Wheelchair and Specialist Seating Service

What we do

Provide wheelchairs and specialist wheelchair seating for permanent use, to children and adults who are registered with a Swindon GP.

Our team of dedicated Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists and a Rehab Engineer carry out comprehensive assessments of clients' needs.

To allow our clients to be as independently mobile as possible, we isssue:

  • Manual wheelchairs
  • Powered wheelchairs
  • Specialist wheelchair seating
  • Pressure-relieving wheelchair cushions

We work alongside Medical Engineering to provide custom-made seating and adaptations to wheelchairs where off-the-shelf products do not meet individual needs.
