There is a good selection of walking aids available on the market and Hexagon is pleased to stock a good variety.  Depending on whether you need assistance indoors or outdoors, or both, there are lightweight folding frames, walking frames with seats and shopping bags and an assortment of walking sticks and crutches.

Hexagon Healthcare is pleased to stock a selection of manual wheelchairs to suit a wide variety of users.  Our range includes folding, lightweight aluminium, portable transit and self-propelled models as well as more robust heavy duty versions.  We work with our suppliers to ensure we have a comprehensive range that is good quality as well as reasonably priced options and bespoke wheelchairs as are required by the Wheelchair voucher scheme.  We feel that there are a few things to consider when buying a wheelchair and these are listed below for your information.  We would always recommend you try a few options before making your decision and we would welcome you at our showroom in Farnham, we are also pleased to offer local home demonstrations. Most of the range we stock come with attendant brakes in addition to standard locking brakes.

Points to consider are:

  • Who the wheelchair is for and their size, height and weight
  • How often is the chair to be used, eg: occasional or daily
  • Is the user able to propel themselves, or will they always be pushed
  • Does the chair need to be transported and therefore need to be lightweight
  • How much support does the user need, ie: cushion, head rest
