Invacare has announced a sponsorship agreement with Paralympians Hannah Cockcroft and Nathan Maguire.
As part of the package, the wheelchair racers have received Küschall Super Light (KSL) active manual wheelchairs to support them with their busy schedules.
The chairs, which Hannah and Nathan customised to their exact requirements using the online Küschall visualiser, were presented at an event in Warwickshire last week.
With the help of Rob Wickham at Bromakin wheelchairs, the couple were assessed and their unique specifications, with a couple of ‘special’ features, have been accommodated.
Hannah and Nathan commented: “We feel so privileged and lucky to have the support of Invacare behind us as we go into the Tokyo Paralympic Games. Our wheelchairs are our independence and freedom, so to be able to explore the Paralympic Village when we arrive, and of course enjoy our celebrations when we arrive home, is made even easier in our new KSL wheelchairs.
“So far, we have found them lightweight and easy to handle, with the new hydro forming technology making the chair easy to transfer in and out of the car. Thank you Invacare, we can’t wait for all the adventures to come!”
Hannah, who won two gold medals at the London 2012 Paralympics and a further three gold medals at the 2016 games in Rio de Janeiro, is also sponsored by Invacare for her Top End racing chair.
