A wheelchair that grows
Chunc chairs are designed to grow with you. They offer a high level of adaptability and can easily accommodate changes, for example due to growth or medical condition. At the same time, there is no compromise on the postural support and comfort offered.
I have been a fan of Chunc products for 16 years. I find it to be one of the most versatile seating systems/wheelchairs on the market. It can accommodate a huge range of users. And with the ability to offset supports, recline, accommodate asymmetry and still achieve good posture and comfort, it is a fairly unique set up. I recently did an assessment with a child who had been in a moulded seat for some years, and her posture was better in the Chunc wheelchair than in the mould! The Chunc rep I use is second to none and makes working with the company seamless.
The new Chunc One wheelchair base with its sleek design and colours of black and red is very attractive. Its shock absorbing properties are par excellence, especially for users who like motion. Together with its wide wheels with deep tread, this makes for ease of pushing for the attendant – especially on uneven surfaces and rough terrain.
What we have really appreciated over our years with Chunc, is that they accommodate our needs. Our daughter’s condition is ongoing so we are often in touch with our Seating Specialist, Morgan, and he is always obliging and attends meetings with ourselves and our OT. It means a great deal to us that we can have an on-going relationship with the Chunc team.
I was so fed up with pushing a heavy wheelchair around. My physio suggested Chunc and I’ve never looked back. My daughter has cerebral palsy and no balance, finding the right chair for her was very difficult. The Chunc wheelchair is very light to push and it has the right support for her – a recent X-ray confirmed that her spine is completely straight. The attendants at day care all say that of all the wheelchairs they see, the Chunc is their favourite.”
We have been Chunc customers for the past seven years. Both daughters have them and recently have moved to moulded seats. We have found them both attractive and robust. Although a little expensive initially their longevity makes them a cost effective option. Our seating specialist, Ian Park, has always been friendly and knowledgeable providing excellent service, even travelling to our holiday destination to repair a gas strut after an emergency breakdown. I highly recommend Chunc.
Chunc chairs are robust and so easy to adapt. This means we as an outdoor centre can enable hundreds of guests to access the outdoors. It grows with the person which means that almost all guests no matter what their size or shape can be made comfortable. Thank you to Chunc for kindly supporting The Bendrigg Trust and all of our guests in delivering epic memory-making experiences in the great outdoors.
