Description
A soft plastic handle to install on the wheelchair frame. The handle was designed to install on a stroller/pushchair so an older sibling can hold the handle when the parent is pushing the pram/carriage.

Model: Walk-Along Stroller Handle from the company Skip Hop

Users comments
The handle was used extensively and was very good to get the child to keep up at a normal pace. The child appreciated having a fixed point to hold onto on the wheelchair. However, the user felt the handle was a bit too short so the child was too close to the wheelchair. The child was 3.5 years old when the handle was used, but it would probably have worked well for toddlers from 18 months.
