GUIDANCE NOTES FOR SPORT & ADVENTURE
Our motto is that “You don’t have to be a paralympian” to take part in sport and other physical activities and we certainly want to enable you to get on and enjoy your adventures with minimal fuss and maximum enjoyment.
Researchers have reported that disabled people who take part in sports and other physical recreation report a higher standard of satisfaction with life than those disable people that do not. (Source Wheelchair Sport: A Complete Guide for Athletes, Coaches, and Teachers edited by Vicky Goosey-Tolfrey). Physical recreation can also help build confidence, fitness, broaden your social circle and of course it can also be great fun.
There are a wealth of paralympian sports that you can take part in but of course you might just want to use your wheelchair to enjoy more sedate pursuits like fishing, or prefer to be more energetic and go rambling in woody areas with your family. Obviously the type of wheelchair you choose can be critical to allow you to expand the boundaries of what you can do.
The Mybility All Terrain wheelchair range can enable you to take part in activities on challenging terrains like grass, mud, cobbles, steep slopes, rocky areas and steps. It can also cope with sand and snow too. Furthermore our flexible electronic seating systems allows you to replicate a standing postion, lay down flat or virtually any other position in between. So for example you can also use your wheelchair to get up into a standing position to play golf, or lie down flat to sun bathe or use the seat riser to get up higher to play games like archery or darts. We also have horse riders who use the wheelchair and find the seat riser and standing position very useful when dealing with the horse.
Fully Adaptable Wheelchairs
Our wheelchairs are fully adaptable and come with a wide range of accessories to ensure that you are able to enjoy your activities with the best support for your disability. Our wheelchair experts are able to do many of the adaptations themselves and have also invented a length compensating chin control for users with limited or no use of their hands.
