Following this, the next step is to book a free home demonstration at a date and time that suits you best with one of our mobility specialists. This will include a test drive in your local area and you may want to bring a partner/friend along, especially if they are going to be travelling with you or are of course the driver.

During the demonstration, we will use manual wheelchair restraints so that you are completely safe to travel in your wheelchair. Plus, you / your partner/PA will also be fully insured to take an accompanied test drive too.
