For a young wheelchair user, the world can be a place of walls and barriers, where the simplest of freedoms seem unattainable. With a lightweight manual, electric or sports wheelchair, many of those barriers come crashing down, as these children and young people are given the independence they crave.
For a growing child with complex and constantly changing needs, a comfortable wheelchair that fits both their body and their lifestyle can genuinely transform their life.
These are complex and expensive pieces of equipment, and many families face long waiting lists for even a basic wheelchair when they apply through conventional NHS routes. Our team works with families and medical professionals to make sure the right equipment goes where it will make the most difference.
