We recently caught up with 14-year-old Alyssa and her Dad, David, who told us that their family had just got back from a 5-week holiday to Thailand, where Alyssa’s Duro Stroller had proved to be invaluable! From rugged countryside terrain to bustling city streets, Alyssa’s Duro Stroller was the ultimate travel companion.

The Duro is a configurable, stable stroller solution with a great range of support and positioning accessories that will enable you to embrace the outdoors.


David says one of the most unforgettable moments was getting to visit the elephants up close, which was all thanks to the versatility of the Duro Stroller.

“I’d recommend the Duro to other families, it’s ideal for taking on holiday, it’s nice and light and you can go off road.”



Some of the key features of the Duro Stroller that David likes the most is its compact size and the ability to fold it down, meaning it can fit easily in the boot of the car.

Any parent knows how important it is to be able to quickly fold down the stroller, pop it in the car and be on your way! He also loves how maneuverable and light the Duro Stroller is.

“It makes it easy to put in your luggage and carry around… We did quite a lot of walking and Alyssa could just relax and enjoy the holiday.”

You may remember a 10-year-old Alyssa from one of our previous blog posts, where her family invited the team to spend some time at Waikato Equitherapy, one of Alyssa’s favourite places. Alyssa still loves pony riding to this day!

Alyssa was diagnosed at age 5 with Rett Syndrome, a neurological disorder, that mostly affects females – about 1 in 12,000. The symptoms of Rett syndrome are similar to those of autism and cerebral palsy and it can be misdiagnosed as those disorders. David describes Alyssa as an amazing girl who is giggly, laughs a lot and is happy every day.

Whilst girls and women affected by Rett syndrome may have difficulty communicating verbally and physically, it is important to realise that they experience a full range of emotions and understand more than they can express. They have engaging personalities and will enjoy taking part in social, educational and recreational activities at home and in the community.
