Manual wheelchairs

Basic wheelchairs

You may just need a basic wheelchair after a hospital visit, or if a relative or friend is visiting.

We offer both self propelled wheelchairs (the user turns the wheels) or an attendant wheelchair where someone else pushes the user.

Basic wheelchairs are inexpensive and simple to use but will be heavier than purpose built sports wheelchairs.

There is a range of seat widths available and we normally have basic wheelchair cushions available to purchase on site should this also be needed.

Active and sport wheelchairs

Active wheelchairs in Edinburgh

Quickie Helium Northern Ireland from John Preston Healthcare Tel 028 92 67 70 77

Those who use a wheelchair every day will know the difference that a lighter wheelchair will make.

The likes of the active wheelchair range from Quickie include stylish and contemporary wheelchairs that are noticeably lighter than entry models.

You will have control over colour and positioning and style of certain elements such as footrests.

Our Product Specialists are trained to the highest industry standards so will assess you for what type of active wheelchair is right for your needs.

Many of these wheelchairs are compatible with wheelchair power attachments such as the Quickie Attitude range or the Rio Firefly.

Electric or Powerchairs

Electric wheelchairs and Powerchairs

We are particularly experienced in the supply of Electric wheelchairs / Powerchairs. For users that require power we have a wide range of electric wheelchairs that accommodate a wide range of complex needs.

We offer;

  • Rear wheel and mid wheel drive wheelchairs
  • Alternative control systems
  • Eye level power chairs
  • Additional postural support requirements

Our trained Product Specialists will meet with you to assess the needs and then provide information on what products will be suitable.

They are trained to the highest industry standards and regularly work with health professionals as and when  required.

Wheelchair power attachments

Have you seen the Firefly wheelchair power attachment?

The Firefly is a powerful compact electric handbike attachment for use with manual wheelchairs.

Use of the Firefly gives users the ability to go anywhere they want including over rough terrains and up steep gradients.

Firefly compatibility:

The Firefly can attach to almost all wheelchairs with fixed front legs.

This can include folding wheelchairs – as long as the front legs / forks are fixed in place.

The Firefly cannot attach to wheelchairs with ‘swing away’ front legs.

It is compatible with wheelchairs with a seat width between 14″ and 22″.

Firefly Key Features

    • Clips on and off your existing wheelchair in seconds
    • Go twice the speed of a power wheelchair
    • Takes you anywhere you want,
    • including hills and over grass
    • Loads easily in any car
    • Maximum user weight  115kg
    • Silver and black powder coat

Wheelchair Powerpacks

Wheelchair Powerpacks

You may be in a scenario whereby you help push a wheelchair user. For some, this can become dificult over time so you might wish to consider a wheelchair powerpack.

These are generally inexpensive and most fit quite easily to the majority of transit wheelchairs.

The attendant controls the throttle which is attached to the push handle.

We offer a number of options depending on the type of wheelchair and the conditions in which it is used.

Call our friendly team today on 0131 440 3929 for a chat about your needs.

Children’s wheelchairs

We have a wide range of pediatric wheelchairs available in Edinburgh.

As with all customers, we take the time to find out about the child’s requirements and then advise appropriately.

We do of course also provide Electric Wheelchairs for children and younger people.

We have loads of free parking at our mobility showroom
