Check your transportation before getting a halo.

If your child travels in a car safety seat, you will need to make sure that the seat is high and wide enough to support a halo.

If you do not own a seat that is large enough, consider contacting a physical therapist, an occupational therapist or a nurse at your hospital who may be able to either lend you a seat, work with you and a local safety organization to borrow a seat or help you with the proper alternatives, such as a harness.

Consider getting a stroller for your child for traveling in malls or through a large hospital. Strollers should be wide and high enough to support a halo and should also have a firm back.

A wheelchair may be necessary for both inside and outside travel. This will be especially important in the first few weeks after surgery while your patient is regaining strength.
