The disability community is about to receive another big lift this year, courtesy of a mobility solution specialist. Precision Rehab, the maker of the UPnRIDE and Q700 UP M standing wheelchair products, is set to introduce its latest wheelchair product next month.
Precision Rehab has built its reputation as a developer and provider of highly reliable wheelchair products. Last year, at the 2018 Occupational Therapy Show, the company announced a number of mobility and wheelchair products. The moves received extremely positive feedback from the audience who visited the event.
The company’s UPnRIDE wheelchair is the first powered wheelchair of its kind in the UK market that provides auto balancing features and unchanged center of gravity. This advanced functionality ensures continuous stability for the wheelchair user, even in tough conditions.
The Q700 UP M wheelchair features a biomechanical standing seating system, which allows the user to lie flat or stand. It’s highly maneuverable and easily fits into the wheelchair accessible vehicles due to its low seat height.
How Precision Rehab’s product changed the life of a young boy
One of the company’s clients is a young boy named George Lockley who came from Welwyn Garden City in Hertfordshire, England. The 8-year-old George Lockey was born with a disability known as the Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 2. This means that George will not able to stand or walk due to his extremely weak muscles. This condition will force George to use powered wheelchairs at a very young age.
The young boy needed to replace his wheelchair which lacked some key features. George’s family has already attended several exhibitions and tried several wheelchair products. But it was in May 2018 that brought big changes to George’s life. It was the time when the Precision Rehab visited George to conduct assessment whether their wheelchair products would meet all of George’s personal needs, which include the use of joystick control as well as the different seat belt.
Fortunately, Precision Rehab’s wheelchair has managed to meet all of the client’s needs, allowing the young boy to live his life to the fullest. The Precision Rehab wheelchair has proved to be a game-changing tool and lifesaver for George and family.
