Considering a new wheelchair is a big decision to make. There are so many different types of wheelchairs out there for you to choose from. Here at Karma Mobility, we love to help people find exactly the right wheelchair for them.

When shopping for normal consumer products, we’re faced with the same amount of choices, but it’s not often that they can impact so much on your life. We can provide two types of wheelchairs here at Karma Mobility, first is the lightweight wheelchair.

These chairs are propelled either by yourself or your carer and can be folded away for transit and storage. The other type of wheelchair is the powerchair. Some powerchairs can be folded and some can’t. These types of chairs are powered by powerful electric batteries.

Considering lightweight wheelchairs?

If you’re considering a lightweight wheelchair we provide a wide range to suit almost every type of user. Factors like age, body type, function and what you want to do in your chair need to be taken into account to find the right chair for you.

All of our lightweight wheelchairs are made to be foldable so that if you need to travel regularly or need to store your wheelchair, it’s easy and simple to do so.

We offer a range of accessories to personalise your lightweight wheelchair. Many of these accessories offer big boosts in practicality and usability.

A powerchair for ultimate freedom

Many wheelchair users also don’t have full use of their arms. A powerchair offers a solution that can give these people their independence back. Being able to go out of the house without a carer can change someone’s life.

We provide a wide range of powerchairs to fit all shapes and sizes. Our aim is to find a chair that fits you so well that you are comfortable, confident and have your independence.

We also provide a wide range of accessories to personalise your powerchair to give it added practicality and functionality. We pride ourselves on providing solutions to as many mobility problems as we can to help people get back to a great quality of life.
