Wheelchairs

 

a) Manual wheelchairs

Manual wheelchairs enable carers to take out people with limited mobility.

This can be, for example to attend a doctor’s appointment or to visit to an optician. It is also possible to take them out to socialise or to have a pleasant walk in the fresh air.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All our manual wheelchairs are self-propelled, which has the following benefits:

- Enables carers to move the wheel-chair more safely over uneven grounds and up and down pavements.

- The disabled person can move this wheelchair himself.

- The wheels can be removed which makes it easier to load the wheelchair into a car.

 

b) Tilt in Space Wheelchairs

Tilt in Space wheelchairs are designed for those that need to spend longer periods of time in a wheelchair, and who may also need assistance with their posture. The wheelchair can be tilted and reclined to help the user maintain the correct posture, as well as assist with even pressure distribution. Anatomically shaped cushioning ensures that it is a true "comfort wheelchair", and also ensures that the necessary postural support is provided.

c) Powered mobility

Electric Scooter

Our Leo is a small scooter, which is suitable for inside or outside on flat surfaces. It can be easy dismantled into 5 manageable pieces for easy transport. Easily adjustable tiller, width adjustable armrests & height adjustable seat allows the user to customize to suit their needs.

Powered Wheelchairs

 

We have different models of powered wheelchairs for different needs.

 

 

 

 

a) The Meyra Optimus II is a class III powered wheelchair, which is allowed on the road. It is suitable for bad roads and rough paths. Because of its size it is not suitable for inside and not easily transported in a car.

 

                            

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

b) The Invacare Mirage is a transportable powered wheelchair. Its compact design and excellent manoeuvrability gives the Mirage an unrivalled performance both indoors and out.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

c) The Sunrise F55 Quickie is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. It is only intended for use as a pavement vehicle, but may also be used when crossing between pavements.

 

 

 

 

d) The Pride Jazzy 1121 is suitable for in-and outside use. It is fitted with advanced Active-Trac Suspension (ATS), to provide a smooth and comfortable ride whatever the terrain. It has a tight- space indoor manoeuvrability.

Walking aids

 

 

a) Walking Sticks

We have different models of walking sticks. Some are height adjustable; some have ergonomic handles (s. picture right). These handles allow the user to put more weight on the stick while protecting the wrist and hand.

 

 

 

 

 

b) Crutches

Our crutches have ergonomic soft grip handles and are open at the front making them easier to use.

 

 

 

 

 

c) Quad Base Walking Sticks

provide more stability than a walking stick but with the convenience of a one-handed walking stick. This is important in

tight spaces like narrow doorways.

 

 

 

 

 

d) Under Arm Crutches

are useful for people who don’t have enough arm strength to walk with normal crutches.

 

 

 

 

 

e) Rollator

A rollator is a walking aid which gives a lot of support. It can be used in and out doors. The basket makes it easy to transport things, as does the tray e.g. a mug of tea or a plate of food. The seat is very useful to improve the walking distance. The user can sit down for a break and then continue with the walk.

f) Forearm rollator

The forearm rollator has the same benefits as the normal rollator. It helps the user to walk more upright. Taking the weight on the forearms is useful for people with hand and wrist problems.

 

 

 

 

 

 

g) 3 wheel rollator

This is a perfect rollator for narrow spaces.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

h) Wheeled Zimmer Frame

is a stable walking aid for inside use. Two of them can be folded.
