Lucia, postural care and her first wheelchair

Last Friday Sammie and I had the pleasure of visiting 4 year old Lucia in her home. Lucia and Roxana, her mother, sat in the front row at the Yancana Huasy conference last week. The very next day we were met with warm hospitality by her mother, Roxana, who loves to sew and is very skilled. We admired the hand sewn sleep system she had created and it was great to hear that she has seen improvement in her Lucia’s body shape since beginning postural care.

Lucia is content when supported in the sleep system her mother made for her.

All that was missing was a wheelchair and today was the big day for Lucia to receive her first wheelchair! She has been using strollers that her family adapted for her. Now she will be using her new wheelchair to go to school! She will be able to lie and sit in  healthy posture, 24 hours per day.
