- Jun. 19, 2014 - READING, U.K. --
The line-up of Etac electric wheelchairs on display included examples from the highly respected junior Balder range and the specialist XP model. Balder powered wheelchairs from Etac provide remarkable levels of mobility, comfort and independence for young individuals living with disability through world-leading design and ergonomics.
They incorporate a wide range of powered and controlled functionality that can move the user into a variety of positions including standing, lying, or reclining in a ‘tilt-in-space’
configuration. Through highly respected Scandinavian design, Balder powered wheelchairs are trusted by large numbers of children, young adults and families across the UK – backed-up by proven UK-wide after sales support.
The Etac UK team at Kidz South was delighted to welcome high numbers of visitors onto stand 304 who were interested in learning more about the Balder range. Ian Carter, Etac UK Managing Director commented: “The Kidz events are always busy for Etac UK, however this year’s Kidz South in Reading appeared to be attended by larger numbers than the 2013 event. As we work closely with Occupational Therapists and families nationwide, the exhibition gave us the ideal opportunity to engage with existing contacts and clients whilst introducing the Balder range to new customers.”
Ian added: “Our Balder XP powered wheelchair, (http://www.etac.com/en/etaccomuk/Start-Page/Junior-powerc...
) with its specialist R82 seating system, provided specific interest from many visitors as its design is so unique in the marketplace. The postural support and seating flexibility it provides is exceptional along with a fun, vibrant look. Another junior Balder model that generated significant interest was the F290J with standing functionality. This world-class, robust electric wheelchair provides all the powered movement and manoeuvrability required by even the most active disabled children and teenagers. We look forward to demonstrating these models once more at Kidz North in Manchester on 20th November.”
