Our wheelchairs

To help you meet your needs, we have four different beach wheelchairs available, one for children, 2 for adults and a beach walker. When you call to book with us, we will chat through the options available to ensure that where possible the wheelchair that you choose meets your needs. The available wheelchairs are:

Ethan and Alison

We have a medium sized Hippocampe wheelchair suitable for children and small adults. It is low to the ground, so perfect for getting close to the sand and sea. Our chair has an arm rest, leg rest, lap strap, chest harness and head rest. We also have a vacuum seating system to provide a high level of stability and comfort.
