Occupational Therapy Clinics

Wheelchair Seating, Positioning and Mobility Clinic

Wheelchair Seating, Positioning and Mobility Clinic

Sanford Health offers a comprehensive evaluation to determine the seating/positioning and mobility of the physically challenged. Ideally, a wheelchair should not be issued without an evaluation to identify specific needs. 

This technology is used to determine peak pressure on a seated or lying surface. Using a pressure mapping device is helpful with determining pressure reduction solutions such as proper cushions, weight shifting and positioning.


Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis Clinic

Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis Clinic

The Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis Clinic is a unique service to children and families who suffer from JRA. The clinic is offered throughout the year. Our goal is to support your child and family by providing expert evaluation and extensive education and support. 

A combination of blood tests, X-rays and assessment of symptoms can diagnose JRA. Treatment may include medication, therapy and some activity adjustments.

NICU Follow-Up Clinic

NICU Follow-Up Clinic

Graduates of the NICU are often at risk for delays in development. The NICU Follow-up Clinic is designed to monitor your infant's development and to provide you, the parent, with instruction and education.

Your infant is assessed jointly by physical, occupational and speech therapists. Areas assess include gross motor skills, fine motor skills, feeding, sensory processing, pre-language skills and social/interaction skills. The parent(s) are present during the visits so it is also an opportunity for you to receive instructions and additional education related to your infant's development and risks.
