The event will also provide more information about the cabin assessments that are available at three locations around the UK – QEF Mobility Services based in Carshalton, the Regional Driving Assessment Centre in Birmingham and the William Merritt Disabled Living Centreand Mobility Service, Leeds. Each centre has access to a replica section of aircraft fuselage so travellers can trial and compare accessibility and assistive solutions in a realistic environment.
In conjunction with this, TGA will be showcasing their award-winning range of mobility scooters, wheelchair and powerpacks, which continue to provide assured independence for people across the UK living with restricted mobility. The folding range of TGA Minimo scooters provide maximum transportability as they are compact, lightweight and easy to store. They can be folded single-handedly in seconds and do not require any parts to be dismantled for storage – hence providing hassle-free independence when travelling by car, bus, train or plane. On arrival owners can benefit from use of their own familiar scooter without any compromise to independence. This is why the Minimo, Minimo Plus and new Minimo Plus 4 continue to grow in popularity and are ideal for air travel – as will be demonstrated by Tryb4uFly at The Mobility Roadshow. Read more….

TGA, the trusted specialist in mobility scooters and wheelchairs, will be unveiling its revolutionary new award-winning WHILL powered wheelchair at The 2017 Mobility Roadshow (NAEC Stoneleigh, 1-3 June 2017, Hall 1, stand B6 and Test Track).
For over 30 years TGA has innovated in the mobility sector and its new WHILL powerchair represents a further reiteration of this renowned heritage. WHILL from TGA is a pioneering electric wheelchair known as a ‘Personal Electric Vehicle’ (PEV) – it is sleek, compact, hi-tech and delivers levels of manoeuvrability never seen before in the UK. Developed in Japan by former Toyota and Nissan engineers, WHILL has been in production for 18 months however it is being introduced to the UK market for the first time by TGA. WHILL is a next generation product that encapsulates a new concept in contemporary independent living.
In addition to trustworthy 4-wheel-drive (4WD) performance WHILL encompasses revolutionary all directional drive and kerb climbing front wheels – a world first for powerchair design. The pioneering drivability and remarkable comfort and stability provided by WHILL can be experienced first-hand on the TGA test track at The Mobility Roadshow.
WHILL is the ideal powerchair for style conscious individuals who are seeking greater independence at home, at work or when travelling. Conventional powered wheelchair design has been replaced by a cutting-edge PEV concept that is streamlined and modern – built with the latest technology and a precision finish.
The all-directional front wheels encompass 24 rollers that rotate sideways when turning WHILL – resulting in lateral movement without the need for a rotating castor. This means WHILL can turn 360 degrees on its own axis – delivering a turning circle of a mere 71cm. These patented 9.8’ wheels also have the ability to climb 3’’ kerbs so urban and city environments are now more accessible than ever.
When users are not benefiting from remarkable manoeuvrability in lifts, shops and offices, WHILL has the capability to power over rougher rural terrain. Traditionally sand and gravel have proven extremely challenging for powered wheelchairs with most products unable to function on these surfaces – WHILL rewrites this convention. With its powerful 4WD drive system and large 12.5’’ rear wheels it can negotiate uneven surfaces and propel users up a 10-degree slope without loss of stability or traction. Read more….
