Equipment for Infants and Toddlers

Car Seats




Ready Racer is recommended for children age 18 months to 5 years (approximately 43" 110 cm tall). It has a weight limit 55 lbs. (25 kg). Ready Racer is a pre-wheelchair pediatric mobility aid that combines high-performance wheelchair handling with sports-car styling. It will improve perceptual-motor skills, strengthen the arms and upper trunk and allow the child to play at peer level. Designed for indoor use, the Ready Racer maneuvers in tight places, moves easily over carpet and rough surfaces and requires minimal arm strength.

Zip Zac is the smallest "wheelchair" I have seen. This is from their website: The original ZipZac™ was created in 2010 for a 1-1/2 year boy named Zachary who has Spina Bifida. He has movement in his hips, but is unable to move his legs. I felt the need to make something that would help Zachary be able to move around the house and experience everyday things like most other kids do. With the help of a engineering friend, we came up with a design that was unique and gave Zachary a running shot at his world around him. From the moment we put him in the chair, he quickly figured how to move the wheels and began his new adventures.
