WheelAir, a Glasgow-based mobility company which created the first innovative cooling backrest cushion to stop wheelchair users from overheating, has worked with powerchair specialist Precision Rehab to create a bespoke powerchair.

It is the first joint project for the two companies, which saw the V2 WheelAir cushion integrated on a bespoke Paravan PR50 powerchair.

Established in 2016, WheelAir was the first temperature control system designed specifically for wheelchairs. The device integrates into wheelchair seating systems and gently blows air onto the user’s back, lowering the relative humidity to prevent sweating, keep clothing dry and reduce the user’s body temperature.

Building on the success of its original product, WheelAir announced its new and upgraded V2 cushion last year, which gives users greater choice with more fan speeds, a choice of seating system, a new wireless remote, and 24-hour battery life.

Now, WheelAir has teamed up with Precision Rehab to create a bespoke powered wheelchair solution.

Precision Rehab was established in 2015 to address the lack of specialist powered wheelchairs available in the UK marketplace. Precision Rehab supplies its products on a direct sales basis and using authorised dealers throughout the UK and Ireland to ensure a high standard of assessment, sales process and after-sales care.

In December, the company appointed two new experienced members to its growing team, expanding its coverage across England and Scotland.

The Precision Rehab Paravan PR50 powerchair boasts a wide variety of features including three different headrest options, a multifunctional joystick control, lift function, adjustable armrests and footrests, seat slide and the ability to turn on the spot.

As part of the assessment and design process for a bespoke Paravan PR50, Precision Rehab Director Matthew James contacted WheelAir to ask if it would be possible to integrate WheelAir into the back of the powerchair without impacting or losing any of the functions, such as electric recline and adjustable lumber supports.

According to WheelAir, the project has been a “resounding success”, with Precision Rehab’s client being pleased with their new bespoke Paravan PR50 powerchair with a WheelAir adjustable airflow system.

WheelAir says it looks forward to collaborating with Precision Rehab again in the future.
