When and why should a child with disabilities benefit from a wheelchair instead of their buggy?
The wish of many disabled people, including children from the early stages of their development, is not to be considered disabled! As this is only possible in rare cases, the second wish living a life as close as possible to ‘normal’ conditions. This means the ability through early development to adapt independently and organise one’s life autonomously for their future quality of life.
The priority is the adaptable equipment and adjustment options that grow and change as the user’s needs change whilst in their early stages of growth to enable the experience of the inclusion of people with disabilities around people who are not considered disabled, from as early as 12-18 months of age, this is valid for all ages and stages of development. Many children with disabilities benefit from moving from a buggy to a wheelchair that compensates for, and in many cases, prevents the increase of disability deficits due to lack of independence, and poor postural support, from a far earlier age than most parents would consider.
The proper early stages first wheelchair for your children can be as easily pushed by an assistant as they can in a buggy, but the wheelchair is built for your child’s disabilities. In contrast, a buggy, even one prescribed for disabilities, can only be adapted to a limit. Your child with their disability can quickly outgrow the demands of a buggy far earlier in their development than when they physically outgrow the buggy.
Why is the Sorg Jump Alpha suitable as your child’s first wheelchair?
The Jump Alpha is not only a substitute for missing or impaired legs but (in the true sense) an aid for an independent, active and improved quality of life. Without this, the right to inclusion just could not be lived by every individual. Jump Alpha adapts to the individual’s ideal position, including the shoulder to the rear wheel. It is easily adjustable and can be changed according to the user’s development. This results in a positive balance, confidence and everyday use in the long term. The users can build up their strength with the Jump, as it does not overstrain due to its smoothness, achieving motivation for the regular use of the wheelchair.
The jump can be used from early childhood. Through the mobilisation of Jump, its small and weak users can experience the sensory perception that they undoubtfully need for their physiological and psychological development to be as close as possible to ‘normal’ conditions.
Due to its wide range of sizes, Jump Alpha is suitable for a long-term therapy concept. Thus, Jump Alpha is indicated – amongst others – for the following impairments:
- (infantile) Cerebral Palsy
- Spina Bifida
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Myasthenia (atrophy or dystrophy)
- Rheumatic Diseases
Your child’s disability and early development should be appropriately supported with a made-to-measure prescription wheelchair because:
- Preservation, formation and reinforcement of the complete muscular tone
- Protection, formation and reinforcement of (auto-)mobility
- Stabilisation and straightening of the trunk (positioning)
- Skeletal stabilisation and strengthening of the spine
- Formation and extension of the sensory perception
- Stimulation and stabilisation of metabolism and circulation
- Participation in the social surroundings (inclusion)
