone), Movement Matters Physiotherapy can assess and apply any necessary lower limb casts, and/or construct lightweight thermoplastic splints. They also can assess and advise on other wearable garments (eg theratogs), other splints such as hand splints, orthotics, and appropriate shoes.
Playtime in the park.
Several families meet with a therapist regularly in a local park for a social gathering which includes play and movement opportunities for their children. The majority of these children are not yet walking.
