Magic Wheelchair

MagicWheelchair.org

Magic Wheelchair is a nonprofit organization that builds custom costumes for children in wheelchairs. Our goal is to put a smile on the face of every child in a wheelchair.

Ryan and Lana Weimer, the founders of Magic Wheelchair, have five children, three of whom were born with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, which requires the use of wheelchairs for the entirety of their lives.

Each Halloween, Ryan made the biggest, “baddest” costumes he could for his sons, Keaton and Bryce. Once news of these costumes spread, Ryan began receiving requests from parents around the world asking if he would transform their kids’ wheelchairs into “magic”.

FreeWheel Wheelchair Attachment

goFreeWheel.com

FreeWheel = Mobility. Independence. Freedom.

Whether you have a rigid frame or a FOLDING wheelchair, the FreeWheel is your ticket to Freedom, Independence, and increased Mobility.

With the FreeWheel your wheelchair casters are lifted off the ground, turning your chair into a 3-wheeler, so you simply roll over any obstacle: curbs, dirt trails, grass, gravel, snow, and sand. No more wasting energy and slowing down to pop a wheelie.

The FreeWheel comes with all you need to set it up on your chair. The initial installation takes approximately 15 min., after that the FreeWheel clamps on in seconds.

The Adventures of Frank and Mustard

FrankandMustard.com

The Adventures of Frank and Mustard is a children’s book that was inspired by Simon Calcavecchia’s experiences of living with quadriplegia.

The reason we created this book is to express Simon’s life experiences in a creative way to both adults and children. The work inspires optimism and strength for life’s obstacles. We hope that in sharing these stories, children will see that they have the choice to see challenges as opportunities for growth. These books will emphasize the power to create love, joy and laughter in response to life’s events. More Information »
