Meeting children's growing needs—both physical and emotional
At Boundless, we specialize in caring for children, and building close relationships with their families and caregivers.
Some of our clients and their families have been with us for 25 or 30 years
It’s an ever-evolving process.
Height and weight will change over the years. But so will a young person’s goals, interests, and perceptions of what they can or can’t do. Someone who was cautious when young may find they want to take on more challenges as they get older. And we’ll be with them every step of the way, helping them take ownership of their device and move beyond their limitations.
Providing orthotic care to a child requires special considerations
The first step is always a referral from the family physician or pedeatrician. Following that, we’ll evaluate your child to determine the correct size and type of brace to be used, and then make a 3-D cast to create it. As with adults, your child will require a series of fittings and adjustments to make sure that the brace is comfortable and functions properly.
That said, children have special needs and considerations. So do their parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, baby sitters—anyone who will need to help the young person on a regular basis, and adapt to their changing needs. To that end, we provide education on everything about how to wear the brace, how to take care of it, and how to take ownership of it.
