DRS Rollikids – Wheelchair and mobility training courses 2022
In summer 2022, the department for children and youth sports in the DRS (German wheelchair sports association) will hold two wheelchair and mobility training courses for children and teenagers. The courses are conducted by specially trained teams of trainers, in which at least one trainer is a wheelchair user him- or herself. The parents of the participating children also take part in the training. Teleflex Medical GmbH in Germany has been supporting the DRS’s children and youth sports department as a partner for several years.
Wheelchair and mobility training courses are week-long courses that enable wheelchair users to learn and consolidate wheelchair driving techniques together with a parent. In a pleasant atmosphere, handling and dexterity with the wheelchair is improved in a playful way through joint movement.
The courses focus on the abilities of the children and young people and the focus is on experiencing things together. Wheelchair sport, driving technique training and everyday techniques such as climbing stairs, taking the escalator and getting into and out of the wheelchair are daily program items.
