The new standard in Electric Wheelchairs
The Paravan Wheelchair features unique capabilities including huge motorised elevation and tilt ranges and other adjustments that make the Paravan wheelchair extremely versatile. Among other uses, it assists in reaching a high shelf, allows you to travel at standing head height at a concert or bar or to travel reasonably off road, can relieve pressure points and assists in standing/transfers.
This versatility makes the Paravan Wheelchair perfect for wheelchair self-drive. Our solutions can be fully tailored when using this wheelchair and so PME specifically recommends use of the Paravan Electric wheelchair in these conversions.
Designed with self-drive
operations in mind, the Paravan Wheelchair has its own integrated robust docking station for self-drive available.
It also features a crash tested vehicle seat with an integrated 3 point seat belt (optional 4 point available) and scope to accommodate pressure relieving cushions.
Seat elevation has a massive range from a Low of 340mm to a Max Height of 800mm measured from the ground to the base of the seat. Despite this huge range however, the mechanism has been robustly engineered by Paravan’s German design team, to minimise any rock or movement, even when at full elevation.
The Paravan Wheelchair features fore and aft seat movement on the seat base tracks of 200mm, providing fantastic versatility for driving, by making minor seat adjustments for comfort easy, and for a range of other activities such as tucking yourself in at the table so that you can comfortably reach.
The Paravan Wheelchair is incredibly flexible with almost any possible adjustment available and motorised. The backrest angle can be adjusted up to 20 degrees forwards and 90 degrees backwards. It is possible for the entire seat to undergo a weight-shifting rearward tilt of 50 degrees which can be used to provide pressure relief. It can also perform an anterior tilt up to 20 degrees which, in conjunction with powered footplates and elevation, has enabled clients with motor-neuron disabilities to enter chair without difficulty.
All powered adjustments are driven my Swiss made, powerful, efficient motors and are controlled with the highly popular New Zealand made Dynamic DX2 control system
