Helping children like Leia

Leia was born with a rare form of mitochondrial disease. As a result she has development delays, epilepsy, needs to be fed by tube, is deaf and has severe muscle weakness, similar to Cerebral Palsy, which means she is unable to sit without support or walk.

Until a kidney transplant a few months ago Leia also had kidney disease, but the donation of a kidney from her dad, Tom, happily means that this is no longer the case. However, with only a specialist structured functional seat like a high chair at home that she wouldn’t be able to tolerate, it meant she would have needed to stay in bed while she continued to recuperate – until they turned to us to provide a specialist supportive seat called a P Pod.
