Wheelchairs have followed the same old form for many years. With a lack of appropriate support, poorly designed wheelchairs can cause pain, discomfort and even result in long term health problems.
The Strongback solves the problem of poor posture with a curved supportive backrest and an improved seat angle to prevent slipping and slouching forward, encouraging the shoulders back and the chest out, opening the lungs and promoting an upright and healthy posture.
Designed with the carer in mind as well, the strong but lightweight aluminium construction means it can be lifted and transported easily. The push handles are positioned to offer the correct stance for pushing and the attendant controlled brakes provide confidence and control. Other standard features include folding backrest, quick release wheels and puncture proof tyres.
The award winning Strongback, designed to provide the perfect sitting position.
Seating surface moulds around the body to aid circulation and reduce pressure without the need for bulky and expensive posture support cushions.
Footrests simply fold back and lock flat against the frame for transport and storage, no need for fiddly removable footrests.
“At last there is a wheelchair that gives proper postural back support to provide the perfect seating position” The Strongback, winner of German Design Award
