Karma is keeping a lid on a key new product it is set to unveil to mobility dealers in three weeks when it takes to the stage at the Rehacare show.

Drip feeding only limited details, Karma said its latest development, which will be revealed on stand D23 in Hall 6, will incorporate robotics, internet of things (IoT), cloud and “other cutting-edge technology”.

The rest of the details are being kept under wraps for now, leaving dealers to guess what the product might be and where it will fit into Karma’s range.

Alongside its new product and other well-known pieces of equipment, Karma is set to showcase the VIP2 manual wheelchair which proved itself with dealers following industry trials last year.

Offering a combination of tilt in space and reclining positions to ensure users can achieve optimum pressure relief, the VIP2 has 35-degree tilt.

Meanwhile, the Flexx self-propel wheelchair, which will also be on Karma’s stand, is a highly configurable chair with features that allow the user to make adjustments for optimum use and comfort. 

The lightweight aluminium frame makes the wheelchair easy to navigate and control and standard features include adjustable backrest height and backrest angle, height adjustable arm rests, seat depth and adjustable rear wheel position.

Also on show will be examples from the company’s range of powered wheelchairs. The eFlexx is one of the lightest foldable powered wheelchairs currently available and now features lithium batteries. 

Another item on show, the Morgan powerchair, has been described as “a great all-round companion” with strong indoor and outdoor capabilities plus a small turning circle of just 65cm.

Finally, the Leon powerchair from Karma has been designed to take full advantage of rear wheel drive when being used outdoors. 

Geared for speed without compromising on stability or control, the Leon has a very narrow wheelbase (62cm) which allows for agile manoeuvrability.
