At Fortuna Mobility, we understand that for many people, a wheelchair can make a big difference to independence, freedom, comfort and ease when getting out and about. We think it’s extremely important that you choose the right wheelchair for your needs. Our range of standard wheelchairs have been selected for their comfort, ease of use, reliability and easy maintenance.
However, some people have more specialized needs and we can supply wheelchairs for most situations. The main types are:

Self-propelled Tilt in Space Wheelchair
Lightweight Folding Transit Tilt in Space Wheelchair
These wheelchairs are mainly used by those who are in their wheelchair for most of the day and are set up to the user’s exact wishes. The chairs are generally ultra-lightweight and can be configured differently according to whether manoeuvrability or comfort and stability are the prime requirement.
The range of options is huge and includes: height, weight, cushioning, lateral support, footplates, wheels, grip and more. They can also be set up as attendant or purely self-propelled.
These chairs are sophisticated and highly bespoke therefore a thorough assessment by an expert is essential. Phone us to arrange a visit.
At Fortuna Mobility we stock transit, self-propelled and tilt in space wheelchairs in paediatric sizes but if something more specific is needed we can provide advice and arrange an assessment and have the wheelchair made to measure.
