TGA Mobility will be looking to bring more OTs into its customer fold next month where it will show its StrongBack wheelchairs, WHILL powerchair and wheelchair powerpacks at the OT Show in Birmingham.
The company works closely with therapists so that the most appropriate products are supplied for the client’s well-being and independence. Senior wheelchair specialists will be on hand throughout the OT Show to explain TGA’s products.
On show will be the new StrongBack self-propel wheelchair alongside the original attendant-controlled StrongBack, WHILL powerchair and the TGA range of four powerpacks.
New to the market the StrongBack self-propel wheelchair is a Swiss-designed product that incorporates a contoured backrest for effective lumbar support. Its sculpted backrest moulds around the natural curvature of the spine so that better postural positioning can be achieved with reduced slumping or slouching.
Building on the the attendant-controlled version, the new StrongBack provides greater postural support and a healthier seated position for many wheelchair users without the need for complex adjustments. Its 7.9kg lightweight frame ensures lifting and carrying is strain-free and the 24’’ wheels are quick release. When folded the StrongBack is compact for straightforward storage enhanced by reversable leg rests.
Meanwhile, the four TGA powerpacks provide powered propulsion so pushing a wheelchair is strain-free. With a vast range of fittings available each powerpack is compatible with the majority of wheelchair designs including specialist tilt-in-space models.
The Solo, Duo, Heavy-duty and PLUS models provide a choice in terms of power and traction. The PLUS version provides a bariatric solution that propels occupants weighing up to 32 stone.
Alongside demonstrations of the ergonomic wheelchairs and powerpacks from TGAthe stand will also showcase the new WHILL powerchair. Launched this year, WHILL is the first ‘personal electric vehicle’ of its kind that provides stylish aesthetics and advanced manoeuvrability.
