Help and advice

Tilt-in-space can be used for several reasons:

  • For postural management.
  • To change pressure distribution to reduce the risk of pressure areas/ulcers developing.
  • To provide a choice of postures for different activities (but remember that an upright position is more functional and stimulating).
  • To reduce the need for accessories such as harnesses and truck supports.
  • May help respiration and digestion.
  • To reduce the need for regular transfers and moving and handling.
  • To help position your child into the back of the seat when transferring (particularly if a hoist is used).

It is very important that the occupational therapist and/or the physiotherapist working with your child are involved in the choice of buggy. They can advise on positioning to encourage head control and sitting balance, and on buggies that encourage a symmetrical sitting posture.

These specialised buggies may be provided by your child's wheelchair service, depending on their eligibility criteria.
