Quality, comfort and style. Those are the watchwords as far as the Viper is concerned. The traditional design is of durable construction, helping ensure you feel safe and stable, even on uneven surfaces. Wipe-clean upholstery and solid puncture-proof tyres keep maintenance needs to a minimum for hassle-free ownership. A simple folding mechanism makes it easy to store and practical to take with you in the car.

The ideal aid for independent living

A wheelchair is about more than just helping you get from A to B. It’s a gateway to living life independently on your own terms, whatever mobility challenges you might be facing. The Viper is an affordable option that blends sturdy design with portable convenience. Equally capable around the house or out and about, you’ll feel confident about going where you want when you want in comfort and style.

A smooth ride over any type of surface

Heavy duty construction and 24 inch rear wheels make this one of the sturdiest wheelchairs available. It means it rides whatever bumps might be in your path with ease, and without transmitting every jolt straight up your back, the way some lighter wheelchairs do.Yet that’s not to say it’s a heavyweight. At 18.4kg (41lb) it is still light enough to be manageable and for a single person to lift if necessary.

Add ease and convenience to daily life

Whether you need a wheelchair wherever you go or just as extra help around town or the supermarket, the Viper is a flexible performer that can match your way of life. The seat provides comfort for any user weighing up to 115kg (18 stone) and as for convenience, there’s even a handy pocket for all your essentials, so you won’t be fumbling around for your phone, wallet, glasses and so on every time you need them.

Folds flat - take it with you anywhere 

The Viper has a well-designed folding mechanism that is easy to operate. Once folded, it is only 27cm (11”) wide, so this really is a chair you can take with you anywhere with no need to worry, whether you travel by car, bus or train. It also makes it a great choice if you don’t have a huge amount of spare space at home, as when folded up and tucked away against a wall, you’ll barely know it is there.
