When choosing a pediatric wheelchair, first consider whether or not your child will be able to propel themselves in the chair. Pediatric wheelchairs can be modified as your child grows, but it's best to choose the pediatric wheelchair that will suit your child for the longest period of time. If your child will be able to wheel their own chair in a short amount of time (consult your physician), you may want to choose a chair that can be both pushed and wheeled.
