Precision Rehab to showcase powerchair display at OT Show
On stand B42 at The OT Show, Precision Rehab will be exhibiting a range of powerchairs as to company looks to engage with occupational therapists and their clients.
Precision will be showing its UPnRIDE, Paravan PR50, Paravan PR30 Evo II and Paravan Piccolino powerchairs as well as Sunrise’s Q700 UP M powered wheelchair, which the company recently added to its portfolio.

Its low seat height of 445mm also allows the chair to fit under tables and into wheelchair accessible vehicles easily.
Matthew James, Co-Director at Precision Rehab, commented: “We are delighted to once again be exhibiting at the OT Show.
“The two-day event is a fantastic platform for us to showcase and demonstrate our range of powered wheelchairs to OT’s from around the UK and discuss their client’s requirements and book assessments in a relaxed and friendly environment.”
At the event, Precision will also be displaying its Paravan PR50, which is designed to work in domestic, working or care settings. It is the only powered wheelchair in the UK to feature an integrated seat belt, have EU approval, be crash tested and TUV certified.
The PR50 is equipped to take respiration apparatus, including special headrests and extra power supply, and can be operated safely by disabled people due to its adapted special control unit.
Described as “highly manoeuvrable” by the company, the chair’s width is 64cm, so it can fit through most doorways and lifts.
