When it comes to wheelchairs, young children have a different set of needs than adults. Aesthetically, devices designed for kids are often sleek and colorful, and functionally, they are typically lightweight and adjustable. As any parent knows, young people don’t stay the same size for long and since a wheelchair is a major purchase we don’t want a simple growth spurt to render it useless. That’s why our kids wheelchair category offers models that feature seat width and depth adjustability, elevating legrests, and other versatile features. If you’re looking for a safe, affordable mobility solution for the child in your care, you’re in the right place.

When you see a child in a wheelchair what is the first thought that comes to mind? Do you think about the “poor kid” who is “confined” to a wheelchair? Or how it’s tragic that they can’t walk? Or do you steal a glance at the parents and think about how hard it must be for them? Caring for a disabled child can make your daily parenting duties, such as feeding, toilet training and getting them to sleep, more challenging.
Today, Child Wheelchair are technologically advanced and sophisticated enough to allow children, who are unable to walk, a freedom they were never previously able to experience.
The right pediatric wheelchair can allow a variety of positions for your child, including sitting, laying and standing so that the user can move around during the day while still remaining comfortable and functional. The pediatric wheelchair should be a single component in a complete support program designed to serve your child’s needs, strengths and environment.
Cerebral palsy (CP) is a group of conditions caused by medical abnormalities in the development of a fetus or the early life of a child. These lead to damage or delayed development in the brain. The disorder is permanent and, though it does not worsen with age, the level of functionality of a person with cerebral palsy varies widely: in some cases, effects may be very minor, while in others, movement is impaired to the extent that a wheelchair is required. Common complications associated with CP vary by the type of CP disorder but can include vision problems, seizures, learning disabilities, and issues speaking, writing, and performing other tasks related to motor control.

CP Chair is far too big for him, but the grandmother, who is taking care of him is very happy with it, because she does not need to carry him. The chair does not support him enough: not helping to keep his head up, the knees are “falling” side-wards, the arms are turned inwards.
A doctor was doing research on the causes of disability in children. He was meeting a lot of children with Cerebral Palsy and their families. The children were usually lying on a mattress and did not have any assistive devices. The doctors wrote a project proposal for an Embassy in order to be able to provide all these children with special chairs specifically designed for Cerebral Palsy. He was granted the money and had the chairs made by a local carpenter. He then gave the chairs to the families and asked them to have the child sit in the chair because that is much better for the development of the child. After three years the doctor wanted to know what had been the impact of these chairs on the development of the children and their families so he visited all families again. He found that 95% of the chairs were not being used.
