Backpacks for Special Needs Children

Life Without Limits:
The Freeloader child carrier allows the entire family to join in every adventure.

The Freeloader has proven extremely helpful to families who want the entire family to go on adventures, hikes and family outings but have a variety of challenges for transportation with their children. It is the first carrier that is exclusively targeted to children 2.5 years of age and older and can carry weights of up to 80 lbs. This allows bigger children and toddlers to be safely accommodated and reduces the risk of back and neck strain for the carrier.

Parents with children that have the following conditions have seen their experiences improved by this transportation option made available to them:

  • Spina Bifida
  • Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Paralysis
  • Cri Du Chat
  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy
  • Polio
  • Down Syndrome
  • Congenital Heart Defects
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Muscular Dystrophy
  • Respiratory Distress
  • Asthma
  • Leber Congenital Amaurosis
  • Epilepsy
  • Blindness
  • Autism
  • Neurological Disabilities
  • Traumatic Brain Injury

 Child Carrier For Children With Heart Defects

Blake Finishes 5k With Mom

"Wanted to let you guys know that we used our Freeloader today at the HeartBeat 5000 in Minneapolis, MN. It is a run/walk to raise money for the Children's Heart Clinic patients. I am so thankful we had the freeloader with us! The little guy on my back has THREE congenital heart defects and was able to walk about half the 5k himself at age 5, but then pooped out! THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for allowing us to keep taking him with us wherever we go!" - Love, Blake's Racin' Hearts 5k Team
