Thomas’s Story

12 year old Thomas is a very bright young man who has recently started secondary school. He loves technology and enjoys his Xbox, iPad and playing Minecraft.

Cerebral Palsy affects every person differently, Thomas has Spastic Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy and is unable to sit or walk unaided so he is dependent on his wheelchair which is now 7 years old. 

What he really needed was a new posture controlled seat to go on the base of his powered chair. He has enough strength in his right arm to operate the chair if he can sit comfortably in it. 

So Variety provided the kind of seating system that was not only comfortable for Thomas but could be mounted on his height adjustable Balder power chair. ​
