To help you meet your needs, we have four different beach wheelchairs available, one for children, 2 for adults and a beach walker. When you call to book with us, we will chat through the options available to ensure that where possible the wheelchair that you choose meets your needs. The available wheelchairs are:
|We have a medium sized Hippocampe wheelchair suitable for children and small adults. It is low to the ground, so perfect for getting close to the sand and sea. Our chair has an arm rest, leg rest, lap strap, chest harness and head rest. We also have a vacuum seating system to provide a high level of stability and comfort.|
|A Nomad beach wheelchair. This is a light weight adult beach wheelchair which has seating similar to a standard wheelchair and suitable for those with good balance when seated.|
|An adult's deBug. This chair is tilt in space. It has lateral supports, head rest, leg and foot rests and an arm rest which can move to the side to assist transfers.|
|A Joy on the Beach walker with a flip down seat.|
