Why choose a bespoke power chair?
When purchasing a power chair it is important to find the right product that meets all of your requirements. This is why we recommend for all customers to choose a 'bespoke' model – as one size definitely won't fit all!
Unlike 'off-the-shelf' chairs, a bespoke power chair boasts many inbuilt features that have been designed and adapted to fulfil your needs, and aid you in day-to-day life.
As bespoke power chairs are designed for an individual owner, a trained and approved Rehabilitation Engineer will conduct an initial assessment and look at a wide range of customisations – in order to prescribe and build a bespoke product that is right for you.
Customised features are designed to assist you in a number of ways from posture support to pressure relief, and can include: electric seating, cushions, angles, head support, width and depth of seat, plus many more.
Some customers find that choosing a power chair can be an intimidating task, which is why we at Wenman Healthcare aim to make it as easy as possible. For example, we find that many of our customers are concerned about using a bespoke power chair in their home or worry about control when driving. With customised features such as a tight turning circle, we can not only ensure you avoid any unnecessary bumps, but that your bespoke power chair will fit in to and improve your lifestyle.
It may be that your needs are likely to change in the future. The advantage of having a bespoke chair is that it can be altered when necessary, allowing the chair to change with you over time. This also saves you needing a new chair if your medical situation changes.
Here at Wenman Healthcare we boast a strong team of leading professionals who boast vast experience within the healthcare sector. This includes our very own dedicated Rehabilitation Engineer and Assistive Technologist and Wheelchair Engineer, who excel in prescribing and building bespoke mobility equipment to suit varying needs and conditions.
Rehabilitation Engineer, Sarfraz Gulab, added, "Purchasing a powered wheelchair has many more considerations than just matching a disability to a product, which is why we always advise customers to undergo an assessment either onsite at the Wenman Healthcare showroom or in the comfort of their own home.
"One of the main elements of this assessment is to understand how and when the power chair will be used, as building a chair with indoor capability and customisations is very different to a chair built for outdoor use, for example. Power chairs can really enhance an individual's lifestyle if the right product is used and provided, which is why expert advice is always recommended."
If you are considering investing in bespoke power chair, we would be more than happy to demonstrate our product range and conduct a no obligation assessment of your requirements.
