Buy a TGA Wheelchair Power Pack

TGA Wheelchair Power Pack

If you are anything like me, you’ll know how hard it can be to push a manual wheelchair, and that’s why we use a TGA wheelchair power pack.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve struggled to push Bridget’s chair up an incline. And more recently, I’ve been struggling even on flat surfaces, especially since my recent health problems, which you can read about in Can This Really Be Fibromyalgia and I Have Been Diagnosed with Heart Failure, Am I Going to Die?

Often, we carers are too proud to ask for help. But, let’s be honest, if we need help, we shouldn’t let our pride get in the way of asking for it because if we get ill, that has a knock-on effect on the person we’re caring for.

I think I’m at the stage where I need to admit I’m struggling, and my inability to push the wheelchair is impacting Bridget, not least because it’s interfering with our ability to bimble.

Therefore, I’m actively looking for help, and I think the TGA Wheelchair Power Pack could be it.

From what I can tell, the TGA range of power packs is one of the best solutions for pushing a manual wheelchair. It won’t suit everyone, some people prefer a mobility scooter or electric wheelchair, but it could make a difference for some of you. I know it could work for me. Note: other wheelchair power packs are available

So, let me introduce you to the TGA wheelchair power pack range or wheelchair mover, as I like to call them. I was first introduced to wheelchair movers when Bridget was measured up for a new wheelchair, and as far as I’m concerned, they’re certainly something to consider; I know I am.

The TGA Wheelchair Power Pack

The TGA website explains that their wheelchair power packs have been designed to fit most manual wheelchairs. It also demonstrates that the unit is designed to take the strain out of pushing the chair on all surfaces, which sounds good to me.

Also, and this is important, to operate the power pack, you use the thumb lever, and off you go.

With an advertised speed of up to 4 mph and a range of up to 10 miles on a full charge, the freedom and health benefits a wheelchair power pack can offer sound fantastic. And, as we’re all different, TGA has designed four other power packs to suit most wheelchair users.

Wheelchair Power Pack Solo

Described as “by far one of the most technically advanced, carer controlled wheelchair power pack on the market. The pack is light enough to take anywhere, ideal for days out in the car or on public transport and is suitable for moving users up to **18 stone.”

Wheelchair Power Pack Duo

The twin wheel duo is the best option for those of us who demand more from our wheelchair (that’s us) or need extra traction because of the types of terrain we travel on.

Wheelchair Power Pack Duo HD

The duo HD power pack is ideal for heavier wheelchair users (up to **26 stone). Still easy to fit and uninstall and with a reverse option as standard, the twin wheel duo HD carries a lot of punch and power in such a small pack.

Wheelchair Power Pack Plus

The Power Pack Plus is the unit for you for ultimate power, traction, and sheer pushing power. This is the latest addition to the TGA range of power packs and is capable of efficiently and confidently moving chair users up to **32 stone.

TGA Wheelchair Power Pack Plus

Common to all units is that they are:

  • Incredibly easy to install and remove
  • Easy to use
  • Designed and made in the UK
  • Two-year parts & labour warranty

Each unit comes with a fully automatic charger which plugs into the sealed and maintenance-free battery, charges, and you’re ready for your next adventure.

I’m sure you’ll agree that these wheelchair power packs from TGA really could make a world of difference to the way we travel.

I don’t know about you, but I’m sold. The next thing I need to do is figure out how I will pay for it?

Important Notes
*Range of power packs can vary depending on the user’s weight and travel conditions (such as terrain).
**Due to the specification of certain ’tilt in space’ and bariatric wheelchairs (among others), it is important that the additional weight of the wheelchair itself may need to be considered when calculating the maximum weight the power pack can assist.
