Permobil has welcomed Nathalie McGloin as brand ambassador for its TiLite manual wheelchairs.
A TiLite user for many years, in 2015, Nathalie McGloin became the first woman with a spinal cord injury to be granted a racing license in the UK.
Commenting on the team up, Gordon Cunningham, general manager of Permobil UK and Ireland, said: “At Permobil we are passionate about the needs of each individual user and we are always looking at how we can make sure people living with disabilities have access to the best technology available.
Adding: “As a long time user of Tilite wheelchairs, Nathalie knows what a difference the right product can make to a person’s quality of life. So we are very excited to that Nathalie can help us bring that message to a wider audience.”
Discussing her new role and her experiences with Permobil, McGloin explained how she hass always been passionate about TiLite.
She said: “When I was asked to become a Permobil ambassador, I was so excited at the opportunity and said yes straight away. I’ve been injured for 20 years as a result of a car crash and for the majority of my life as a wheelchair user, I’ve used a TiLite.
“I am a converted Tilite user, having had my first one whilst I was at university, but once I’d had a Tilite, I’ve never been back to another brand. Living with a spinal cord injury isn’t always easy so having a wheelchair that is reliable and maximises your independence is so important.
I’ve always been passionate about Tilite as a brand and therefore my endorsement of Permobil products is genuine and organic.”
Concluding: “Having recently been introduced to the European Permobil family, I’m very proud to have become part of a great team and I can’t wait to start working with the company who creates products that allow me to live my life to the fullest.”
