Wheelchairs are one of the most well-known mobility aids, and they come in a surprising array of shapes, sizes and designs, to meet the needs of each individual user.
Self-Propel wheelchairs are the traditional wheelchair that most people think of, you can either push yourself along using the large wheel handles, or if necessary a carer or assistant can push the chair for you. They are affordable, easy to operate and come with a range of styles and accessories.
Transit wheelchairs are designed to be moved by the carer or assistant of the individual using them, they come in a similar range of colours and styles as self-propel wheelchairs and with similar accessories.
Tilt in Space wheelchairs are adjustable to many different positions, they provide support and padding to keep the user safe, and can be self-propelled or pushed by an assistant or carer. Tilt in Space wheelchairs are often requested by prescription as they are adapted to the user for total support where required.
Travel Chairs are foldable chairs which can be packed into a car or carry-case, they are great for people who are able to walk, but may suffer from fatigue or dizziness, they are pushed by a carer or assistant like transit wheelchairs but tend to be lighter to make it easier to pick up.
Powerstroll units are a modern way to update an existing manual wheelchair, it adds a set of motorized wheels to your wheelchair allowing for an individual’s carer or assistant to move it with ease, these are especially useful for hills, difficult surfaces such as grass or dirt, or for giving an extra boost to get over a ramp.
