Some examples of specialised equipment that families obtain include special seating, standing frames, walkers and bath seats. While Plumtree does not provide equipment prescriptions for older children, including wheelchairs and hoists, we can assist you to find someone who does.
The cost depends on the equipment your child needs and the support you require with selecting, ordering, trialling and adapting it
