In the same way that baby walkers can help to encourage babies to ‘find their feet’, Gad About helps older children to get mobile whilst strengthening leg muscles.
The wide diameter of the secure tubular steel frame ensures weight is evenly distributed meaning users feel more independent without compromising their safety. And a wipe-clean, weather-proof saddle means the walker can be used outdoors if required - enabling less mobile children to enjoy time in the fresh air. Suitable for inside leg measurements from 17" to 26", for children weighing up to 22kg.

Learning how to walk takes place in a series of predefined steps. Children must be able to balance and their muscles must be strong enough to support their body weight.
Hypotonia, also known as low muscle tone, can be a symptom of a number of conditions including Down’s Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy and Autism, and can make learning to walk more difficult as the muscles are often quite floppy.
Gad About can help to strengthen leg muscles through regular exercise and also improves balance by providing a secure framework (literally) for children to practice walking.
More details about Hypotonia can be found by visiting the NHS Choices website.
It is well documented that increased independent mobility brings a number of emotional and health benefits to people of all ages. Gad About helps to get less able children moving, building self-confidence as well as muscle strength.
