The Irish Wheelchair Specialists
Whether you’re looking for self-propelled, transit, travel or paediatric wheelchair, we have a wheelchair to suit all needs. Our range of wheelchairs are designed to suit your lifestyle and requirements. From lightweight and compact wheelchairs that are ideal for travel to modular and prescriptive wheelchairs.
Choosing the right wheelchair is very important and you need to ensure that it’s the perfect fit to offer optimal comfort and pressure relief. The Wheelchair you choose will depend on several factors. The main factors are usually age, body type, diagnosis or reason for using a wheelchair, how transportable it needs to be and whether it will be mainly used inside or outside the home.
Our range of steel and aluminium Wheelchairs address all the factors above. For complex seating extra accessories like pelvic straps, different height backs, laterals and headrests can be added. A pressure cushion may also be needed for pressure relief.
Which Wheelchair is right for me?
Self-Propelled Wheelchairs allow you to wheel yourself with their large wheels using your upper body strength. They are ideal for short journeys, steering them with your upper body strength. Travel Wheelchairs are aluminium chairs that are designed for short-distance travel both inside and outside like trips to the shopping centre, hospital visits, the airport etc. Transit Wheelchairs have handles on the back to allow a carer or family member to take control of pushing and steering the wheelchair.
Our seating experts will do a detailed wheelchair assessment to customise a chair to best suit your individual needs. Please contact us to arrange an assessment on 1890 989 353 or alternatively contact your Occupational Therapist.
