MERU is part of QEF Group and we aim to improve the lives of disabled children, by creating new possibilities. We design and make a wide range of specialist assistive equipment such as the Flexi 3 iPad holder, the Travel chair for air travel and a free loan scheme for Bugzi, our mini-powered wheelchair.
Following an assessment by a paediatric Occupational Therapist, Bugzis are available for the family to take home and use for as long as the child needs it. It is then returned, refurbished and reloaned to another child. Bugzis give young disabled children independent mobility – often for the first time. The Bugzi loan scheme is available nationwide.
We also have a range of switch adapted toys and special needs toys that can provide children with the opportunity to learn and achieve. Our products can provide children with independence and the chance to have fun and make friends. Our vision is to see all disabled young people and their families living life to its full potential.
Bugzi is a mini powered wheelchair that offers young children with mobility challenges the opportunity to move around independently – often for the first time. The controls can be adapted to meet each child’s capabilities and it can be adjusted for height as well. Following an assessment by a paediatric Occupational Therapist, Bugzi is available for the family to take home for as long as the child needs it. It is then returned, refurbished and reloaned to another child.
The Bugzi loan scheme is available nationwide and, thanks to fundraised income, Bugzi can be loaned free of charge to every disabled child that will benefit from it.
