Tom’s story: Building custom power-chairs inspired by his#wife
When Tom decided to return to #work after looking after his #family for 10 years, Tom realised he wanted a more rewarding career.Inspired by his wife, Tom questioned if he could build power-chairs for a living, he says: “It seemed like a viable and logical move.A lack of recent development in the industry only spurred him on more. “I have a huge genuine interest for powered wheelchairs from both a personal and #business point of view and I cannot believe how little the industry has progressed over the last 10/20 years,” says Tom.
The first chair Tom built was for Hayley, over the years he has built her multiple add-ons including baby seats, phone holders and meal trays.
This was the first step to starting his own company, The Powerchair Company, and changing people’s lives for the better.
Since then Tom has built and sold more than ten power-chairs, allowing him to fine tune his design.
