    Paravan PR50 Evolution Wheel Chair

    Good Evening,

    Has anyone got or used the Paravan PR50 Evolution Power Chair?

    It looks to have all the functions required for MND and looks really cool in all the different colours

    Thanks

    Hi dkjc,

    I haven't used one, but I have noticed that there is a company, based in England, called 'Steering Developments' that offers a free home demonstration service. Just in case you don't already have their details, here is a link to their website:-

    http://http://www.steeringdevelopments.co.uk/products/electric-wheelchairs/paravan-wheelchair-range

    I agree with you, they do look like ultra cool high-tech wheelchairs.

    Hopefully, someone on this forum has used one - because it would be great to hear if they are as good as the look!

    Best wishes,
    Kayleigh

    Hi dkyc;

    THe wheelchair services should be getting you a suitable wheelchair free and it's worth speaking to Mnda connect, as they might be able to hurry it along and maybe help upgrade it if needed.

    G\et referred very soon as there is often a waiting list.

    Love Terry

    Hi Terry thank you not quite ready for a wheelchair yet just researching what is out there, although I did ask my OT today about when to send a referral and they told me to speak with my GP

    Hi dkjc;

    Get things in-motion, if you do want something special, the wheelchair services should give you a voucher but you have to sign away their services for 3 or 5 years and go it alone.

    All this takes loads of time.

    I love those shows.

    Love Terry

    Hi Terry Thank You - I am going to - quite lucky my left foot and leg are affected but this upsets my balance so much I am looking to get a walker that converts into a wheel chair - the Rollz Motion - looks cool and and in 4 colours this should allow me to continue walking but when tired have a seat and be pushed home best of both worlds! This will also be on display at the Naidex show really looking forward to it to see all the other adaptations and test out a few things!

    Hi dkjc;

    Involve your OT as there will provide a basic walker with a seat. Not sure you have a choice of colour though. They are not so good as others in that they don't fold up quite so small etc.

    They can provide 3 and 4 wheeled ones. There's nothing stopping you from buying one as well, as it's always nice to have a spare in the car etc.

    Love Terry

    Hi dkjc,

    As part of your research about suitable wheelchairs, you might be interested to read the following advice and information on the MNDA website (it also includes a short video):-

    http://https://www.mndassociation.org/forprofessionals/mndmanagement/wheelchairs-for-mnd/types-of-wheelchair-for-mnd/

    I hope you enjoy the Naidex event at the NEC, when you go there later this month.

    Best wishes,
    Kayleigh
