As NDIS registered providers for hire equipment Sydney we understand that purchasing the best mobility equipment for you is a challenging feat! There numerous factors to consider before deciding to commit to a wheelchair including:

  1. Comfortability - Comfort is a highly subjective opinion, even if you know the exact details of the material, all materials can differ slightly which may impact the overall comfort of the wheelchair. Gilani Engineering has a range of cushion options to offer along with our electric wheelchairs and a range of different covers. Even changing the cover or contour of two cushions with the same filling may change the comfort. That is why we always recommend you to trial a wheelchair before buying.
  2. Fit and Size to the personFit and size is an important factor for choosing the perfect wheelchair for you. This is to ensure you are sitting in the correct posture when in the wheelchair and that you are appropriately supported. If the wheelchair is too large, you will move around, however if the wheelchair seat is too tight, you will feel uncomfortable and may even have a risk of developing pressure injuries if you are unable to move around.
  3. Weight capacity and weight of the wheelchair - Heavier individuals require wheelchairs not only with a higher weight capacity but also with more room such as the bariatric air hawk or falcon lightweight folding electric wheelchair. You can hire a wheelchair such as the lightweight folding electric wheelchair in the bariatric version known as the Air hawk or Falcon by contacting our staff on 02 8740 8963.
  4. Suitability to home environment - Depending on the size of the available access in your home, different sized wheelchairs are suitable.
  5. Ease of use and whether it fits in the car - Depending on how large your car boot is, you may need to consider whether the wheelchair you are buying fits into the boot and whether it can fold.

Number 1 reason for why you should always hire a wheelchair before buying

Many clients purchase the Falcon as it is the only wheelchair available in Australia to be electric and have a step-less reclining function.

What makes the Air Hawk an air travel approved electric wheelchair?

The Air Hawk is air travel friendly which means it can be folded and carried into an aeroplane as luggage. Air travel friendly wheelchairs have an MSDS certificate so be sure to check!

What is an MSDS certificate?

Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) is a document that contains information on the potential hazards (health, fire, reactivity and environmental) and how to work safely with the chemical product. As electric wheelchairs have batteries, the chemicals inside may be hazardous and that is why having an MSDS is essential for the flight. 
When bringing your folding electric wheelchair onto the flight, make sure to remove the batteries and keep them in your hand-held luggage and you can bring the wheelchair with the rest of your luggage.
For more information on how to travel with motorized wheelchairs or mobility scooters, see the Australian Government Civil Aviation Authority.

TGA and wheel chairs

The Australian Government's Department of Health has a branch called Therapeutic Goods Administration also known as the TGA.

In a nutshell, the TGA is Australia's regulatory authority for therapeutic goods. They assess and monitor products and activities to ensure therapeutic goods available in Australia are of an acceptable standard with the aim of ensuring that the Australian community has access, within a reasonable time, to therapeutic advances.

Any medical goods such as medications, surgical equipment, chemicals, procedures and assessments must be TGA approved to show that they are safe to use and of an acceptable standard. The current Covid-19 vaccines for example, had to go through a TGA process as well.

Gilani Engineering's Air Hawk electric wheelchair has gone through the process of becoming TGA certified.

What are the Best Recliner chairs for Aged Cares in Sydney?

Have you ever wondered why Recliner electric chairs are an excellent product to use for Aged Cares in Sydney?

Well, I'm sure most people know that electric chairs are extremely comfortable and can support you safely and comfortably regardless of how long you are sat down for. Rise and recliner chairs are highly adjustable, allowing you to find the perfect position of comfort.

But apart from comfort what makes recliner electric chairs perfect for use especially in Aged care settings?

Electric Power Lift Recliner Sofa Chair Leather with Massage

Electric Power Lift Recliner Sofa Chair Leather with Massage

Well, you have come to the right place as our expert mobility equipment advisors at Gilani Engineering can help you find the best recliner chair for you. We understand how difficult it can be to find the right recliner chair. Recliner electric chairs provide numerous benefits not only to the residents but also the staff.
Recliner chairs for elderly are highly versatile and can be used for multiple different reasons including Sleeping, Seating, Leisure, Posture, Exercise and for assistance with transfers.

1. Sleeping - In aged care homes, many residents prefer a recliner chair to sleep in , this is because recliner chairs have wheels on the bottom and are easily portable, much like a wheelchair.  Staff can easily transfer residents in different places around the room to suit the resident. The benefits of sleeping in a recliner chair mean that the resident can use the automatic remote control to recline themselves down when they decide to sleep and sit themselves up when they decide to sit awake instead of waiting for care staff or nursing staff to assist them to transfer from a bed to a chair.

2. Transfers - Some residents with very limited mobility find it painful, inconvenient and difficult to transfer from their bed to the chair. However a recliner electric chair may eliminate this problem. Some residents prefer to sleep in a recliner chair instead of having the hassle of transferring from their bed. Secondly, recliner chairs are adjustable in height, making it a lot easier to transfer residents into and out of the chair. The nursing staff can tilt the chair forward and higher up to make standing up half the effort. Whereas, sitting up from a bed is very difficult due to the low height. A recliner electric chair has armrests where the residents can use to push up from.

3. Comfort and tilt function - Residents that are susceptible to pressure sores may find that cushions can be easily fitted to recliner chairs to prevent the formation of pressure sores. Recliner chairs are highly padded and comfortable, they secure sitting postures and have lumbar support infills which help maintain the natural curvature of the residents backs.

4. Physiotherapy Exercise - Some residents have weak legs and are unable to sit and stand from a flat level. Instead of sitting and standing from a low level which is really difficult, the physiotherapist or nursing staff can practise sitting and standing from a higher level and progressively lower the chair to increase difficulty of the sit to stand.

5. Posture correction - This padded product is highly useful for posture correction and provides a stable and comfortable seat.

What makes Gilani Engineering Recliner Chairs so special?

  1. Hire to Buy program - Gilani Engineering's innovative Hire to buy program allows you to pay to try out our recliner chairs first, and then if you decide you'd like to keep it, you just need to pay what you are owing on the balance of the product! This saves you cost, time and allows you to see how the recliner chair is in your house before you commit.
  2. Genuine Leather - The material used for our recliner chairs are either Genuine Leather or high quality fabric material. Our products enduring quality mean that you save costs over time as you do not have to keep purchasing replacements.
  3. Range of colours - We love to give our customers different options, so that is why our recliner chairs come in beige, matte brown or black leather. We believe that these colours are neutral, classic and luxurious making them a perfect addition for any home, aged care or hospital setting.
  4. NDIS providers - Gilani Engineering are registered NDIS providers and can utilise your NDIS or Aged Care funding for you to purchase our recliner chairs. Just email sales@gilaniengineering.com.au with your NDIS number, full name, date of birth to use your NDIS funding.
