About The Bimblers 131 Articles We are Rob and Bridget. We are disabled bloggers based in the UK. We share wheelchair friendly holidays, wheelchair accessible days out and accessible holiday accommodation. We also talk about mobility aids and living with multiple chronic illnesses and disabilities.
The WHILL Model C powerchair from TGA Mobility can potentially change Bridget’s life.
We’ve found a powerchair she can use for the first time because it has a palm-size joystick.
This single feature delivers the maximum amount of benefit for Bridget.
Let’s be frank; almost any other wheelchair control has the potential to cause catastrophic damage to Bridget’s hand.
After only one trip on the WHILL, Bridget named it “Baby Bimbler” and says she is confident, feels safe using it and can’t wait to go bimbling further afield.
All positive signs, but there are some downsides to having a WHILL Model C powerchair. I’ll tell you what they are later.
We are using the WHILL Model C for a few months to see how Bridget get’s on with it. We will not be compensated for trialling or writing about the WHILL. Any opinions given in our posts or videos are based on Bridget using the chair.
What is the WHILL C Powerchair?
The WHILL Model C is a state of the art powerchair designed from the ground up with the user in mind. Standard electric wheelchairs are dated, and the market was ready for a fresh take on personal mobility. The WHILL’s next-level design, comfort and stability fill that brief perfectly.
Who is the WHILL Powerchair for?
The WHILL is for anyone with mobility problems who don’t need a specialist wheelchair.
If you can use a standard electric wheelchair or powerchair, then I’m pretty sure you can use a WHILL with the caveat, test drive it first.
The WHILL, with its clever design, can be used indoors or out, around town or on a reasonably flat country walk.
And the best part, because it’s designed with personal comfort in mind, flexibility is built-in.
