When it comes to choosing the right product for you there are a number of things that need to be considered:

  • The height and weight of the person using the equipment.
  • How mobile the person is on a regular basis.
  • The environment the equipment will be getting used in (Indoor/outdoor).
  • If the equipment can be tailored or adjusted to suit different needs.
  • In the case of a wheelchair- if the person needs an assisted wheelchair or a self-propelled.
  • The needs of the carer are also met e.g. the weight of the equipment, storage in vehicles and ease of use over long periods of time.
  • How comfortable the seating is for prolonged periods & if additional seating options can be sourced.
