Ottobock, which predominantly manufacturers high-end powerchairs and prosthetics, has turned its hand to mobility equipment for children with disabilities.

It attended The Baby & Toddler Show this week, which saw around 12,000 families and expectant parents attend.

Ottobock was one of the 130 exhibitors taking part, giving those families with young children with a disability a chance to find out more about its Kimba buggy.

The Kimba is designed to support children with disabilities in a number of ways, with premium suspension to prevent jolts which may cause seizures, padding and support for the back and neck and also supports for the hips and knees.

It also aims to achieve all this while also looking “colourful, stylish and fun”.

It can also be detached from its wheel base and transferred to the Kimba Cross base, allowing for off-road use.

Simon Tempest, head of mobility at Ottobock UK, said: “By having Kimba on display, families with a child who has a disability, and expectant parents who may already know their child will be born with mobility impairment, were able to get all the information they need as they prepare for their new arrival — from what products to use in baby’s bath through to our mobility solutions.”

Clare Barker, group show manager at the Baby & Toddler Show, added: “The Kimba is brilliant and we feel honoured to be able to introduce expectant and new parents to the brand, in an environment where they can see, touch and test the buggies.”
