MERU is part of the QEF group. We aim to improve the lives of children with disabilities, by creating new possibilities. We design and manufacture specialist assistive equipment for children and young people with disabilities, such as the Travelchair and Bugzi, our mini powered wheelchair. Our products can provide children with independence and the opportunity to learn and achieve, as well as the chance to have fun and make friends. Our vision is to see all disabled young people and their families living life to its full potential. 

Bugzi

Bugzi is our powered wheelchair for young children and thanks to fundraised income it can be loaned for free to every disabled child that will benefit from it. Bugzi offers young children with mobility challenges the opportunity to move around independently - often for the first time. This means children can be more active and interactive with their family and friends. To apply for a Bugzi for your child, you will need to complete an application form and attend an assessment at one of our many centres across the country.

Adapting toys 

The  team at MERU, often supported by fantastic volunteers, can adapt children's favourite toys so they can be used with a wide variety of accessible switches. This means everyone can join in playing, racing cars and moving to music. These toys also teach children ‘cause and effect’ which can be helpful in learning about the world.

You can also buy pre-adapted toys, along with whichever accessible switch is right for your child, direct from MERU. For more information on how to send in your favourite toy or on our range available to buy, contact our team by email or call 0208 7701151
