Gerald Simonds becomes UK distributor for world’s lightest power add-on


Gerald Simonds Healthcare is now a distributor for the UNAwheel Mini wheelchair power add-on, which it hopes will have a significant impact on the manual wheelchair market in the UK.

Weighing just 5.3kg, the UNAwheel Mini is the world’s lightest wheelchair power add-on.

With a length of 85cm and a wheel diameter of 6”, it can be easily picked up with one hand, meets air travel guidelines and will fit in the boot of an average small family car.

The UNAwheel Mini comes with a travel bag for easy transportation when not in use. In addition, the UNAwheel handles are detachable for easy storage.

Powered by a built-in rechargeable battery which provides three speed modes, a maximum range of 15km and enough power to climb a 14% gradient, the UNAwheel Mini can be attached or detached from most manual wheelchairs in two simple movements.

The Central Positioning Mechanism of the unit allows the user to control their wheelchair with ease and comfort while the LCD display keeps them up to date with travel time, current speed and battery level.
