The trivida® is a wheel that can help you move from being dependant on someone to help you transfer from a wheelchair to bed, a lounge, a car or the bathroom – to doing most things yourself.
This is life changing for someone in a wheelchair as well as their carers.
Just think of the difference:
- Having to ask someone for their help when they are available, or waiting for help at specific times of the day
- Having to plan ahead to do basic daily tasks, liking going to the toilet or showering and dressing
- Using your precious energy in an awkward and inefficient way to transfer
- Being dependent on others for many aspects of daily life;
- Being self-sufficient, able to get into or out of bed when you want to
- Greater dignity in relation to personal care and toileting
- Using energy efficiently to transfer quickly and easily
- Feeling a sense of freedom and satisfaction to do things for yourself.
- A barrier free wheelchair can make all the difference – creating independence.
trivida wheels are built with three segments to allow the top segment to be lifted out to let a person using a wheelchair to transfer to another surface (depending on the mobility of the individual). For many people in a wheelchair this is a complete game changer – reducing the need for care and support and providing a whole new outlook on life.
