We have designed and now manufacture the UCP Kids wheelchair to meet the needs of the children we serve around the world. As we have grown to serve more children, the need to produce low-cost and locally appropriate products has become a focus of our work. The UCP Kids wheelchair was designed to accommodate children from the ages of 3-14 years old and grow with a child for up to 4 years of average growth. This innovative design allows locally trained wheelchair providers to adapt the wheelchairs to the client’s specific needs, functional ability and size. With one tool, dozens of adjustments can be made allowing for one product to meet the needs of active wheelchair riders and children with complex postural support needs.
While we continue to provide the UCP Kids around the world we are learning more about user needs and making design improvements annually. To learn more about the specifics of the UCP Kids wheelchair take a look at our spec sheet here.
