John Preston Healthcare Group Stand TC22

Under John Preston’s spotlight this year is the Foldachair range of folding electric wheelchairs, which have been enhanced with the addition of a new automatic model and a new wider model. The Foldachair D09 opens and closes manually and is comfortable yet light enough to place in the boot of a car. It is airline approved and very easy to operate. The Foldachair D11 has a wider seat width and larger user capacity but is still approved for airline travel. The Foldachair Auto uses a simple key fob to open and close automatically. An optional airline approved battery is available if needed.

On stand TB01 at this year’s Trade Days, Karma Mobility will be showcasing several new products including the Ergo 115 Tall and 125 Tall. The 115 and 125 are based on the original models but feature a new seating system which is two inches deeper making them suited for taller users. Also on show will be the second generation VIP2 folding tilt-in-space wheelchair which includes a new recline feature and headrest design. The recently launched Star 2 will also be on the stand. This new stylish wheelchair comes with a patented footrest hanger design for added user comfort.

One of the newest chairs to Pride Mobility’s Hudson Range, the Dorchester, is the first British manufactured lift chair to feature a 10” powered headrest, powered lumbar support and independent dual motors. With dual motors, the lift chair offers various seating positions for optimised comfort. Everything is controlled by a simple hand remote with a useful USB charging port and LED lights that allow you to pin-point your perfect seating position. The chair is available in both standard and petite sizes with a range of different colours on offer, including French Grey, Praline and Mocha as standard.

Scooterpac Stand TD20

Cabin Car Mk2 is Scooterpac’s centrepiece as it returns to Trade Days this year with its unique products. Its latest innovation, the Cabin Car Mk2, is now manufactured in the UK and puts its popularity down to its features, benefits and looks. Featuring a high tech reversing camera and USB phone chargers it is bristling with features, including insulation and a heater, so end-users can make the transition from car to scooter. The Cabin Car comes in four standard colours, but can be ordered in any colour the customer wants. The LED headlamps, powerful heater and luxury interior finish are designed to make it a stand-out product in the mobility market.

The Scooterpac Canopy is designed to make life easier for the end-user and offers dealers a chance to capitalise on the quickly growing market for scooter canopies. The latest version is still waterproof and windproof, ensuring the user is protected from the elements. It has new fixings which are comprised of an “ingenious” fitting system that does not require tools to be set up. The 2018 version of the canopy promises exciting and updated features and Scooterpac invites dealers to come to its stand to learn more. Its message for punters is: “See for yourself the mobility products that do not make any compromises.”
