There are so many areas to consider when looking for powered wheelchairs (otherwise known as electric wheelchairs), some clients know exactly what they are looking for, maybe a replacement of what they currently have and others are starting from scratch. For either customer the journey can present challenges, we aim to make the journey as smooth and as stress free as possible.
For years we have been developing our knowledge and understanding to become familiar with powered wheelchairs and we have chosen to work with the leading manufactures to offer you a varied and suitable range. Working with 3 main manufacturers does not limit the offering but does allow us to become product experts. Having this knowledge helps alleviate some of your stresses by helping answer some of your most early questions to help you set your own goals from a chair.
The powered wheelchairs in our range from Sunrise Medical, Invacare and Permobil cover a wide variety of requirements offering a powered wheelchair for all levels of users. From entry level basic indoor chairs with limited options and variations to complex prescribed powered wheelchairs with a number of complex options such as tilt, raise, standing. Understanding the customers goals and requirements are essential to helping find and suggest a chair.
Powered wheelchairs have developed vastly in the last few years becoming more adaptable for the user and the clinical needs. Chairs allow the user to completely continue with everyday and supporting independence when asked for. As well as the updated functionality of chairs today they are also nicely designed with a huge variety of colour, pattern and styles.
A product assessment is chance for you to view, see and try any powered wheelchairs you may be considering. We can do a demonstration at your home, in our store, or another place you may be wanting use this regularly. Usually trying a powered wheelchair at home gives you a greater understanding seeing how it will fit and work within your own environment. Discussing your needs with one of our wheelchair specialists before hand will help us select a few options to bring.
During an assessment we will give you a full thorough demonstration of the product going into details on how it works, where it works and why it may be best suited for you. We will discuss all the features and any optional extras that are available to the standard specification. As well as any accessories such as headrest and pressure relief.
Our assessments are not limited to any timescales, deciding on a powered wheelchair is large commitment, a rushed assessment cannot achieve this. We spend time with you and your family and healthcare professional ensuring all requirements are covered, that we understand your needs and expectations including what you want to achieve now whilst future proofing where we can.
