The Maclaren Major Elite is a special needs pushchair designed for disabled children with mobility difficulties or other special needs requiring transport. A lightweight and compact stroller, suitable from around 1 year to approx. 8- 10 years old, it is registered with with MHRA as a Class I Medical Device for Special Needs Children.
The Major Elite has been developed to meet the demand for an everyday buggy for children, who as a result of disability, have a need for a portable, parent-wheeled transport. The model is supplied in the basic format with no accessories, but there are numerous optional extras for the comfort and support of your child, such as Sun Canopy, Rain Cover, Padded Seat Liner, Lateral Supports, Chest Pad, Footmuff and Underseat basket. Special Tomato Sitters and Liners can also be used in this buggy and are suitable for those children requiring additional positioning and postural support.
The Major Elite single model is a lightweight stroller, sturdily built with square-section, aluminium chassis and 8 wheels to withstand years of rugged service. It features swivel front wheels for easier manoeuvering and square grip handles. This special needs stroller is most suited to smoother surfaces around town rather than rougher terrain. Please be aware that as your child grows it may become more difficult to manoeuvre as they’re are only 4 small wheels.
A three position detachable foot rest, brakes and a five-point safety harness all come as standard. The Major Elite has been tested by the Medical Devices Agency to 50kg/110lb. It is unlikely that a child over 10 years old or above 35kg would fit into this pushchair, however it has been tested to the higher weight capacity for safety. The unique Maclaren folding action for the Major Buggy creates ease of handling and storage.
