Specialist powered wheelchairs move
“There is a lack of specialist powered wheelchairs in the UK market place at present and so I believe Precision Rehab will fill a gap.”
Precision Rehab has become an official supplier of Paravan Powered Wheelchairs in the UK and Ireland.
Precision Rehab is a new company, set up by Matthew James who has over 20 years’ experience in the specialist powered wheelchair marketplace.
The company will be supplying the Paravan range both on a direct sales basis and throughout the UK and Ireland through authorised retailers.
Matthew told us: “I had worked with both the Balder and Etac range of powered wheelchairs for 20 years and following the announcement that this range of chairs would no longer be manufactured, I started to research the worldwide market for specialist powered wheelchairs.”
This led Matthew to Paravan in Germany. “Paravan was looking to open up the UK marketplace and after initial talks I visited and was very impressed by the production and development facilities. It was a perfect solution for both Paravan and our new company.”
He added: “We will be looking to ensure a high standard of assessment, sales process and after sales care including service and repair coverage. There is a lack of specialist powered wheelchairs in the UK market place at present and so I believe Precision Rehab will fill a gap.”
Roland Arnold, founder of Paravan has been developing new and innovative products since 1998. What was a one-man business was transformed into a private limited company in 2005 and has continued to grow ever since.
The company has been awarded 53 state and innovation awards for entrepreneurial achievements and employs around 140 people. The product range includes vehicle conversions, electric wheelchairs, movement trainers, seat collections, ramp systems, wheelchair boarding aids and hand controls.
