Enabling Technology for Children

Can I have a raincover with my child’s buggy?

Most buggies do not come with a raincover as standard. These can usually be purchased privately or through a children’s charity such as Fastrax.

Can the wheelchair or buggy be used in transport?

Most wheelchairs and buggies provided are crash tested but check with your therapist at the assessment if there is a requirement.

Do you provide the headrest for school transport purposes?

No.

The Education transport department is responsible for this, but a headrest will be provided by ETC for postural support reasons.

What happens when my child grows?

Your child will automatically be invited for review regularly. Should it be necessary to be seen sooner, please contact ETC on 0131 537 9433 to request an assessment appointment.
