NRtimes – How to find the perfect powerchair

When looking for a powerchair there are many options available which at times can be confusing. To eliminate some of this, we spoke to Matt James, director of Precision Rehab, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of powerchairs with over 25 years industry experience.

How to find the perfect powerchair

When looking for a powerchair what are the primary things people should consider?

There are lots of things to consider when looking for a powered wheelchair, here is a list of points to consider: Lifestyle (what is the user wanting the powerchair to do on an everyday basis), what range/distance will they need to travel in a day, size and dimensions of the chair, what is the weight of the chair and what is the maximum user weight and combined weight (for lifts, house and car). read more

Why I wish I had known about Naidex sooner!

It’s been eight weeks since the order for my dream electric wheelchair was placed. I have had many appointments with Occupational Therapists, Social Workers, suppliers and my local Wheelchair Services throughout the years. Many of these appointments just ended in tears. I became reluctant to try any new equipment as I knew finding a chair which would allow me to be comfortable and independent, was incredibly challenging and emotionally draining for me.

I have a condition called Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 2. SMA is a rare, degenerative, genetically inherited neuromuscular condition. As a result of a delay in diagnosis of scoliosis on top of this, I have alway had quite complex postural and positional needs.  read more

Precision displayed the UPnRIDE and Sunrise Q700 UP M standing powered wheelchairs alongside the Paravan PR50, Paravan PR30 Evo II and the Paravan Piccolino, which features a low to floor seat height of 38cm with an option of 36cm.

“The two-day event was a fantastic platform for us to showcase and demonstrate our range of powered wheelchairs to OT’s from around the UK and discuss their client’s requirements and book assessments in a relaxed and friendly environment.”
