What Families & Children Say...

What can I say - he loves being in it, it has given him a completely new perspective for play and watching. The other children can get closer to him now and he is really integrated into their day too.

We can't thank you all enough for Sophie's new wheelchair, she is so pleased with it! She loves the 'up and down' action which gives her so much more independence.

We were really struggling to travel anywhere as Jessica was so uncomfortable and unhappy, but since we got the new car seat she is muchhappier as she is so well supported. Jessica loves car jouneys now and waves to everyone we pass!
