Product of the Year 2019: Recare
Product of the Year: Light Drive2 from Benoit System
Annie Holland-Oakes, Marketing and Motability Specialist at Recare
“The Product of the Year in 2019 for me would be the Benoit System! Following our takeover of the distribution for this product throughout the UK, it has sparked a great national interest in such a short amount of time, aided by its ease and overall practicality for manual wheelchair users.
“Benoit System is lightweight and easily removable from the rear of the chair for transportation, providing greater independence to a much wider audience than alternative add-on solutions. With the joystick function on the Light Drive2 model, it makes the use of a wheelchair with a power add-on more diverse, with people that are dominant on one side not having to rely on a one-arm drive wheel system.
“With this adaptation on the chair, it does not involve increasing the footprint on the ground, making the turning circle as close to that of just the manual wheelchair as possible.
“With the capability to be used on a paediatric chair through to a bariatric model, the diversity is vast, making this product more inclusive to a wider audience. Functioning on the movement of the rear wheels alone, there are fewer wearable parts for the ongoing user to maintain than an average power add-on product.
“Overall, this is an exceptionally smart looking piece of equipment that ensures the individual in the chair is seen rather than the chair itself. Needing minimal movement to enable control is practical and functional for a wide range of clients to be able to use, it is lightweight and transportable to keep clients from requiring a wheelchair accessible vehicle.”
