Wizzybug Loan SchemeThe Wizzybug is a fun first experience of powered mobility for children aged 18 months to five years
Wizzybug can be easily adjusted to meet a child’s individual postural needs and can be driven using a joystick or switches. It can be used indoors at home and in nursery and outdoors in accessible areas such as level gardens, playgrounds and parks. It also dismantles so that it can be transported in a small family car to take to the park, nursery, shops or grandparents’ home.
Through the loan scheme, families receive a Wizzybug to use for as long as the child can benefit. Parents are asked to pay a security deposit of £200.00, which is refunded when their Wizzybug is returned in an acceptable condition at the end of the loan period.
Application forms need to be completed by the child’s therapist and are available from Designability on 01225 824103 or from firstname.lastname@example.org
