WIzzybug - FREE Wizzybug powered mobility for the under 5s

Wizzybug is an innovative powered wheelchair provided FREE of charge to young children in the UK by Designability a charity based in Bath.

Wizzybug is designed for physically disabled children. This includes children living with cerebral palsy, spinal muscular atrophy, spina bifida or muscular dystrophy, as well as children with amputations or other conditions that affect their ability to walk.

Wizzybug is intended for pre-school children of minimum age 14 months and a maximum weight of 20 kg.

Wizzybug is an electrically powered wheelchair for indoor and outdoor use, with adult supervision.  Children use Wizzybugs at home and at pre-school, and in outdoor spaces such as parks, gardens and playgrounds.

Wizzybug can be used every day or just occasionally, but is not intended to be used all day, every day.  Through the loan scheme a child can have a Wizzybug for as long as it is suitable for them (usually until they outgrow it) when it is returned to Designability to be refurbished ready for another child to enjoy.
