CTN Equipment Loan Program (ELP), funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation has recently purchased a FreeWheel® wheelchair attachment. The FreeWheel® attaches to the footrest of your manual wheelchair and transforms it into an all-terrain chair. When not in use, the FreeWheel® stores on the back of your chair in seconds. The FreeWheel® can be used with all rigid frame wheelchairs, with a footplate height of 2”-4 ¾ “, standard pneumatic tire and standard footplate.
CTN supports children, youth and families by focusing on CanChild's framework of the F-words for Child Development. Every child with varying abilities has the right to have fun, enjoy friends, function as they are, access fitness, plan for their future and join in family activities like hiking! You can even discover new accessible trails in Ontario here.
