Discover the Benefits of Made-to-Measure Wheelchairs at Adaptiv Sports!

The Challenges

Typical Measurements: Have you ever¬†felt restricted by one-size-fits-all wheelchair options? You’re not alone! Around 80-90% of wheelchair users don’t find a proper fit with configurable standard sizes.

Restricted Choices:  Some wheelchairs lack versatility and can limit your ability to stay active. Basic designs with few options might not cater to your individual needs.

Bulky Materials: Not all wheelchairs are designed for efficiency. Some use cumbersome materials and have a modular design, making them heavy and requiring more effort to push, manoeuvre, and lift.

The Impact

Poor Posture: Ill-fitting wheelchairs force your pelvis and spine into uncomfortable positions, potentially leading to health issues like fatigue, pain, infections, and respiratory problems.

Being uncomfortable not only affects your confidence but also increases the risk of health problems and pain, as reported by 59% of people with spinal cord injuries.

Fatigue and Stress: A heavy wheelchair can limit performance and make it challenging to use. More energy is needed to propel and manoeuvre, increasing fatigue and stress on the upper body.

The Solution: Made-to-Measure Wheelchairs

At Adaptiv Sports, we believe in your uniqueness, and our made-to-measure wheelchairs are designed with that in mind. Here’s why they’re the perfect fit for you:

Personalised Measurements: Our clinician will take multiple measurements of you and your wheelchair to design and build a solution that perfectly fits your unique requirements.

Comfort-focused Choices: Choose various functional and ergonomic options for optimal comfort, balance, and posture.

Lightweight and Compact: Our made-to-measure wheelchairs prioritise the lightest and most efficient solutions, using high-quality materials and rigid frame designs.

Why Made-to-Measure?

Posture: Sitting in the correct position significantly reduces the risk of pressure-related issues. Good health promotes an active lifestyle, positively impacting your overall well-being.

Comfort: Feeling comfortable boosts confidence, helping you achieve an active lifestyle with a reduced likelihood of prolonged discomfort, pain, or persistent injuries.

Performance: You and your wheelchair work in complete harmony. This synergy reduces the energy needed to propel, maximizing efficiency and unlocking your full potential. Choose Adaptiv Sports for a wheelchair tailored to you!
