Five year old Karl has cerebral palsy. Due to his spasticity, his muscles often go into painful cramps and he frequently experiences seizures. This means he cannot sit, walk or move unaided, or play on his own, which he desperately wants to do. Most of all, he cannot be independent.
13 year old Logan suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and requires the use of a power wheelchair at all times.
He is also a huge football fan, current main defender with Tayside Dynamics Powerchair Football Club and has recently been successful in qualifying for the Scottish National Powerchair Football Development Squad.
Illias is 11 years old and was born with both spina bifida and hydrocephalus.
The spina bifida has caused weakness of Illias’ legs and because of this he uses a wheelchair. But regular wheelchair use means that his leg muscles may not be getting enough work which could result in increased muscle weakness and the risk of poor bone development.
