Waiting for the fund to adjust Muja sitting frame

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

Most of Muja therapies session is on Tuesday this term. But last Tuesday was a special day for Muja. She was the star of that day. The TCCP was doing training for equipment assessment and her occupation therapist asked me if I wanted Muja seating insert and tray to be assessd on that day. I said why not, as that assessment will somehow speed her equipments to be upgraded when she gets enough funding through TCCP. Her insert desperately need to be adjusted and it has been a year of waiting.

We were there between 10 am to 12 noon. There were 3 other with different type of cerebral palsy being the stars for that day. The training was divided into 3 groups, and Muja was in the Early Intervention group. While they made the assessment her OT and physio play with her.

From the assessment they found out that the followings need to be changed:

  • lowering the foot rest
  • adjusting the angle of the head support pad
  • decreasing the wide of the hip support pads
  • new chest support pads
  • new lower back support pad
  • new removeable knee separator
  • adjusting the notch for removeable tray
  • new cushion
  • adjusting the insert frame


They cannot tell when the change will take place, as there is not much fund available for Muja at this time. We have been waiting for one year and still waiting for the fund so that Muja sitting frame can be adjusted. I would like to urge anyone to please give generously to The Center of Cerebral Palsy so that the needs of people with cerebral palsy can be taken care for. Click the link for donation here.
