Designability

Designability is a national charity that design assistive technology for disabled people and those living with a long-term health condition. Our donation of £4,850 will be used to provide a child with a specialised wheelchair called a Wizzybug (pictured). Wizzybug’s are designed for children under the age of 5 living with cerebral palsy, spinal muscular atrophy, spina bifida or muscular dystrophy, as well as children with amputations or a rare developmental delay affecting their ability to walk. Some children use a Wizzybug from as young as 14 months old. They can can be used indoors, at home and at pre-school, and outdoors in accessible areas such as gardens, playgrounds and parks, enabling children to enjoy movement with their ‘first wheels’.
