Gerald Simonds buys in lightest wheelchair models yet


Aylesbury mobility and seating solution specialist Gerald Simonds has expanded its wheelchair product range with the addition of Motion Composites folding frames.

The wheelchairs, from Canadian manufacturer Motion Composites, are the lightest that Gerald Simonds have ever stocked.

The frames are constructed from carbon-fibre, allowing for a lightweight yet strong model.

The Veloce frame is made from high-modulus carbon T700, renowned for its strength and vibration dampening properties.  It folds to fit in any vehicle with a transport weight* of just 11lbs (5.1kg).

The Helio comes in three versions, the carbon fibre C2, the C2 Heavy Duty and the aluminium framed A7. These all come with a unibody Frame which eliminates joints, reduces movement and maximises efficiency.

Gerald Simonds was the UK distributor of the original Swede 24 wheelchair, one of the first lightweight rigid framed wheelchairs in production.

The Gerald Simonds range now includes wheelchairs, powerchairs, powerdrives, seating and pressure area care products and walking aids.
