TGA Mobility is hoping to build on what it says has been a strong launch for its latest self-propel wheelchair, which was officially released onto the market last week.
The Swiss-designed StrongBack has already generated enquiries and leads from a number of UK mobility retailers following Trade Days, the company said.
The wheelchair is the latest version of the StrongBack which encompasses a contoured backrest for effective lumbar support. Its sculpted seat provides enhanced postural support for a wide range of wheelchair users who can benefit from increased comfort and reduced slumping or slouching.
The folding StrongBack is easily transportable as it is lightweight and easy to manage with a compact shape yet has a high user weight capacity of 135kg.
According to TGA, the original attendant controlled StrongBack has delivered strong sales for retailers, especially when sold with the TGA Wheelchair Powerpack. The new StrongBack is also compatible with the Powerpack.
TGA’s managing director, Daniel Stone, explained that Trade Days generated a rewarding number of enquiries for the StrongBack.
“This is an exceptional product that provides retailers with the potential for strong sales. Combined with the attendant-controlled version, retailers now have the ideal wheelchair proposition to solve the majority of high street customer needs. It was a pleasure as ever to meet up with potential and existing retailers so we could reiterate the value we place on their support,” Stone commented.
The StrongBack has 24’’ quick release wheels, anti-tip castors and an extremely low lifting weight of 7.9kg (without wheels and leg rests). The StrongBack is available with 40 and 45cm seat widths and is fitted with attendant brakes.
