Cornwall Mobility is holding an Open Day followed by a formal reception for key stakeholders to celebrate 20 years on the Royal Cornwall Hospital campus at Treliske.
On show at the Open Day will be some novel products and services being brought to Cornwall for the first time. One of these, Bugzi, will be coming soon to Cornwall as a FREE loan scheme. Bugzi is a powered wheelchair designed to aid the mobility of children up to the age of 5 years old.
This stunning piece of equipment is a powered wheelchair specially designed for children who are diagnosed with a medical condition which affects their physical mobility. Bugzi is a safe and manoeuvrable chair that enables children to experience independent mobility during their early development. It allows them to develop their physical co-ordination and spatial awareness as they explore their world.
Bugzi was developed by MERU, who design and manufacture mobility equipment for young children with disabilities. It will be on show, and demonstrated, at Cornwall Mobility’s Open Day on Thursday 18th September, where you can see a large range of assistive technology which can aid the mobility of people of all ages.
Stakeholders attending the formal celebration will include the Lord-Lieutenant of Cornwall Colonel Edward Bolitho OBE, Lord St Levan who is the President of Cornwall Mobility, Professor Colin Roberts who is Chairman, Matthew Campbell Hill the Paralympic fencer who is a Board member, Edward Trewhella the CEO, as well as Mrs Jeannie Nicholls MBE who was one of the original founders of the charity, and Sarah Newton MP for Truro and Falmouth.
