  • Postural support and harness
  • Removable armrest and swing-away footrest

“Sitting in adult wheelchairs is not only extremely uncomfortable for small children but it is also unsafe. One mother here in Burma was very happy to receive a wheelchair from Wheelchairs for Kids for her daughter. In the past, her daughter used to lay on the floor when they carried her outside. Now, her mother brings her around their village in her individually fitted children’s wheelchair.”
