We strive to uphold and protect the rights of people with disabilities through policy and needs based practice.

Shonaquip provides wheelchair related services and support to clients, families, caregivers and professionals across South Africa. Services include seating assessment, device prescription, fitting of devices, carer training, client reviews and wheelchair maintenance.

Products

Shonaquip’s range of wheelchairs and mobility devices offer additional body support to improve posture in order to enhance independence and participation.

Training

Shonaquip offers flexible ‘hands on’, needs-based training for caregivers, community workers, therapists, technicians and seating practitioners.

Training develops seating awareness and builds skills of all who need to use, adjust or prescribe and fit our positioning or mobility devices, whether at home, in a centre or school.

Devices are designed based on needs identified in the field, and are especially well suited to the challenges of both urban and rural conditions.
