Sophie’s Octane FX

Why did she get an OctaneFX?

"Over the years of being in a wheelchair I’ve realised what is most important to me. It has to be super streamlined, it needs to fit me snugly and be elegant in its appearance. As an athlete, your body naturally changes and it's amazing to have the ability to fine tune my measurements to the millimeter. I wanted a more compact chair overall and because I travel so much, the Octane FX was the perfect choice.

What was the end result?

"I didn't think I would be able to improve my seating position until I got into my new Octane FX. It fits me perfectly, and I feel so much more confident in myself. I never thought small changes would have such a big impact day to day. It's easier to push, lighter and now I can fold it up and take it everywhere! Plus it's so pretty... I honestly feel amazing in my Octane FX"

Why choose made to measure?

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

The effects

  • 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.
  • OPTIMUM COMFORT
    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.
  • MAXIMISED PERFORMANCE
    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.
