Wheelchairs and Powerchairs
A wheelchair is an extremely personal piece of equipment. They invariably have to be set up to some degree - if not completely configured - for the user. Buying without trying can be an extremely high risk strategy.
Consideration also has to be given to how, when and where the item of equipment is to be used, and also whether the needs of carers have to be considered.
We stock a basic range of wheelchairs and walkers, but can order specialist and custom built versions.
While in their most basic format, these are wheelchairs which have been given motors, there most cannnot be a 'one-size-fits-all' approach to these. Even arriving at neat categories when considering shape, size, seating, indoor and outdoor capabilities, ancillary functions and so on is difficult.
There is a broad spectrum of electric powered wheelchair options ranging right through to very sophisticated systems to support special user requirements.
We can supply:
- Powerpacks, which can be attached to standard wheelchairs.
- Standard electric wheelchairs.
- Powerchairs with a range of configurations, sizes and capabilities.
- Powered chairs with a range of secondary functions.
- 'Off-road' powered wheelchairs.
We can draw on expert advice for seating systems if necessary.
