Description

NEW COLOUR! The Special Tomato EIO Pushchair is the best of both worlds…a special needs buggy that provides mild to moderate positioning support AND a lightweight stroller that provides all the bells and whistles that make it easier for parents and carers on the go!

The Special Tomato EIO special needs pushchair is an innovative mobility solution which combines a classic pushchair design with the support and functionality required by children with mild to moderate postural needs. Suitable for children from toddlers 2 years old, up to around 7-8 yrs old (41kg/6.5 stone), this is a buggy that’s versatile to grow with your child. It includes lots of great features and is an excellent all-rounder for town and country as it has larger rear (11″) and front (6″) puncture proof tyres and spring suspension. So, if you’re going off road, across bumpy grass or gravel, then simply engage the swivel wheel lock on the front wheels, just two clicks, and off you go!

Standard features on the 4 wheeled EIO model include 2 padded hip lateral supports, 2 trunk lateral supports, a handy foot block (useful for shorter passengers to rest their feet), a padded headrest and a 5 point ‘waistcoat style’ harness. There’s also a large sun canopy (ideal for hiding away from the world providing a safe space), an under-seat shopping basket (capacity 10lb) and a lightweight easy to fold frame which will fit into most car boots. For children who need a little more postural positioning, the Size 1 and 2 Soft-Touch Liners and Soft-Touch Sitters can be inserted into the Special Tomato E10 pushchair (see Special Needs Seating for these options or click link).

The Special Tomato EIO’s standard features include the padded hip and back laterals that help with minimal postural support or to decrease the overall width of the seat for younger/smaller passengers. As you child grows, you can simply remove them. There is also lots of storage with a large shopping basket under the seat, two water bottle holders on either side of the stroller and a large pocket for keys, cell phones etc on the back of the canopy. There’s a peek-a-boo panel on the canopy so you can always see your child. If your child has light or sun sensitivity, you can choose to add a Sun Protection Cover with UV protection – this also provides for those kids who like to hide away from the world, which can be overwhelming.

With front swivel wheels, the buggy is a breeze to push and manoeuvre whether inside or out. Engage the swivel wheel lock on the front wheels, just two clicks, and venture on effortlessly. The large airless wheels and increased stability of the locked front wheels make a huge difference when you’re going over rougher terrain. The rear wheels can be easily removed to make it easier to pop into your car boot.

The EIO special needs pushchair from Special Tomato is a lightweight, mobility buggy unmatched in features, quality and price. With a host of accessories included, you get all you and your child needs in one affordable package.

If you need a pushchair for two and have a younger sibling aged 6m to around 4yrs (maximum weight 20kg) then you may add a Buggypod Seat to the Special Tomato EIO to make a ‘double’ buggy, suitable for one older child and a younger sibling.

If you need a double buggy for two children with special needs then we have special Buggy Connectors that will allow you to ‘join’ two buggies together making a Special Tomato EIO Double Pushchair – yes, it’s wider but it’s versatile as well, giving you the option of using a double buggy when you need it and two singles when you have a helping hand.

If you need additional restraint for a child with challenging behaviour, then this pushchair can be fitted with an additional body support harness and/or pelvic strap. Please call us for more details on these options.

    Hi Delyth
    Thanks so much for all your help with getting Spencer the disability buggy. I unfortunately missed delivery this morning after an a&e visit for a suspected broken ankle for Spencer. Fortunately it doesn’t seem to be broken but he is struggling to walk. So this pram will come in very handy when it comes tomorrow. Honestly though thank you so much. I cried when I got the call to say we were getting it.
    Many thanks

    I can not thank the freedom for kids team enough !! Kit is almost 2 and a half and had steadily outgrown his buggy! Kit has significant development delay and as a family we heavily rely on Kit being safe and secure when we are out and about! I contacted freedom for kids initially to ask for pushchair advice and they have been such an amazing valuable source of support and understanding ever since !! We received this push chair only a few weeks later which is just perfect to support Kits needs and is literally a life changer for our whole family too !!
    Thank you guys so so much 🖤 Hannah

    Thank you so much to Freedom for Kids for giving us a much needed information and advice for Dante’s specialist buggy.

    Dante is a beautiful cheerful boy who is non verbal ASD. We have challenges we face, but the most daunting ones to manage are when we are out and about. Dante’s behaviour is erratic, he has zero danger awareness and often has to have physical intervention to help calm him and prevent an incident from occurring. He was being strapped into a buggy that was designed for younger children and it was difficult to keep him safely and comfortably contained within the buggy we were using whilst out.

    Upon realising that we would realistically require a more specialist buggy, we spoke to Freedom for Kids who kindly took the time to go through Dante’s needs, what his challenges are and what it was we needed as a mobility aid as his carers. When we went through the options, the prices were quite far from our budget, especially as a full time carer to two young disabled children.

    Freedom for Kids explained that there are some charities that they work with that may be able to offer funding to help pay for the buggy that would have been the most suitable for Dante. We contacted them and got a fast, friendly response. It was a simple application process and it was greatly appreciated amongst all of the complicated forms and applications that usually come with children with additional needs.

    We were granted the funding and within a few days, we had our new buggy for Dante.

    The difference has been night and day. He is more comfortable, far more secure which makes his meltdowns more manageable and it has relieved a lot of the concerns and stresses that we have had as his carers. He is not struggling for space or able to escape the secure 5 point harness. The buggy is easily transportable and so easy to use, that the immensely stressful outdoor trips are more of a pleasure. Dante enjoys being in there, he can actually also nap in his buggy comfortably when tired, which, given his age and how tired he does get when overwhelmed or overstimulated, is a fantastic element that has in fact reduced the amount of meltdowns we would normally experience during a trip out of the home.

    We no longer have to fear him escaping and running into a dangerous or hazardous situation, we can manage him quickly and effectively when his behaviour becomes challenging, and his buggy will last him for a long time and will allow him to grow and remain comfortable.

    Without Freedom for Kids and the charity grant, this would not have been possible. At best, we would have been provided with a standard buggy from the wheelchair services which would have been grossly inadequate for Dante and his needs. When we got the Special Tomato EIO, you changed our lives for the better in a way we could never have anticipated. Thank you so much for everything you have done, we will always have so much gratitude for the new possibilities that you have given Dante and us!

    Many Thanks

    Dear Wendy and the rest of the team,

    I just wanted to write to say a massive thank you!

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

    Our new pram arrived and it is all set up and it has given us a new lease of life. As a family and specifically for Rosie- our lives really have changed! The fact we can now enjoy day to day activities knowing Rosie will be safe is amazing.

    You were so incredibly helpful throughout the whole process and nothing was ever too much trouble. Your knowledge, expertise and advice regarding the equipment and charity knowledge have been invaluable to us.

    Thank you so much again for all of your help and support. It really does mean the world to us and we will be forever grateful we received the pram we so desperately needed without struggling financially.

    Take care and look after yourselves!

    Best wishes,
    Amy x

    Hiya,

    I just wanted to say a huge, huge thank you to you all!

    Isla’s new Special Tomato EIO pram arrived on Friday and it is amazing!

    This weekend we have been out for walks and Isla is very happy with her new pram!
    No more escaping from the straps, no more putting her feet down and scrapping the floor, no more feet trapped between the wheel and foot rest!

    I can’t put into words how much better it is for her and how much easier it has made trips/walks/ days out for our family.

    You were all so helpful and knowledgeable and we appreciate it so much!

    Thank you again for all of your help and support. We are so grateful!

    Kind Regards,

    Jayne
