This study investigates the impact of FrameRunning, a para-athletic sport designed for individuals with neurological impairments causing severe walking limitations, on the quality of life (QoL) in children with mobility restrictions. The cross-sectional study involved young Frame Running athletes aged 6–19 years in the Netherlands. Using the Psychosocial Impact of Assistive Devices Scale (PIADS), parents reported a significant positive change in their children’s QoL, specifically in the areas of competence, adaptability, and self-esteem. Notably, improvements were observed in performance, the ability to participate, happiness, and self-confidence. The study concludes that Frame Running contributes to an enhanced QoL in young athletes with mobility limitations, suggesting its potential as a recommended activity for improving the overall well-being of children and youth facing these challenges.
