Matt Lowell, MPT

Matt Lowell, MPT, has a master’s degree from the University of Utah in physical therapy.

Matt brings a breadth of experience to Shriners Hospitals for Children. He has taught pediatric physical therapy at the University of Utah and participated in clinical research for spinal muscular atrophy, and worked in the burn trauma intensive care unit. Matt has also provided physical therapy services at the Huntsman Cancer Institute.

In addition to being the director of the wheelchair, seating and mobility program at Shriners Hospitals for Children — Salt Lake City, he does outpatient physical therapy at Wyoming Specialized Physical Therapy.

Since his beginning with the Salt Lake City Shriners Hospital in 1998, Matt has worked as the inpatient coordinator, in amputee training and support groups, founding and directing the Un-Limb-ited teen amputee camps, seating clinician and now the wheelchair and seating director.

What Matt loves about his job is working with the kids and their families. He also highly values the support provided by Shriners Hospitals to develop programs as they are identified for patient needs, which are not available anywhere else.

When Matt’s not working he loves to spend time with his family, friends and dog. He loves taking advantage of the Utah mountains by snowboarding, camping, hiking, hunting and learning more useless movie trivia.
