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.
The elevating leg rest is fully adjustable, and can be set to your desired angle to provide the optimum comfort and support. For the standard 13" size of wheelchair, we can supply an elevated leg rest on either the left side, right side or both.
For the smaller 10" size of wheelchair, both leg rests will elevate together.
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 also needs to recline their backrest, please see our Children's Reclining Wheelchair.
