Find out how a Whizz Kidz clinic works
Our wheelchair clinics are where your needs are met with high-quality mobility equipment, expertly selected and fitted by our dedicated team of therapists and engineers. From the latest manual wheelchairs to powered options, buggies, trikes and add-ons, we’ll keep your child moving and mobile as they grow. With our expertise in the latest developments in mobility technology, we’ll make sure you as parents and carers have the support and advice you need too.
How does a Whizz Kidz clinic work?
- It starts with your child’s application. Get it to us, and a mobility therapist will screen the application to make sure your child meets our criteria, so that we can help you.
- You will then receive an email confirming if the application has been accepted or declined and letting you know approximately how long the waiting list is.
- When funding is available, we will contact you to make an appointment for a telephone assessment with a mobility therapist. This helps us get a picture of your child and their needs and allows us to suggest the equipment that may work well for them.
- Following the phone assessment, the therapist may send you an email with links to appropriate equipment for you to look at. If they have also included any questions, please try to respond as quickly as possible.
- We’ll arrange a clinic date with you. Clinics are usually held for a day every 1-3 months, depending on the area.

When you come to the clinic, you will be assessed and get to try out equipment. Sometimes you will be able to take it home with you right away. For other equipment, it will need to be ordered. If an order is required, you will need to return to the clinic for the equipment to be set up and handed over to you.
