What are they doing to this poor child? They're fitting him for a molded seat for his power chair, that's what!! If you remember, our journey with the power chair began in October, when we got his loaner to try out. The paperwork was submitted in December, and was FINALLY approved a few weeks ago (there were some issues with our insurance and then we had to jump through some Medicaid hoops).
On Thursday the wheelchair people came out and got the seat aspect of it going. They sat him on these beanbags and the two PTs wrestled with him to get his spine as straight as possible. Then they sucked the air out, chalked up the form and recorded it in a laptop. It was emailed to the company and we will have a mockup hopefully in 2 weeks. If all goes according to plan, we will have Dakin's chair at the end of July!!
He finally decided he wants a nice cherry red on the frame (Dada says it's a hot rod red :) ).
