Ashley was born with a condition leading to physical limitation. Getting a VELA Tango 100ES chair for school use gives Ashley a better sitting comfort and enables him to more involvement in school activities.
Ashley was born with a condition leading to physical limitation. He has mobility problems due to low muscular endurance. He has pronated lower legs and forefeet which make it harder to walk and balance, and affect his posture and his back. He easily gets out of breath and his walking distance is very short. In addition he has heart problems and nutritional problems – and therefore he is quite small and weak.
Ashley has left junior school and is starting up senior school. He has made a pre-visit to the school with his mother and a therapist, to see how he could cope with the new environment.
In junior school Ashley suffered a lot from back pain and joint aches as he had a standard classroom chair and desk. His mother didn’t really realise that there was a problem until the OT visited the school, and said that the chair and desk wasn’t good for Ashley.
