WhizKid Wheeled Postural Support System

The WhizKid Wheeled Postural Support System combines two great products to create the perfect mobility solution for disabled children (and adults) with postural support needs in low resourced settings. WhizKid attaches the D-Seat, designed by Diversability Development Organization (DDO), to Whirlwind’s acclaimed RoughRider® all-terrain wheelchair, making it easy for children to push themselves, or be pushed, over ground that would be difficult or impossible to traverse in a standard wheelchair. The design is consistent with the World Health Organization Guidelines on the Provision of Manual Wheelchairs in Less-Resourced Settings and perfectly complements the Wheelchair Service Training Packages. The complete WhizKid has been built on a modular format which enables creative customization.
