Collin is a 5 year old boy, youngest of 4 boys, with multiple medical conditions. He has intractable epilepsy, feeding and swallowing disorder which requires him to eat via a g-tube to preserve his respiratory health, he has low muscle tone (hypotonia), ataxia, he wears AFOs (braces to hopefully prevent invasive orthopedic surgery down the road), ADHD, global developmental delay (he’s an 18 month old in a 6 year old body), no safety awareness, urinary retention requiring intermittent catheterization, full incontinence care (he’s not potty trained). I could probably go on but this is depressing me.
Collin is in need of a lighter smaller chair that provides him with the support of his wheelchair. Convaid Rodeo Stroller does that. With the lack of in home nursing care Collin is forced to accompany me on many of my errands to pharmacies (we visit 4 different pharmacies multiple times a month). While it is true that Collin can walk, with our hectic schedule his little body gets drained quickly.
