Roma Shoprider Vienna Powerchair
The Roma Shoprider Vienna is the predecessor to the popular Roma Reno, and remains an alternative to that model. Compact and extremely lightweight, it excels indoors where it is incredible manoeuvrable, and can also be dismantled for transport when necessary.
Designed for use inside, the Vienna is extremely compact, giving it a turning circle equivalent to that of the Reno, allowing it to negotiate tight turnings and doorways. Simple to use, with intuitive rear-wheel drive, it is ideal for those who may not have used a powered wheelchair before.
The Vienna is not designed for outdoor use - however, some people do drive it occasionally in flat paved areas such as shopping centres, although its small 8 inch wheels and lack of suspension mean that it doesn't cope well with any kind of bumpy surface. The Vienna can be dismantled for transport in just a few minutes - this allows it to fit in the back of most cars, allowing it to be moved easily between locations. The heaviest part weighs 18 kgs, which can be lifted in and out of a car boot by an able-bodied person.
Roma Shoprider Vienna Powerchair is available to purchase VAT free, or why not use your disability allowance to lease it on the Motability Scooter and Powered Wheelchair scheme?
