Manual wheelchairs

Listed here are manual wheelchairs for children, including self propelling and attendant propelled. Wheelchairs with other features are also included, such as wheelchairs with tilt-in-space, a stand-up function and capabilities to accomodate growing children.

It is very important that the occupational therapist and/or the physiotherapist working with your child are involved in the choice of wheelchair. They can advise on which type of propulsion (self propelled, attendant propelled or powered) best suits your child's needs, as well as on positioning: e.g. encouraging head control, sitting balance and a symmetrical sitting posture.
