What is the Walkways Mobility Program?
CPL's Walkways Mobility Program (WMP) is a clinic for the assessment, trial and prescription of mobility aids for children such as the Hart Walker.
What's a Hart Walker?
The Hart Walker is a customised, orthotic walking frame that allows children with complex physical support needs to learn to stand and walk hands-free. It is designed to grow with each child's size and development.

- Able to stand with support (in equipment such as a standing frame or supported by parents/therapists)
- Demonstrating the ability to take a step while standing and supported
- Motivated to step or walk
