Excel Elise Special Needs Buggy

Product Details

For many years the standard pushchair for an older/larger child was the Maclaren Major Elite. This Excel Elise was designed as an excellent, value-for-money alternative to provide mobility for a child who cannot/will not walk and who is a co-operative occupant.

The Excel Elise is designed specially for the older/larger child who is not able to walk or, more likely, can walk...but either not far enough or reliably in the direction which you want to go.

The Excel Elise covers an age range from about 2 years to 8 years, although suitability is more about size rather than age. This larger model is based on the standard 'umbrella style' folding pushchairs, the Excel Elise is essentially just a larger 'beefed up' version. It has an adjustable footplate which can be positioned at three levels to suit the child's leg length so the pushchair can grow with the child.

The Excel Elise has relatively small 7" wheels which are best suited to smooth urban surfaces, rougher surfaces - a cobbled street or park will prove a challenge especially for the older or heavier child. On the other hand the relatively small 'footprint' of the Excel Elise makes it much more suitable than other pushchairs for use around town, inside shops or other places indoors, e.g. school.

Robustly made with an aluminium frame the Excel Elise is sturdy but still reasonably lightweight. It is tested for a child up to 50kg BUT do not rely on this 'potential' capacity as most children would outgrow it dimensionally (especially in the leg length) before reaching that weight (outgrowing at around 35kg). It would also be difficult to push if fully loaded.

The Excel Elise has a basic One Year Frame Warranty but do be aware that this only covers defects of manufacture not 'wear and tear' - both the warranty and the safe working load may be significantly reduced if the child is not a co-operative occupant.

Whilst the Excel Elise may be used for someone with special needs the seat may be unsuitable if they require postural management support, if in doubt please seek the advice of your physiotherapist.

Accessories are available - please ask.
