Whizz-Kidz supports young wheelchair users across the UK just like Matt.
Matt is a 7-year-old who has a real need for speed, with a love of cars and racing.
Matt’s first wheelchair was far too heavy for him to use independently and play with his brother. He needed a wheelchair which was lightweight and powered, not just for mobility, but even more importantly, to help him be the confident, aspirational racer he is!
Thankfully, his family discovered Whizz-Kidz and applied for a wheelchair built specifically for his needs.
Whizz-Kidz was able to give him his new Whizz-Kidz wheelchair just before the UK went into lockdown. When restrictions were eased, he was able to explore difficult terrain, practicing all the tricks he’d been teaching himself, showing them off to his family.
Now, Matt can do wheelies and tricks, and he can race. He loves his wheelchair and he’s on course to become the Formula 1 racing driver he dreams of being when he’s older.
Whether it’s go-karts, swimming or whizzing in his new wheelchair, now nothing can stop Matt from clocking up the trophies.
