Which powered wheelchair is right for you
Once you’ve checked out your needs for a powered wheelchair, find out more from the contacts below:
Assessors and sales reps
If you’re having an assessment with a professional, or with a sales rep, they’ll tell you about available products that may meet your needs. However, professionals will only tell you about products they know (and Wheelchair Services may only tell you about products they are able to supply from their approved range) and most suppliers will only tell you about products they stock.
