Specialist wheelchairs are manual or powered wheelchairs that are highly configurable to offer you the ultimate wheelchair experience. Often completely made to measure, many of these specialist wheelchairs can be designed from the ground up to meet your individual needs.
The difference between a standard wheelchair and a specialist wheelchair can be like night and day. A specialist wheelchair can be completely customised to meet your requirements making it much easier to operate, whether it's a lightweight manual wheelchair or a complex advanced power chair with bespoke controls. The difference from a standard "off the shelf" wheelchair is incredible.
Anyone who uses a wheelchair full time may benefit from a specialist wheelchair, as the customisation options available mean that the chair can be set to their exact specifications making it more comfortable to use in their day-to-day life.
There are lots of different aspects to consider when purchasing a specialist wheelchair. Where will you use it? What type of cushioning does your wheelchair need? How do you transfer in and out of your wheelchair? All these questions and more will be talked through during a consultation/assessment.
If you have any questions about specialist wheelchairs or would like a free consultation, simply fill out our wheelchair home assessment form on the product page and one of our wheelchair specialists will call you back within one working day.
