Powered Wheelchairs

Powered wheelchairs provide a great way of promoting an independent lifestyle, with the performance and manoeuvrability to get you where you want to go. All sorts of models are available, from compact indoor models through to powerful off-roaders, with plenty of versatile all-rounders in between. Whatever your seating needs, there will always be one that suits - from a basic scooter-style seat to a fully bespoke seating system with powered positioning functions.

We provide a complete powerchair service, from initial consultation through to supply and back-up service during the lifetime of your wheelchair. You can see and try our full range of models at our Chessington showroom, or we can arrange to come and visit you for a home demonstration. Our experienced specialists can assess your needs and recommend a suitable product and seating system that matches your medical requirements, which we can then supply either for purchase, hire or on Motability as preferred.

We aim to offer a powered wheelchair to suit every need and budget, with over 50 models available. These range from basic, affordable models for those without complex needs up to high-end custom-built prescriptive models with advanced seating options and powerful outdoor performance.

Try a Powerchair

Our Chessington showroom carries our full range of powered wheelchairs for you to come and try out. Our knowledgeable staff are on-hand to advise you and answer any questions you may have. This includes for prescriptive powerchairs where we can measure you up and run over the full range of options available.

We are also able to carry out in-home assessments, which allows you to try powerchairs around the environment they will be used in.

For those needing high-level pressure care and postural support, one of our partnered Occupational Therapists can also attend assessments. We have a private assessment room at our Chessington site which can be booked if you are visiting us.

For those new to powerchairs, or who are moving to a new model, we recommend trying one out in your daily life. For those reasons, we have a Try Before You Buy scheme that allows you to redeem up to four weeks of short term hire against the purchase or hire cost of a new powerchair. This short term hire product will be set up to match as closely as possible the configuration you are looking to purchase, and allows you to try out a similar product to ensure it meets your needs, before committing to a purchase or long-term hire.

Hire, Purchase and Motability

We offer a range of solutions for getting your ideal powerchair, including:

  • Purchase - own the powerchair of your choice outright from the start - the most cost-effective solution with the widest range of options.

  • Motability - use your Disability Living Allowance or Personal Independence Payment to lease an electric wheelchair.

  • Long-term Hire - worry free mobility, working similarly to the Motability scheme - an ideal option for those not eligible for Motability, or who already have a car on the scheme.

  • Short-term Hire - flexible hire periods, for people with a temporary need or who want to try out a powered wheelchair.

Our Service

As well as the above, we offer:

  • Specialist delivery and set up for all powerchairs, free if purchasing or long-term hiring. We believe it is crucial that powered wheelchairs be delivered and set up by a trained product specialist, who can assess your environment for suitability, adjust your wheelchair to fit, and train you on its use.

  • Our own qualified engineers. Our team of industry-trained engineers carry out all our servicing, maintenance and repairs, either at your address or our fully-equipped Chessington service centre. We don't believe in passing after-sales care onto a third party.

  • Free of charge loan wheelchairs. Your powerchair is crucial to maintaining your independence, and this doesn't change when it is in for repair. We therefore provide a free of charge loan powerchair if you are hiring or purchased from us, to keep you mobile.

  • 3 months free insurance on all purchases. Insuring your powerchair gives you the peace of mind that you are covered should anything untoward happen. We provide 3 months of free insurance for all powered wheelchairs purchased from us, allowing you to get mobile straight away, safe in the knowledge that you are covered from the start.

  • Insurance included for all hires and Motability. When you hire from us, whether on a long or short-term basis, or through Motability, insurance is included as part of your hire at no additional cost.
