The strength and stability of steel

The Optima’s powder coated steel frame gives you strength and stability without a huge increase in carry weight. So while it might be harder to lift than an aluminium self-propelled wheelchair, the trade off is a smoother ride over rough ground. It’s got a high weight limit, too, capable of carrying up to 18 stone (114kg).

Blends right in with your lifestyle

It might look a bit no-frills, but nothing about the Optima skimps on what makes a functional, comfortable and convenient wheelchair. It folds for compact storage whether at home or in the boot of your car. And if you need the help of an attendant, it also sports ergonomic handles and a rear stepper tube for any kerbs you might come across. It's simple, sure. But for effortless everyday travel? Nothing beats it.

Enjoy every journey in comfort

You don't need to settle for a rickety old wheelchair. Take a seat in the Optima and let the padded armrests take the strain off your elbows and wrists. The swing away footrests help you avoid awkward transfers in and out of the chair, and the nylon upholstery stands up well to frequent use. There's even a backrest pouch perfect for keeping your essentials close at hand. 

Get going right away

The Optima Wheelchair comes fully assembled, so you won't be contending with fiddly screws before you can get out and about. Pop the removable leg rests on and you're all set. Whether you're behind the handlebars as an attendant or propelling yourself from A to B, the Optima is one of those mobility aids that does exactly what you need it to. A truly reliable, comfortable and durable wheelchair made for everyday use.
