The Strongback wheelchair from TGA offers a lightweight, folding design combined with an effective, everyday posture support seat. Designed with both the occupant and carer in mind, this is the perfect chair for those who sit for long periods of time in their chair and require an attendant to push them.
Poor posture is a regular issue affecting wheelchair users, particularly those who spend a large proportion of their day in their wheelchair. The technology behind the design of the Strongback provides an evolution of the standard wheelchair design. An ergonomic lumbar support is integrated into the the frame of the wheelchair while the seat angle aligns the pelvis for proper ergonomic posture and prevents slipping and slouching forwards. The seating surface also moulds itself around the body which helps improve circulation and reduces pressure without the need for bulky cushions.
Designed also with the carer in mind, the Strongback folds down in matter of seconds for easy storage and transportation. With a backrest which folds completely flat against the frame and footrests which easily fold and lock out of harm's way, the Strongback takes up minimal storage space.
With carefully spaced push handles to offer the optimum pushing stance, the Strongback gives the carer maximum control over the chair when out and about. The puncture proof tyres and attendant controlled brakes complete the impressive specifications of the Strongback and make it the perfect chair for a wide range of users.
For those looking to purchase a powerpack, the Strongback is the ideal companion to our range of TGA Powerpacks and can be combined with any size of powerpack in there and with ease.
