At the upcoming Naidex event in March, powerchair and lightweight manual wheelchair supplier Karma Mobility will be showcasing three new models: the latest version of the Blazer, the lightweight Agile, and the versatile Morgan.

On Stand N572 will be Karma Mobility’s compact indoor/outdoor Blazer powerchair, the latest version of the popular collection which features a new folding backrest boasting a 540mm height – an extension on the previous 460mm backrest. In addition, the company has reduced the width to 580mm against the former 600mm, whilst keeping the length at 1000mm.

These latest enhancements follow the recent introduction of a Captain’s Seat for more comfort and postural support. Users also have the option of a sling seat which can have a seat depth of 16-18 inches, adjustable backrest with a range of -3 degrees to 12 degrees, flip back armrests with 250-320mm, height-adjustable arm pads, as well as an adjustable headrest system.

Also available for users and healthcare professionals to view at the show will be the new Agile lightweight manual wheelchair.

With a taller than normal 510mm tension adjustable backrest, 18-inch seat depth, three seat widths of 16 inches, 18 inches and 20 inches, and a maximum user capacity of 125kg, the Agile has been designed to be meet the needs of most wheelchair users.

Created to aid both the user and carer, the crash-tested Agile includes 80-degree removable footrests and flip back armrests, as well as optional height-adjustable armrests and elevating footrests.

Available with a white, black and pearl silver frame and a choice of black or grey upholstery, the mobility aid can be fitted with 14-inch, 22-inch and 24-inch quick-release wheels and can be converted from a transit to a self-propel wheelchair.

The final mobility product being showcased at Naidex by Karma Mobility is the Morgan powerchair, which features a highly configurable Versus Seat which can be adjusted from 337mm-662mm in width and from 150mm-600mm (stepless) in depth, should the standard seat not be suitable for the user.

Additionally, a width of 600mm and its turning circle of 650mm enables enhanced indoor control provided by the mid-wheel drive whilst the independent suspension and power motor allows the powerchair to navigate rough terrains.

The Karma Mobility team will be available on stand N572 at Naidex 2020 to demonstrate the new additions to its product portfolio to clients and healthcare professionals.

Mark Duffield, General Manager of Karma Mobility, commented: “Naidex is the perfect event for us to launch these new products as we will be able to gather feedback over the two days from users, retailers and healthcare professionals, all of whom are vital user groups to us as a business.”
