IF YOU HAVE A CHILD THAT IS DISABLED IN YOUR FAMILY, THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION WITH REGARD TO WAVs WILL SURELY INTEREST YOU.

  • It is very important that a child feels comfortable and safe if travelling in a car. It also is important that they have the essential support in respect of posture to enable them to see what is going on around them and also to have a good look all around. When the driver is accelerating, braking or negotiating corners it is important for them to have good support because of the necessary forces involved in these actions.
  • Seats in some WAVs have padded seats, which will adjust to make sure that it is the right fit and which also adjust to the seat length and height required.
  • A chair that tilts backwards might be a good idea as this helps to maintain the child’s body in a position that is comfortable for them.
  • A footrest may be another good idea to that the child can push against it to help maintain posture.

EQUIPMENT FOR TRAVELLING WITH YOUR CHILD

  • It is necessary to ensure that all your child’s equipment including wheelchair, cycle, toilet seat, walking frame, in addition to any medical kits, will fit with ease into the vehicle.
  • Always make sure that all equipment is securely and safely stored to ensure nothing will move in the event of any sudden stopping or braking.

MEDICAL ISSUES

  • Your journey may well take more time than you thought it would so make sure you plan ahead.
  • If you think your child may have an attack of any sort, make sure they are in a seat where you can see them easily and if there should be a problem you can look after them swiftly.
  • Ensure that any appropriate medical supplies are stored within easy reach if they are needed.
  • In the event of your child suffering from incontinency, washable, removable seat covers are a good idea in the event of an accident.

STANDARD OR EXTRA FEATURES ~ TO MAKE TRAVELLING THAT LITTLE BIT MORE EASIER AND COMFORTABLE YOU MIGHT CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING:

  • In addition to seats that adjust in the front of the WAV, consider adjustable back seats.
  • If there is enough room, pockets for storage on the doors and seats are a good idea.
  • Tinted windows would be a good idea if you require privacy.
  • To entertain your child on a journey that may be quite long, a player for DVDs is a good idea as this can be fitted to the headrest of the seat in front. You would have to ensure that there are appropriate power points within reach.
