the children’s wheelchair

Paediatric Lightweight Wheelchair - RGK Wheelchairs

Billy's mum, Laura

“It used to be annoying for him to have to tell me when he wanted to turn left, and of course when I was pushing him I couldn’t hear half the time! Now I can walk beside him and just have a proper conversation.”

Brooke’s mum, Phillippa
“The chair has been amazing, it has given Brooke so much more independence. She is able to move it so easily due to its lightness and it is so easy to transport for the same reason. So manageable. I would highly recommend it to anyone in need of an amazing quality, lightweight manageable stylish wheelchair.”

The secret to unforgettable childhood memories

You know your child longs to explore, needs their own independence and to ultimately fulfil their potential. Their wheelchair shouldn’t inhibit their love for life or their experiences. The Tiga Junior is here to help. Growth adjustability built in allows for a longevity of the life of the chair, and its lightness frees your child to self-propel or to make pushing them that little bit easier on you. Stop being stuck in their shadow, walk beside them by investing in the tool that encourages them to move forwards literally and figuratively by themselves. Confidence, independence and individuality is everything we want for your child.
