Progression of Our Product Range

Vida active wheelchair user, Aaron Phipps, recounts our progression into creating wheelchairs for daily use. It was the insistence of our customers that we began developing the Vida. Using the same materials and patented measuring technology, the design and concept came together with the help of our customers. The Vida is a high-performance wheelchair created by athletes for an active, independent lifestyle.
