The MOVE Program

The MOVE (Mobility Opportunities Via Education/Experience) Program provides individuals who are non-ambulatory with specialized equipment to improve their mobility skills of sitting, standing, walking, and transitioning — leading to improved health, independence and dignity.

 

The MOVE Program allows participants to safely transition from their wheelchair to a mobile stander to access their environment in a secure and standing position. Engaging with their peers is so much more rewarding for individuals when they can interact at eye level while in an upright and mobile position. With these newly-acquired abilities, participants achieve improved confidence and new opportunities for greater participation and inclusion in their program and community.
