Cheelcare Companion Try-it Day

Cheelcare is coming to Variety!

Companion Power Assist for Manual Wheelchairs.

Cheelcare is coming to Variety!
Join us June 29 from 10-3pm to try Cheelcare’s Power Assist System for Adult and Pediatric Users – the Companion.

The Companion is an innovative electric add-on to any manual wheelchair. Lightweight, easy to install the device can power a wheelchair to 24 kpm for up to 3 hours on one charge. It is also a fraction of the cost of an electric wheelchair, easy to manoeuver and covered by the government Assistive Devices Program.

Exceed your reach with our innovative electric-powered add-on!
See the Companion in Action!

Martha was recently gifted a Companion from the founders of Cheelcare, Roy Ellis, along with his wife Mary. If you haven’t noticed yet, you will find Martha making her way around the village outfitted with her new power assist.

We are happy to have helped coordinate the donation to Martha and look forward to working closely with Cheelcare to help provide affordable mobility options to those who need them.

If you are in a manual wheelchair, or know someone who is, check out the Companion. It is an elegant solution to power a wheelchair that is very affordable.
