Finding a pediatric power chair near you
If your teenager or child has a medical condition that affects his or her mobility, he or she may qualify for a pediatric power chair. Please schedule a face-to-face evaluation with your child’s doctor or therapist. They can perform an evaluation to determine if your child may benefit from a power chair, such as the Edge 3 Stretto.
If your child is prescribed a power chair and a prescription is written, we can refer you to an authorized Quantum provider that can assess your child’s needs. A physical or occupational therapist may work with an Assistive Technology Professional, or ATP, to determine which pediatric power chair best suits his or her needs.
