BREAKING DOWN BARRIERS,
OPENING DOORS TO INCLUSION
Shonaquip and the Uhambo Foundation, together forming a social enterprise, are committed to transforming the quality of life of individuals living with moderate to severe disabilities. We design, manufacture and supply posture support wheelchairs, mobility equipment and positioning devices. We provide a range of services including assessment, customized fittings, reviews and training to support use of these products. We strive to uphold and protect the rights of people with disabilities through policy and needs based practice.
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.
The Shonaquip and Uhambo teams who together form the Social Enterprise, link with each other and many other stakeholders to reduce medical and community barriers and provide holistic services for people with mobility impairment and other disabilities.
