Wheelchairs

At Independent Living we understand that choosing a wheelchair is a big step for many people. We take time to assess your requirements, to ensure we find a chair suitable for you:

  • How long will the user be sitting in the chair at any one time?
  • What type of terrain will it need to cover?
  • What weight limit is required?
  • Will the wheelchair need to be lifted into a car, and by whom?
  • Does the user have any special requirements, such as reclining seat, or raised leg position?

We have a range of wheelchairs in stock, ready for you to take straight away, so visit either of our showrooms to find the right wheelchair for you.

Powered Wheelchairs

A power chair offers more freedom and independence than a manual wheelchair, especially for those who perhaps don’t have the strength to propel themselves for much distance.
There are a range of power chairs that we are able to supply, and we will offer our best recommendation after assessing your needs.

There is a Karma wheelchair for nearly every need, from the basic robust Sparrow to the super-light Ergo-Lite, and from the compact Dove to the heavy-duty Martin.
