Jorge Gets a New Quickie Pulse Power Chair!

20141120_164655Jorge needed a power chair to achieve independence while at home and throughout school. He had grown out of his old manual chair and was in need of a new more comfortable, efficient and faster one that would allow him to keep up with his peers. Wheelchairs 4 Kids helped by paying for the out of pocket expenses that the insurance would not cover which allowed Jorge to get a new Quickie Pulse Power chair!

7 year-old Jorge is diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. Jorge has decreased strength and motor control and fatigues quickly when propelling a manual wheelchair.

Jorge is active in the Super Kids Classic. This is a group of disabled children racing soap box derby cars. They zoom down hills and feel exuberant as the wind rushes past their grinning faces. Jorge’s smile is the biggest as he becomes a blur and passes by the other kids! Sometimes Jorge’s hunger requires the need for speed and he zips to get his favorite sweet, Subway cookies. During the slow quiet days at home, Jorge plays the wacky and fun Mario Kart video game.
