Re: need help helping a friend with a SN child. please!

Not that I know of, most parents with this problem custom make their own solution. Why aren't her feet strapped down to her foot rest if she is injuring herself? DS doesn't need his feet to be strapped in but we do strap them down for bus rides and appointments to keep him from kicking other people.

ETA: I stand corrected. I decided to Google it and I did find this. http://www.mobility-aids.com/gel-wra...footrests.html

and this

I guess since I have never seen them and my son attends a school where 50% of the population uses a wheelchair either insurance doesn't normally cover such an expense or they are not available in a pediatric wheelchair size.
