Most pushchairs are designed for children up to the age of around three, or occasionally five, but if you have a disabled child you will need a larger model.  These can be hard to find and expensive but are available through specialist sites like Special needs pushchairs

The site offers 7 different basic models of larger chairs, with maximum sizes of around 100kg – an average of age 10.  The Independence and the Independence Max caught our eyes in particular as being particularly lightweight and maneuverable relative to their larger size.

Manuals and exact specifications and sizes are also offered for all the pushchairs on the site as well as several discontinued models – good if you’ve gotten a second-hand pushchair. If you need a larger pushchair in the UK this looks like a good place to start.
