Many of the brands we stock, in particular our range of Quickie and Helium wheelchairs, are optimised for use in sport and active lifestyles, sporting the low backs, super-lightweight frames and a wheel distribution designed to provide maximum freedom of movement, mobility and speed without tiring the occupant. However, while excellent for an active user or one who will be taking part in athletics, sports or other intense physical pursuits, our other lightweight wheelchair stock provide arguably greater upper back support and may therefore be more solid choices for long periods of use, dependent on your requirements.
Our everyday-use chairs include models by industry firebrands Ergo, Martin and Econ. They are lightweight folding wheelchairs that offer a specially designed seat shape which ensures good posture and a rugged reliability. This has made them favourites among our customers for years. These chairs are comfortable and easy on the back and neck even after prolonged periods, removing a lot of the need to get out of them and find more suitable seating as you go about your day.
They retain the ease of movement and effortless manoeuvrability of their sportier cousins, and are easy to store, fold and modify – but several also offer storage space, a robust frame and handles for an attendant to help the rider move around and take the strain off them for a while.
Whether you’re looking for a sturdy, durable frame with storage space, attendant push handles and a big, cushioned back, or a sleek, athletic model with superior mobility and super-lightweight body parts, Millercare has the chair for you – and if it’s one of our lightweight wheelchairs, you can guarantee that high-tech, feather-light materials, unbeatable mobility, tough construction and fold-up, easy storage will come as standard.
