Your team

​Who are we?The right seating can make a huge difference

Your team is made up of a group of people with different specialties that include physiotherapists, occupational therapists, seating technologists, rehabilitation technologists, and an engineer.

What do we do?

We:
  • assess your child (aged 0 - 19 years) 
  • provide customized equipment such as special seating, wheelchairs, walkers, bath equipment, car seats, strollers, and more
  • work with you, your child, and your community professionals to plan the best solution for your child
  • provide services either at Sunny Hill or on outreach, when we go to your home community instead of you coming to Sunny Hill
Your appointment

Please arrive at least 15 minutes ahead of your appointment time and check in with our receptionist at the main entrance on Slocan street.
