How does it work?

Our many years of experience has helped us to develop an essential five stage process to finding, fitting, building and delivering the ideal Active Wheelchair for your needs:

1. Initial consultation

This is a great opportunity to speak to one of our experts who can begin to understand your personal needs and make initial product recommendations. This often happens over the phone or in one of our stores.

2. FREE At-home assessment

We will come to you at home and undertake a comprehensive assessment. This is essential in enabling our experts to fully understand your individual needs. Lasting around 90 minutes, you can try three chairs, select the right one and we'll complete the prescription with you.

3. Order and customisation

If you decide to order the recommended Active Wheelchair, we’ll include all of the custom features and optional extras that will make the chair uniquely yours. Our engineers will then assemble and fully test your chair to ensure everything is as it should be.

4. Delivery and setup

The exciting part – when we deliver you your brand new wheelchair! We will setup the chair, show you how all of the functions work and provide advice on how to get the most out of your shiny new product.

5. Aftercare

Have a question or can’t quite remember a particular function? Simply call our friendly aftercare team who will be happy to help. Your ability is our priority!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Are Active Wheelchairs heavy?

A: The Range of our active chairs Varies Greatly, but rest assured we can find a chair that will work, with new technology enrolling into the mobility industry, we can now provide full Carbon Fibre frames weighing as little as 3.5kg!


Q: What’s right for me - folding or rigid?

A: It all depends on your lifestyle, both chairs have advantages and disadvantages, for example, a folding chair is very compact, meaning for storage or small cars it can be ideal. They’re also very easy to fold and unfold because they are based on cross frames which have been around for years. The rigid chair though also has many benefits, without the cross frame the chairs can be much lighter, and without lots of nuts and bolts, the chair becomes more roll efficient, meaning it takes less energy to move the chair.

A: There is no formal or legal training needed, however there are many TIPS AND TRICKS our experts can help you identify!
