There are so many manual wheelchairs available that starting the journey to chose one can be daunting, our aim is to offer product advice and support to enable you to make the right choice.
Manual wheelchairs start from basic transport chairs used for light activity, to active user chairs for those with a more active lifestyle and more demanding usage. For more information about basic manual wheelchairs visit our online shop.
We have chosen key manufacturers to work with to bring a range of manual wheelchairs for those with more complex requirements. Leading manufacturers Sunrise Medical and Invacare each have a range for chairs that offer performance, energy efficiency solutions and style.
Knowing the type of manual wheelchair you want starts with your requirements and knowing what you would like to achieve. Our assessments allow us to spend time with you understanding this, often with family members and healthcare professionals. Our extensive product knowledge and access to demonstration stock means we can offer a complete range and solution. Our assessments are an ideal chance for you to fully see a product, how it works and what it looks like as well as try it, see how it feels and how it works for you. We spend time with you discussing all the options available for each product and thoroughly prescribe a chair that suits your requirements as well as look at any accessories such as pressure relief.
Our range of active user manual wheelchairs have been developed significantly over the last few years taking advantage of modern technology such as carbon fibre, incorporating this into frames for ultra-light weight but solid chairs. They are stylish as well as practical and one no longer means compromising the other.
Our assessments can be done at your home, in our store, or at another place where you may be wanting regular use. Usually trying a manual wheelchair at home gives you a greater understanding of how it will fit and work within your own environment. Discussing your needs with one of our wheelchair specialists beforehand will help us select a few options to bring.
Our assessments are not limited to any timescales. We spend time with you and your family and healthcare professional ensuring all requirements are considered and that we understand your needs and expectations including what you want to achieve now whilst future proofing where we can.
Whether you’re looking for a transit wheelchair, rigid wheelchairs or anything in between we have a range of Manual Wheelchairs for you to try in our shops. Our friendly staff are always happy to help answer any questions you have to ensure you make the right purchase for your needs.
