Why choose a custom made wheelchair?
Standard wheelchair sizes do not fit to all people. It is estimated that 80-90% of users do not sit properly in their wheelchair.
Wrong body posture
A standard wheelchair can cause your pelvis and spine to misbehave, which over time could cause serious health problems such as fatigue, pain, infections, tissue damage, respiratory problems and permanent injuries.
Most basic wheelchairs have limited options. This restricts the user from leading a more active life and of course his personal needs are not met.
Feeling uncomfortable reduces your self-confidence and increases your risk for pain and health problems. According to research, the percentage of such cases is 52%.
Large and heavy wheelchair
Unfortunately, not all wheelchairs are optimized to provide the lightest and most optimal solution. They can be large in size or their standard design can unnecessarily add weight which means you will have more trouble pushing it, maneuvering or carrying it.
A heavy wheelchair limits your performance and is difficult to use. You will need to put more energy into manoeuvring and your upper body will work harder. A heavy and large wheelchair can also prevent you from attending your favorite activities, locations and people.
