Salsa MND Neurochair Powered Wheelchair An evolution of the Quickie Salsa M powered wheelchair with MND clients in mind.
The Quickie Salsa MND Neurochair has been developed in conjunction with the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MND Association) to facilitate easy prescription and best value for MND clients and other similar conditions.
What is Motor Neurone Disease? Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a progressive disease that attacks the motor neurones, or nerves, in the brain and spinal cord. This means messages gradually stop reaching muscles, which leads to weakness and wasting. MND can affect how you walk, talk, eat, drink and breathe. However, not all symptoms necessarily happen to everyone and it is unlikely they will all develop at the same time, or in any specific order. Although there is currently no cure for MND, symptoms can be managed to help you achieve the best possible quality of life. For further information on the symptoms you may experience, please visit the MND Association website here.
The Quickie Salsa MND Neurochair has been developed to overcome the challenges faced by those suffering with the disease. With a multi-adjustable seating system, expandable special controls, easy transfers and the mid-wheel drive base, the Quickie Salsa MND powered wheelchair is intuitive to drive and the perfect combination of indoor manoeuvrability and outdoor performance
