Mechanical Aids for Cerebral Palsy
If a child develops cerebral palsy, they may require mechanical aids to improve their mobility and quality of life. However, these mechanical aids can prove expensive to purchase and maintain for many families. Additionally, a child learning to use these aids may need the help of a physical therapist to learn how to ably use these aids. This can place a major financial hurdle for many families.
