ATtoday – New powerchair allows young boy to live his life to the full14th May 2019
Equipment specialist, Precision Rehab, is set to debut a new chair at Naidex next month where it will be showcasing its existing range to end-users.
The dealer will also be pushing its Piccolino chair, which it says has enjoyed success with the company’s clients.
One of its clients, eight-year-old George Lockley, needed his powerchair replacing last year with one that was larger and had more features.
The family attended several exhibitions to see what was available and George tried four or five different models.
In May 2018, Precision visited George at home to conduct an assessment to ensure the chair would meet all George’s individual needs.
As soon as the family had secured the necessary funding it got in touch with Precision to order George’s chair which was delivered in November.
Matt James, director at Precision Rehab, said: “It has been such a pleasure to help George and his family.
“As with many Piccolino powered wheelchairs, we tailored George’s to meet his exact requirements including moving the joystick from left to right, fitting a different seat belt and custom lower leg length.
“We also fitted additional lateral supports to provide George with increased postural support as he is quite slim for his height. George also wanted black upholstery on the seating with red stitching and this was also provided.”
With seat widths of 270 – 430 mm, a depth of 320 – 385 mm, and back height of 400 – 480 mm combined with side supports, head support and other seat accessories all of which are multi variable and individually adjustable, the Piccolino aims to be a versatile powered wheelchair.
