Thanks to a generous donation from the Scribante Group* and the team at Freedom Walkers**, we received these 2 beautiful paediatric walkers this term.
Our therapists absolutely love how robust but lightweight this design is. The walker is incredibly easy to turn, can navigate easily around objects and can be adjusted in multiply ways to provide different levels of support. We have enjoyed playing around with these walkers for children with varying support needs.
It works beautifully in gait training for children who can almost walk independently. For those children who have only a little bit of lower limb function, we love strapping them in getting what active movement they have and giving them a feeling of moving over their legs.
For a some of our children, like Sinegugu, the Freedom walker has allowed them their very first experience of walking. They have been bursting with joy and delight.
Freedom walkers provide a whole range of products which we are excited to try with our kiddies.
We would love to be able to gift some of these children with devices to use at home. If you would like to contribute towards helping a child experience the joy of walking please donate.
