Below are some details about the TAOS and steps you can take to obtain one.
United State candidates:
Unlike other equipment, the TAOS is a custom orthosis that works together with a mobile base to achieve proper alignment in a weight bearing, upright, hands free safe environment. Being that the TAOS is a custom orthosis at its core, it is fit and billed by an orthotist using standard billing codes. In the United States, this means that it is covered 100% by Medicaid and most major insurance carriers with little to no out-of-pocket cost to the family. This also does not hamper the family’s ability to obtain other types of equipment they family may need. We like to think of the TAOS as just another tool for the families to use with their kiddo instead of always using the wheelchair or stroller for school, outdoor activities, mall or trip to the grocery store. As the TAOS makes a great ‘walker’ it also makes an awesome stander. The rear wheels lock and the mast portion can be swiveled to the side so the child can get right up to a counter top, dry erase board, deck, table etc….
If you currently have an orthotist that you use for your child’s braces, then contact us! It may possible for that orthotist (or similar) to be certified with our web-based (internet) course. If you do not have an orthotist please contact us for options.
If you are interested in obtaining a TAOS contact us so we can discuss 1 or 3 options;
Locate the closest TAOS provider.
Discuss potential training of your current medical provider or physio-therapist
We have also had families from outside the US travel directly to Miami Florida where we are located as we have providers in this area.
