Special Needs Child Carriers

Carriers for Special Needs Children & Toddlers

The Piggyback Rider® can be used as a disabled assistive device for special needs children with Cerebral Palsy, Downs Syndrome, Muscular Dystrophy, Cystic Fibrosis, Autism, & more.

The Piggyback Rider® is available for children of all types, including those who have some lower extremity disability. While we did not design our product specifically for those with special needs, our child carriers meet the requirements to be considered an assistive device with the ISO 9999 certification. As a parent, you can breathe a sigh of relief and enjoy outdoor activities with your little one. Go for a hike, attend a local amusement park, watch a fireworks display, or navigate the airport terminals with ease knowing that your child is secure and not getting muscle fatigue from long-term walking.

Child-wearing is one of the most natural forms of carrying your child, and it’s now easier than ever with many products available on the market. Some carriers even support children up to age three! This helps alleviate the frustrations of constantly picking up your toddler while multitasking.

Our special needs toddler carriers allow you to support any child up to 60-80 pounds piggyback style. Both of you will be amazed at how quickly your natural instincts kick in to adapt to the “piggyback ride.” Our patented design allows both of you to use your arms freely as you explore your next adventure together. Your child’s weight will be evenly distributed, making it a comfortable experience. There is also an added level of comfort and security with the duo-harness set up. The design acts like a backpack, so your child will always be secure while they ride the bar!

Consider asking your insurance company if they will cover the unique design of The Piggyback Rider® if your child has been diagnosed with:

    • Cystic Fibrosis (CF)
    • Muscular Dystrophy (MD)
    • Cerebral Palsy (CP)
    • Autism
    • Down Syndrome
    • Spinal cord injuries
    • And any other disability that diminishes prolonged use of the lower extremities

Special needs children who have difficulty with muscle strength and control can experience joy and amazement with our standing child carrier design! Now you both can enjoy being immersed in outdoor activities instead of being fearful or anxious about what your child can or cannot do.
