Mobility solutions provider Rehasense UK has added the Icon 35 lightweight aluminium wheelchair range to its growing product portfolio, with models that can be easily folded for transportation.

Weighing only 8.2 kilograms, the Icon 35 BX is the lightest wheelchair in the Icon range and features an ergonomic seat and back angle to provide a superb seating position.

The Icon 35 LX, which weighs nine kilograms, is fitted with enhanced ergonomic seating, back upholstery and adjustable arm rests for increased levels of support and pressure relief if required.

Both models have seat widths of 40cm and 45cm respectably and for transportation and storage can be easily folded and take up little space with compact length, height and width dimensions of  66x73x27cm.

More information on both of the new models can be found on the Rehasense website but standard features on the Icon 35 BX and LX include swing-away leg rests with release lever, stepwise brake control with cable, armrest (height adjustable on the LX) and carrying handle for transporting when folded.

Lee French, Managing Director, Rehasense UK commented: “We are continually looking to support our UK retailers and their customers with quality products and believe these latest models will prove popular with retailers, OT’s and end users as they offer a superb lightweight manual wheelchair solution along with excellent value for money.

“With the latest government announcements, we are looking forward to meeting with our retailers face to face in the near future and demonstrating these great new products.”

The mobility aids supplier recently announced that it is looking to increase its UK retailer network this year as part of its planned growth. As part of its expansion plans, the firm recently opened a new purpose-built UK headquarters and warehouse facility to enable it to offer a 24-hour delivery service to retailers.
