Wheelchairs

We distribute rough-terrain, locally repairable
wheelchairs in developing countries around the world.
Our trained team personally fits every single chair to
each recipient, making sure that they have the wheelchair
that best suits their body, lifestyle and environment.

Rehabilitation

We have Walkabout rehabilitation centres in India and Kenya, where we offer therapy, education and care to children with mobility disabilities, as well as training for their parents. These centres not only offer children opportunities that they would never have had before, but also work with carers and communities to combat the stigma that is so often attached to disability in these areas.


Research

In 2010, we began investing in studies into reducing and reversing the effects of Spinal Cord Injuries (SCI). Over a decade later, we have funded $1.642 million in SCI research. The discipline has made incredible progress, and leading scientists are hopeful about the prospect of finding a cure in the near future.
