Chunc One Spica Wheelchair

Chunc’s post operative Spica wheelchair has been designed primarily for children and young adults in hip spica casts, built to accommodate the width of the cast, however it can be used for other requirements such as radial leg extension braces. The wheelchair can be set up to accommodate the majority of fixed cast positions, including back recline, leg angle and knee bend. It can be fitted with angle adjustable foot rests aiding post cast physiotherapy. 

We offer two rental packages:

1. Spica in a box: Courier delivery, collection and decontamination charge.
2. Spica with a rep: Includes delivery, training, setup and collection.
