The best innovations are often caused by dissatisfaction with existing solutions or no solutions at all. So it was with Alu Rehab and Netti wheelchairs.
In the late 1980s a group of friends on the Norwegian west coast came to the conviction: “This can be improved!” One of the friends had a family member who was wheelchair bound. He was touched by the challenges that the family and wheelchair users faced daily. They began to develop a completely new chair with sophisticated adjustments focusing on a comfortable sitting position. With mutual help and the inspiration and ideas from the family they developed a chair with innovative solutions. Through support and relief of the body the chair gave the brother a sense of well-being. It was important to have the possibility to change position, due to many hours of sitting every day, in order to prevent damage such as distortion and pressure ulcers.
The wheelchair increased the joy of life of the mutual friend so much that they decided to establish Alu Rehab to also offer other wheelchair users the same relief and joy of life. In 1989, Alu Rehab rolled off the assembly line, so to speak. Our motto till today: To adapt the chair to the user – and not vice versa.
Alu Rehab looks back on 20 years of experience with comfort wheelchairs and offers the market the largest selection of comfort wheelchairs and accessories. The motto is still the same. In collaboration with users, therapists, doctors, engineers and designers, we want to create a comfort wheelchair with unique solutions. The many adjustment options on the chair and numerous accessories provide the perfect sitting position for every user.
