„Make sure that the rehab stroller is unable to tip over and is stable even in the supine position. Otherwise, there is a risk that your child tips backwards together with the rehab stroller while he or she is lying down! There are rehab strollers that have a special safety mechanism on the seat that shifts the center of gravity when the child is lying down. Then there is no longer a risk of tipping.“ Christina Steingräber, Orthopedic mechanic
