Precision Rehab Limited – A newly founded company with staff that have over 20 years experience in specialist powered wheelchairs are pleased to announce that they have agreed to be an official supplier of Paravan powered wheelchairs for the UK and Ireland.

Precision Rehab Limited will supply the Paravan wheelchairs on a direct sales basis and throughout the UK and Ireland on an authorised dealer basis, this will ensure a high standard of assessment, sales process, after sales care including service and repair coverage.

Matthew James the founder of Precision Rehab Limited decided to start the company due to the lack of specialist powered wheelchairs in the market place. Matthew has worked with both the Balder and Etac range of powered wheelchairs for 20 years and following the announcement that this range of chairs would no longer be manufactured started to research the worldwide market for specialist powered wheelchairs. This lead him to Paravan a German based manufacture and developer who also wanted to open up into the UK market. Matthew added that following productive meetings with Paravan and the impressive facilities at the factory it was the perfect solution for both Paravan and Precision Rehab.
