TGA, a popular supplier of quality wheelchairs and powerchairs for all ages, has successfully debuted its award-winning new WHILL C personal electric vehicle (EV) at Kidz-to-Adultz South – being held in Farnborough for the first time.
Debuting at Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre, Kidz South provided the opportunity for young people with disabilities, families and healthcare professionals to see the latest in assistive products and services. This modern and accessible venue delivered a fresh experience and attracted new visitors who had not previously attended a Kidz event. They were able to discuss wheelchair needs on a one-to-one basis with the specialist TGA Product Advisors who also explained the assessment-led service they provide. TGA works closely with Occupational Therapists so that the most appropriate wheelchairs are provided so that comfort, safety and well-being are maximised for occupants and carers.
The new WHILL C from TGA represents a breakthrough in mobility product design for style-conscious young people. It is a compact, lightweight and beautifully designed solution that delivers unsurpassed manoeuvrability, performance and comfort. It can be easily dismantled into three easy-to-lift components so transportability in a vehicle is hassle-free. WHILL C is an ‘ultra-cool’ personal EV that provides maximum inclusion in all work, educational and social environments.
Alongside the new WHILL C and the popular four-wheel-drive WHILL M, TGA showcased its lightweight and ergonomic StrongBack wheelchairs. Encompassing contoured backrests for effective lumbar support, the StrongBack is a proven quality wheelchair that solves the majority of occupant needs without bespoke adjustment.
Eric Cooper, TGA Wheelchair Specialist commented: “Both our WHILL powerchairs and StrongBack wheelchairs generated healthy levels of interest from visiting OTs, families and young people living with disabilities. Our new eye-catching WHILL C definitely turned heads as there is no other affordable product of its kind in the UK – its transportable design and contemporary styling are outstanding. Kidz South was a positive experience for us and the visitors we met, especially as the event has just moved to a new, more spacious venue. We look forward to completing the many assessment requests regarding our products and seeing the benefits they deliver.”
