Powered Neuro Wheelchair

The MND Association has worked with three wheelchair manufacturers, those most commonly used by statutory services, to create new specifications of Powered Neuro Wheelchair that meet the needs of people with motor neurone disease (MND).

MND is a progressive neurological condition that can cause, among other symptoms, muscle wasting and fatigue. This can lead to mobility problems, including difficultly walking. As the condition progresses, most people with MND will need to use a wheelchair.

The provision of the most appropriate wheelchair for people with MND has, in the past, been complicated. Most often, costly adaptations had to be made to existing wheelchair stock, leading to delays in people getting their wheelchair. The wheelchairs have been specified to avoid these problems, in an affordable way for wheelchair services.
