Children's Wheelchair Hire

Our freshly designed Children's Wheelchair is an ideal choice of paediatric wheelchair. Bespoke built for us, it is ideal for children between the ages of 2 and 8. Lightweight and foldable, it is easy to transport and store, while large self-propelling wheels make it superb for outdoor use as well as allowing the child the possibility of manoeuvring the wheelchair.

Product Description

Our standard size of Children's Wheelchair has a 13" seat, ideal for children between 4 and 8 years old. For younger children aged 2 - 4 we have a smaller version with a 10" seat - please let us know if you require this instead.

Children over the age of 8 will typically be more comfortable in the narrower size of our Lightweight Foldable Adult Wheelchair, which will give them more space, and additional length for their legs.

If you are unsure which wheelchair will be most suitable for your child, please contact us to discuss the options.


Our model of Children's wheelchair is the Invacare Action3 Junior - a lightweight foldable aluminium frame makes it easy to lift and fit in the back of the car, ideal for transport and storage. Our models are either blue or black.

All our Children's wheelchairs have large self-propelling wheels - these provide a smoother ride when used outdoors compared to the small wheels on transit wheelchairs, while also allowing the child to take part in a broad range of everyday activities by self-propelling if they wish.


Our Children's wheelchair comes with a canvas seat sling as standard, which is suitable for regular everyday use. An additional 2" thick foam cushion can also be hired for extra comfort should the child be spending longer periods of time in the wheelchair, and costs an extra £2 (ex VAT) per week.

If your child needs their leg elevated, we also offer a Children's Elevated Leg Rest Wheelchair, and a Children's Reclining Wheelchair.

Hire Service

We offer a flexible hire service ideal for those that might not know how long they need their equipment for. The minimum hire period is just two weeks, and payment is then taken on a fortnightly rolling basis until you return your equipment.

For peace of mind, the team at Wheelfreedom are never far away. We pioneered the original nationwide wheelchair hire service back in 2007, and continue to provide the only all-inclusive rental service to this day. We have helped out tens of thousands of customers, and our service comes with all of the following as standard, with no hidden charges or extras:

  • Full international insurance - with no excess, and wear and tear covered, giving you peace of mind as you travel.

  • Free next-morning replacement - in case of any problems, to keep you mobile.

  • Flexible hire periods - no need to decide in advance how long you want your equipment for, as we understand needs and recovery periods aren't always certain.

  • Range of sizes available - including different seat widths, to provide a comfortable fit for those of different body sizes and shapes. We don't believe that "one size fits all".

  • Next-morning delivery - just order by 3.30 pm.

  • Bespoke foldable transport box - smart and easy to store.

  • Fully serviced and steam-cleaned - so your wheelchair arrives in the condition you'd expect.
