At Karma Mobility, we understand the challenges that spending some or all of your time in a wheelchair can present. We want to help you overcome these to make life easier.

To ensure that you are ready for anything, we have a range of spares and accessories you can team up with one of our powerchairs or lightweight wheelchairs. Having the right spares around means that you are prepared for life’s inevitable ups and downs. If you rely on your powerchair for independence, you do not want to spend any time stuck at home because you are waiting around for a spare part. You can pre-order spares from Karma Mobility so you have what you need.

Wheels

The wheels on our powerchairs and lightweight wheelchairs are durable and reliable. We have several different types available. You might choose solid plastic wheels as temporary spares to put on if required while you wait for a new standard tyre to arrive.

If you have a self-propelled chair, you need wheels with hand grips on the outer rim. We have standard and ergonomic handles to improve your grip and comfort available.

Foot plates and supports

Foot plates are essential to your comfort when using your wheelchair. Without them, your feet are either dangling in space or scuffing the floor. Foot plates are generally removable to allow for ease of entry and exit from your chair. They also need to be taken out if you intend to fold your wheelchair away. As they are heavily used and removable, they sometimes get either broken or lost and need to be replaced. At Karma Mobility, we stock both footrests and footrest hangers for powerchairs and lightweight wheelchairs so you never need to be without this essential piece of kit.

Elevating leg rests are sometimes necessary for users who need their leg to be permanently or temporarily elevated for any reason. They are also used if the leg needs to be straight. This might be the case if you are required to wear a full leg cast, for example.

Stump supports are important when required as they are key to your balance and security. We have fixed stump supports and quick release versions so you can choose the accessory that is right for you.
