Surrey-based TGA Living will be showcasing a selection of its quality mobility products at the Get Going Live! event being held by QEF Mobility Services at the Carshalton based Driving Assessment Centre.
The first in a series of free-to-attend regional Get Going Live! exhibitions, attendees to this relaunched exhibition will be able to safely test drive a range of accessible and adapted vehicles around a dedicated test track with qualified specialist instructors. The event will provide the opportunity for visitors and their families, including teenagers from the age of 15, to try adapted driving for the first time and explore options for accessible motoring. They will also be able to see a selection of equipment innovations from leading product specialists such as TGA Living.
"We are looking forward to exhibiting at Get Going Live!, it was always such a popular feature of the National Mobility Roadshow," Roseannie Finch, TGA Living Manager says. "It provides the unique opportunity to test drive WAVs and see the latest assistive innovations, such as our award-winning products.
"I’m sure our new WHILL Model C powerchair will be a real show-stopper. We believe exhibiting at regional events such as this are so important for TGA Living as it provides us with the opportunity to meet people face-to-face and discuss individual mobility needs. We focus on this approach every day at TGA Living so independence and peace of mind are maximised through correct product provision.”
What products will be on show?
- New TGA WHILL Model C Powerchair – the pioneering, technologically advanced solution with stunning styling and transportable abilities
- TGA Minimo mobility scooter – the best-selling car boot scooter that folds in seconds
- TGA wheelchair powerpacks – the proven range for powered assistance of attendant controlled wheelchairs
- A selection of aids for independent living including walkers and shower stools.
