The award winning Madiba2GoBuggy is a rugged off-road posture support buggy specifically designed for children who need more postural support than a traditional wheelchair or stroller can offer, but who will benefit from this new easily transportable design. It is ideal for children, 6 months and up, who cannot self-propel and/or are unable to sit independently.
The unique seating system offers rigid adjustable full body and head support, which can easily fit and accommodate young and growing bodies. In addition to this support, tilt-in-space and backrest recline allow for optimal alignment and postural support during functional activities while also minimising the risk of the development of postural deformities.
A special feature of the Buggy is the rugged, folding base frame, making the Madiba2GoBuggy easy to transport and store.
RIGID FULL BODY POSTURE SUPPORT
The Madiba2Go modular seating system can be fully adjusted in back height, seat length and trunk width, along with back to seat recline of 20°. All these supports are designed to ensure an optimal fit for each individual user, guaranteeing comfort and the best alignment of the body.
A removable height and depth adjustable laptray provides both additional posture support to the user’s upper body and a useful surface for daily activities.
FOLDING BASE FRAME
This foldable rugged steel frame was developed to be stronger than regular urban buggy frames in order to cope with the challenges found in uneven rural terrain. It is also easy to maintain and repair in under resourced areas.
Wide, hard wearing 4 ply pneumatic rubber wheels provide increased stability and comfort to negotiate challenging off road and rough terrain.
SIZES & SPECIFICATIONS
POSTURE SUPPORT FEATURES
PRESSURE CARE SEAT CUSHION
Our buggies are fitted with an adaptable, thick positioning pressure care seat cushion with integrated abduction block. A waterproof cover protects a stable chip foam base and thick high-density foam layer which offer comfort, postural support and skin protection.
PELVIC SIDE SUPPORTS
Rigid supports on either side of the seat can be customised by means of foam inserts, to provide firm pelvis side support and / or to accommodate pelvic deviations. This support crucially helps in establishing overall alignment of the user.
PADDED PELVIC STRAP
An adjustable padded pelvic strap is fitted as standard, helping maintain stability of the pelvis, the correct positioning of the user and preventing shear forces, a common cause of pressure sores amongst wheelchair users.
TRUNK SIDE SUPPORTS
These rigid trunk supports individually adjustable in both width and height provide optimal trunk positioning, reducing the risk of developing postural deviations. These can be further built up to accommodate more complex spinal deviations. Trunk support is very important to help prevent curvature of the spine.
