How to access the Innowalk and the Hibbot
When considering one of the Made for Movement assistive devices, there is a general process you should follow.
First, you will need to request for your local Made for Movement product specialist to visit for an assessment for you/your child. We can carry out assessments in home or school/clinic settings, and would always ask you to invite your/your child's physiotherapist to attend an assessment where possible.
The main objectives should be to:
- Figure out how the device can solve the challenges your child or you face
- See how the device works and how it can support you/your child's development
- Discuss your concerns and solutions to specific challenges
Prior to an assessment, our specialists will ask for some relevant background information to establish what size device and accessories you or your child requires.
