Recreational Equipment

Getting moving is only the start – sports wheelchairs, trikes and other cool equipment

Once you’ve got the right wheelchair, there’s a whole world of mobility equipment to take you even further. Whether it’s giving you the opportunity to join in with your friends, have a blast playing sports or get out and about over more rugged ground, we can help.

Whizz Kidz provides up to £3300 for a range of non-powered recreational equipment. These include:

  • Trikes – for three-wheeled fun outside with brothers, sisters and friends. They can have postural support added if needed.
  • Sports wheelchairs for playing and participating. From entry-level multisport chairs to custom made sports chairs for basketball, fencing and wheelchair motocross.
  • Equipment to help get over uneven ground outside, in the countryside, across fields and through woods. For example, this might include a set of mountain bike wheels and an additional front wheel to lift the chair's castors and make a manual chair into a 3-wheeler. (Permission would be needed from the wheelchair service for an NHS chair).
  • All-terrain Buggies (please see our buggy section).
