At The OT Show next week, TGA Mobility will be showcasing why its award-winning wheelchairs, powerpacks, powerchairs and mobility scooters deliver enhanced postural support and moving and handling advantages on stand E34, 21-22 November at the NEC, Birmingham.
TGA is a respected provider of specialist mobility equipment, working closely with occupational therapists to ensure positive client outcomes through structured assessment-led processes and appropriate product provision so client independence, comfort and support is maximised. On stand E34, senior product specialists will be demonstrating a selection of products from the proven TGA range including Strongback wheelchairs, powerpacks, WHILL Model C powerchair and Zest Plus mobility scooter. These products are considerately designed to provide better ergonomics for both end users and carers so that freedom and access outdoors is more positive.
Strongback wheelchairs form TGA are attendant controlled and self-propelling with a contoured backrest for effective lumbar support. These sculpted designs mould around the natural curvature of the spine so that better postural positioning can be achieved. The lightweight and foldable design provides greater postural support and a healthier seated position for users.
TGA will demonstrate at the OT Show a selection of wheelchair Powerpacks compatible with most wheelchair designs including many from the Strongback wheelchair collection and specialist tilt-in-space models, through a vast range of fitting brackets. The Powerpacks provide powered propulsion so pushing a wheelchair is strain-free. They consist of a motor, wheel(s), battery pack and handle grip controls that are operated by a carer. The Solo, Duo, HD and PLUS models provide a choice in terms of power and traction – all with utmost performance and reliability with the PLUS being a proven bariatric solution.
Alongside demonstrations of ergonomic TGA wheelchairs and Powerpacks, the team will also showcase the pioneering new WHILL Model C powerchair, specifically developed for users with less complex seating requirements – delivering independence at work or in the home. For OTs seeking a scooter solution for clients, TGA will also be demonstrating the Zest Plus, the mid-sized mobility scooter that can easily be dismantled minimising the risk of back injury for both users or carers. The Zest Plus includes active suspension which provides added stability and support to users, particularly important to those with challenging musculoskeletal conditions.Get your copy of The OT Magazine
