Buggy boards for self propelled wheelchair

yetiwife Member Posts: 2
Help. Does anyone know of a make of buggy borad that would fit onto a small wheelchair? I know strictly speaking you shouldn't adapt a chair but when you have a disabled child and a tired toddler and one pair of hands you need to be inventive.
Does anyone have the same problem and any other solutions?
Thank you

    I use a buggy board on my daughters 'New Bug' wheelchair, it's a Scallywags one, which is width adjustable. I previously tried a buggypod, which is an additional seat, but it fell off with my son in it!
    Hope this helps.
