Free Powered Wheelchairs for Disabled Children Under 5

Designability new logo.jpg

Wizzybug is a powered wheelchair for young disabled children under 5. It offers children fun, independence and freedom of movement, often for the first time in their lives. Wizzybub is suitable for children aged 14 months to around 5 years (a maximum weight of 20kg) to explore indoors, outdoors and off-road.

Wizzybug helps children with any condition or developmental delay that affects their ability to walk, including those who do not yet have a diagnosis.

Wizzybug Loan Scheme
Designability provides Wizzybugs free of charge to families in the UK. They are fully funded by donations which enables them to be given to young children to use until they outgrow them.
