Often the need for a wheelchair for a child is urgent and unexpected – Wheelfreedom provide a convenient, quick hire solution for these situations. We stock several models of children’s wheelchairs to suit a variety of needs, and this article covers your options.
Children’s Manual Wheelchair – available in two sizes, to take children between the ages of 2 – 8. Light and folding, it can be easily transported, while large self-propelled wheels and push handles allow the child to manoeuvre themselves or be pushed. This is also available with elevated leg rests (for example if the child has a broken leg) and a reclining backrest if required.
If your child is going to spend longer periods of time in their wheelchair, our Children’s Tilt in Space Wheelchair would be more suitable – with padded seating, and both tilt and recline. This allows for more comfortable prolonged use.
Finally, for those requiring a powered wheelchair, we have a limited supply of the Zippie Salsa M available in paediatric seat sizes.
