CTN’s Equipment Loan Program (ELP), funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation, has recently purchased the 4x4 Polar Ski set. Polar Skis were created by very active parents who wanted to ensure that their child could participate with them with added safety, warmth, and comfort!
Polar Ski sets are compatible with some wheelchairs and walkers, providing mobility and remaining highly adaptive for families to enjoy together. This allows for accessibility to explore the trails, have fun outside and stay healthy during the winter months.
CTN supports kids, 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 bath-time and playing independently!
What are the benefits of the Polar Ski set?
