The junior Etac electric wheelchairs on display included examples from the E800 series, Balder range and the specialist Balder XP model. Balder powered wheelchairs offer market-leading levels of mobility, comfort and independence for young individuals living with disability through world-class design and ergonomics. They incorporate a wide range of powered and controlled functionality that can move the user into a variety of positions including standing, lying, or reclining in a ‘tilt-in-space’ configuration.
