The TGA StrongBack is a very well designed and manufactured wheelchair and is of the excellent quality typical of TGA products. It is specially designed to give proper postural back support that fits the spines natural curvature. This is particularly important for anyone who is prone to back pain and discomfort; who tends to slump or slide forward in the chair; or who must sit in the chair for prolonged periods. The modern elliptical frame is made from lightweight aluminium and weighs only 11.3kg making it easier for carers, friends, or family to manoeuvre and transport without damaging their back.
It folds to a compact shape, with the backrest flat against the frame making it easier to store in the boot of a small car or in the home. The footrests also fold up out of the way, meaning that they do not need to be detached unlike the footrests found on many traditional wheelchairs. This means that you will never lose them. As a premium wheelchair, the StrongBack is more expensive than basic wheelchairs but feedback from users is excellent and they suggest that it is well worth the investment.
