We’ve always designed for inclusive play. Now, we’re introducing a whole new way to play for all. The We-Go-Swing™ is the first no-transfer inclusive swing that can be integrated into the playground setting and invites kids of all abilities to get in on the fun.
Opportunities for All: A truly inclusive playground experience, the spacious entry deck for the accessible playground swing can be connected to a ramp for easy roll-on access, and there’s no need to transfer from a mobility device to take part in the fun. Plus, there is plenty of room for children of all ages and their caregivers to sit and/or stand together and enjoy a ride.
Fun Social Interactions: Because the handlebars help move the swing, all users can actively contribute to the motion. With all kids on board the working together, it’s a collaborative effort that builds cooperation and creates fun for everyone.
Beneficial Movement: With all children helping to create the swinging motion, they all get the benefit of actively engaging muscles throughout their bodies while building their motor planning skills, strength and balance.
Part of the Action: The swing can be situated within the play area, making it a welcoming and integral part of the full play experience.
