Pediatric Powered Wheelchair Standing Devices: An Exploratory Study

key information

study id #: NCT05117827

condition: Cerebral Palsy, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Spinal Cord Injuries, Spina Bifida, Development Delay, Genetic Disease

status: Recruiting


For children who use a power wheelchair, a powered wheelchair standing device (PWSD) may be considered for daily use. A PWSD allows a child to electronically move between sitting and standing and can be driven in either position. Existing published PWSD research in pediatrics is limited to boys with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD).(1, 2) While these studies provide some insights into PWSD use in boys with DMD, they do not reflect PWSD use in children with other conditions. The purpose of this exploratory study is to determine the feasibility of a research protocol exploring use of a PWSD in children who have neurodevelopmental conditions other than DMD.
