A unique partnership between wheelchair manufacturer Innovative Care Solutions and the Disabled Surfers Association of Australia Inc. have after three years completed trials on the newly designed Surf-n-Turf all terrain wheelchair.
The partnership has come up with what they believe to be the best beach wheelchair in the world with interchangeable wheels from balloon tyres to BMX wheels for bush tracks and pathways.
Having a unique rear wheel articulated steering system and four equal sized wheels which allow carers easier access across soft sand conditions and in the right conditions, access into the water, without getting stuck in divots or holes.
The Surf-n-Turf also has adjustable sitting positions and can fold down to become a stretcher for emergency services when suspecting spinal injuries at the beach or in the bush. A handy lifting sling is also part of the design for easier transferring of the disabled. This spectacular beach wheelchair is one of the very few which has a breaking systems for further safety and does not need stabilising bars to prevent flipping backwards.
The Disabled Surfers Association of Australia have tried most beach wheelchairs available on the market over the past three decades with the Surf-n-Turf being the friendliest, easiest, most robust and versatile, as we have had a great deal of input into its design, said Gary Blaschke D.S.A.A. National President.
