Our ongoing commitment to develop and improve our chairs

With an estimated 10 million children living with disabilities worldwide in need of a wheelchair, the demand for wheelchairs is unequivocal.

But with a huge range of disabilities and varying needs affecting the population—such as cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis, which require purpose-fit wheelchairs—there is no one size fits all approach.

In light of this, Wheelchairs For Kids is working with leading engineers, physio and occupational therapists to continually upgrade and improve our technology, so we can continue changing the lives of the world’s most vulnerable children.

We thank our donors and corporate sponsors, whose generous support enables this to happen.
