Stories

  • Just want to tell you about my son, Luca, who was born at 27 weeks, 810grams.

    He has had many health issues (some ongoing), and he has had a Medifab Shuttle Discovery since he was 13 months. Luca has had many benefits since he loves being sat up, looking around his surroundings, and seeing what is going on in the world.

    My partner and I love the design of the chair - it is amazing as the impact it has had with his posture. Being able to be change the angle is great as Luca can go to sleep in comfort.

    The chair can face either way which is very handy as Luca has a tracheostomy so we can see him all the time. We have had so many comments from people saying it is very flash!

    Regards very happy parents,

    Jaclyn and Moritz.

  • Kasey

    My daughter Kasey got the Shuttle Discovery system, it was so versatile and really supported her in every way possible. We used it as a pram/highchair/playchair and she was always comfortable and happy in it. I’d definitely recommend Medifab and am so grateful for what they can offer.

    We got the Shuttle Discovery through the Child Development Service to help my daughter; she is now 2 years old and has grown not to need it. It helped her so much with the stability and core strength. That made her where she is body strength wise.

    Thanks so much!

  • Aroha

    When Aroha tried the Shuttle Discovery seat out she had already made some great progress with her sitting ability and hand function although it was quite an effort for her to stabilise as well as play.

    This bright little button now enjoys her own Discovery which provides excellent stabilisation of her lower body giving her the best opportunity to play and interact.

    A bonus for mum is the sibling seat on the buggy! A few months after Aroha got her Discovery system a baby arrived so they can now enjoy the adventures together on Great Barrier Island where they live.

    Medifab are grateful to be able to share Aroha's story.

  • Zara

    Zara is a little girl about 18 months old, who does really well sitting up now she has her Discovery.

    Her earlier problems with feeding due to poor head control have been resolved due to the great support that the Discovery seating gives her through her legs and spine.

    Thanks for sitting so nicely for the camera Zara!

  • Emelia

    Madison Nicholls says her new Shuttle Discovery buggy from Medifab has given her peace of mind when it comes to caring for her 18 month old daughter, Emelia. “I can put Emelia in the Discovery seat and know she’s in a safe place. It has made life a little easier.”

    Emelia has neurological problems that result in seizures and problems with feeding. She also has low muscle tone, and needs a lot of support for her body and head.

    Madison says Emelia’s neurodevelopmental therapist helped to secure funding for the Shuttle Discovery buggy. “We thought the buggy would support Emelia well and keep her body nice and straight. It’s important she is in the right place with her bones and body in line so she is comfortable.”

    Madison says she appreciates being able to seamlessly switch the Discovery seat from the buggy to a high chair base for feeding. “I use it for both purposes every day so it’s great it is so easy to use.”

    She is particularly happy with the ‘non-medical’ aesthetic of the buggy, something Medifab has worked hard to achieve. “I think it looks really cool and it was great we were able to personalise the buggy by choosing the colours we wanted for the seat.”

    The buggy has given Madison a little more confidence to get out and about with Emelia, she says. “It is easily manoeuvrable and runs really well. We’re just in the process of getting a bit of extra support in the seat for Emelia’s head which tends to move around a lot when we go over bumps. But other than that it’s been great.”

    Madison says Medifab has been “really good” to deal with.

    “This is the first time I’ve dealt with Medifab and overall I’m really happy with both the product and their service.”
