WHILL powerchair under the spotlight as TGA makes OT Show debut


The WHILL powerchair took entre stage at TGA’s stand last week during its first time exhibiting at the OT Show.  

In addition to the new StrongBack wheelchair, powerpacks and folding mobility scooters, TGA’s team imparted advice and guidance on the new powerchair, which has steadily been gathering attention from the industry.

Senior TGA advisors were tasked with suggesting solutions to maximise client independence and well-being.

TGA said its stand welcomed “a healthy number” of public and private sector OTs along with representatives from Wheelchair Services.

Eric Cooper, wheelchair specialist at TGA, felt the OT Show was well attended this year. “My fellow product advisors and I were able to meet many new and existing contacts who all discovered the latest advantages of prescribing TGA products.

“We demonstrated the world-leading manoeuvrability of our WHILL powerchair on numerous occasions as its contemporary styling caught the eye of many visitors. The award-winning self-propel and attendant-controlled StrongBack wheelchairs were a regular topic of conversation especially as they can be combined perfectly with our powerpack range.

“OTs were able to see and experience the ergonomic benefits of StrongBacks and powerpacks as there is far less risk of musculoskeletal injury for users and carers.”

Cooper added: “Finally the compact ‘car boot’ mobility scooters we displayed, namely the dismantle-able Zest Plus and folding Minimo Plus offered a new dimension at The OT Show. OTs were able to appreciate how our proven mobility scooters provide a better quality of life and help clients improve their occupational performance.

“With over 30 years of expertise in this sector and with a family-run, caring ethos, we believe TGA is the informed choice for OTs. Overall the OT Show was a rewarding experience for both attendees and TGA and it was a pleasure to feel a buzz again at the NEC.”
