Innowalkers supplied to Special School

9 March 2020

Chailey Heritage School is a non-maintained, Ofsted awarded ‘Outstanding’ special school for children and young people aged 3 to 19 with complex physical disabilities, high health needs, sensory impairments and associated learning difficulties

.Following a grant from the Tim Henman Foundation, Chailey Heritage School received their first Innowalk just before Christmas and we understand that it has been in use daily. The second smaller Innowalk has recently arrived. These fantastic exercise machines are made in two different sizes, so one is being used by the older/taller pupils, and the other by the younger/smaller pupils. Training sessions for staff took place in February, which means that the school and teachers do not need to rely on physiotherapists being available to supervise every session, thus maximising the amount of time available for each young person to spend using them.

The Innowalk provides a fun way for young people with challenges to aid mobility, strengthen limbs, stay fit and take part in competitive exercise games.
