The Miko Buggy is the latest wheelbase buggy from Specialised Orthotic Services, known as SOS.
This innovative and modern design has been developed by leading seating specialists, SOS, to give an up-to-the-minute look for fashion-conscious parents and carers of young disabled children. It is available in a range of colours so it can complement the child’s seat making it look more like an infant’s buggy and less like a piece of equipment.
Made of aluminium it is both robust and it is easy to handle and manoeuvre. In addition it has front swivel castor wheels and rugged rear wheels and an easy braking system for safe parking.
It has also been designed to be effortlessly folded so it can fit into the boot of most family cars or stored discreetly in the family home. An automatic locking system kicks into action for added safety when the Miko is unfolded so there’s no chance of it folding in on itself.
In addition SOS’ Tilt in Space function means the seat can recline up to 30 degrees back so the child can be in optimum comfort.
Families that wish to use the Miko for transportation can do so as it has been crash-tested to provide optimum safety so it can be used with confidence in adapted vehicles.
Available in two sizes 16” and 18” the Miko can cater for the needs of children from the age of 12 months upwards and has been constructed so it can be used with a wide range of special seating equipment.
There are a wide range of accessories available including a sun shade, rain cover and net carrier.
Tracy Minor, sales & marketing manager of SOS, explains: “We have taken a long hard look at the available buggy designs for parents and carers of young disabled children as well as ask them what they would like in their ideal wheelbase. Overwhelmingly the feedback is that parents want a buggy which looks like those found on most high streets. They want a slick design, which is easy to use and has all the safety equipment and design you would expect from SOS. We feel the Miko Buggy offers all this and more. We’re really excited about this design and look forward to getting feedback on how it really makes a difference to those with disabled children.”
SOS also has a range of Mojo wheelbases which cater for infants through to adults. For more information on the Miko or other SOS equipment in the range call: 01283 812860, email [email protected] or log onto www.specialisedorthoticservices.co.uk
