David Proud
“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.”

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.
