David Proud Actor “As an actor, writer and presenter each day is different for me. I’m on the road almost all the time in planes, trains and cars. I need a wheelchair that copes with hours of use but still looks as good as it does the day it came out of the factory. My MaxLite has taken some serious punishment from me filming in all kinds of conditions, even in the Alps. It meets every challenge I give it. A truly superb wheelchair for people who want to experience everything life has to offer.”

LIGHTWEIGHT AND COMPACT The lightest possible solution is achieved using individual measurements.
OPTIMUM POSTURE 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.
