Wheelchair and mobility specialist, TGA, will unveil a new StrongBack wheelchair at next month’s Naidex exhibition.
The exhibition, which runs from Apirl 26-28 at Birmingham NEC, is a showcase for the latest accessibility, mobility and occupational therapy.
Developed in Switzerland, the foldable and lightweight StrongBack incorporates an ergonomically supportive backrest based on an award-winning seating concept.
Its unique shape moulds around the occupant to provide greater comfort through effective lumber support. This design is simple and requires little or no adjustment to perfectly fit the majority of people looking for an attendant controlled wheelchair.
The StrongBack provides a solution for many users who struggle to achieve correct posture and are prone to back pain or pressure-related issues. The foldable chair weighs just 11.3kg, so that carers can lift and store it easily.
Eric Cooper, TGA Wheelchair Powerpack Specialist commented: “The introduction of the new folding StrongBack is a significant development in manual wheelchair provision. It addresses the growing need for ergonomic wheelchairs that deliver better postural support and comfort without extensive adjustments.”
