We have three Landeez All-terrain Wheelchairs - purpose built lightweight manual wheelchairs suitable for adults and children. These wheelchairs are designed to be pushed by an attendant/ carer and can be used in the countryside, on a sandy beach and in shallow water (up to 6ins/ 15cms deep).
The chairs have large pneumatic tyres, padded upholstery, leg support length adjustment, foot rest angle adjustment, foot pillow, wheel lock (NB - the wheel lock is NOT a brake), adjustable armrests and seat belt. The chairs are easy to dismantle and reassemble - no tools are required.
A detachable harness, detachable head and neck support are also available.
There is a maximum user weight limit of 23 stone/ 146 kilos.
During the summer season, two of the all-terrain wheelchairs are kept at Whitby foreshore, available for hire to use on Whitby beach. A wheeled transport bag is available for taking a chair to the countryside or to another beach. Details are available from the DAG office.
