Two new “ground-breaking” and versatile powered wheelchairs to be launched at The OT Show
Supplier of bespoke powerchairs Precision Rehab will be launching two “ground-breaking” new models on stand F21 at this year’s OT Show.
The new Paravan PR40 powerchair combines the specification and multi-function options of the PR50 and Biolution models, featuring an electric tilt of 45° backwards and up to 20° forwards, standing and lying positions fitted as standard along with a redesigned adaptive seat shell system. With a width of 64cm, the PR40 is easy to manoeuvre and features “cutting-edge” R-net controls with seat memory positions. Additional control systems are available depending on specific client requirements and with a maximum user weight of 140kg, this makes the PR40 suitable for a wide range of powerchair users.
In addition, Precision Rehab’s new Paravan PR25 powerchair will be showcased to healthcare professionals at The OT Show. It is based on the Paravan PR40’s compact chassis and uses its automatic stabiliser wheels to enable the seat system to be powered from a normal seat height to floor position. This function allows children and smaller adults to access the chair from ground level, enabling interaction with their peers.
With a base width of 64cm and a choice of two additional functions of tilt-in-space and seat lift, the PR25 is a multi-functional powerchair which is easy to manoeuvre due to the modern R-net controls. The powerchair is suitable for all users due to its two maximum user weights of 60kg and 120kg respectively.
In addition to the PR25 and PR40, Precision Rehab will be showcasing several other models from its product portfolio to attending occupational therapists at the dedicated event.
Matthew James, Director of Precision Rehab, commented: “The OT Show is the perfect event for us to launch these two fantastic new powerchairs. We work with OT’s on a daily basis and they play a vital role in the assessment and selection of many of the powerchairs we supply, so to have the opportunity to engage with so many OT’s from across the UK over two days in a relaxed friendly environment is great for us.”
This year’s OT Show takes place on the 27th-28th of November at the NEC in Birmingham.
