“I love my RGK Chrome wheelchair, I’ve had it three years now. Was made to measure and feels a part of me! Great job.”
Gareth Clarke

Why choose made to measure?

    Over 30 individual measurements are taken of the user for the wheelchair, so that it fits their individual requirements.
    A wide range of ergonomic options are available to provide optimum comfort, balance and posture.
    The lightest possible solution is achieved using individual measurements.

The effects

    Sitting in the correct position can significantly reduce the risks of developing pressure related issues in the short and long term. Good health helps promote a more active lifestyle which in turn can positively impact a user’s well-being.
    Feeling comfortable increases confidence which helps the user to achieve an active lifestyle. The likelihood of developing prolonged discomfort, pain and persistent injuries are significantly reduced.
    The user and wheelchair work in complete unison. This reduces the amount of energy needed to propel and in turn increases the wheelchair’s efficiency to maximize the user’s abilities.
