Posture Support Wheelchairs

Shonaquip makes mobility devices, including wheelchairs, for children and adults in Southern Africa.

Shonaquip wheelchairs are specific: they are designed to provide extra body support for people with moderate to severe disabilities. Shonaquip's flagship wheelchair, the Madiba buggy, provides full body support for people with severe disabilities.

Wheelchairs and other posture support products are designed in Cape Town by Shonaquip’s engineering team, who work closely with our wonderful team of therapists. The Shonaquip therapy team are experts in seating individuals comfortably and correctly in wheelchairs and other body support devices.

Improving the quality of life of people with disabilities is important for Shonaquip.  We achieve this through:

  • access to good quality, modular wheelchairs that can be customised to meet the unique needs of our clients.
  • therapeutic services such as assessments, fittings and on-going reviews 
  • training for parents, care givers and other therapists on seating and positioning.

Shonaquip has branches in the Western Cape, Eastern Cape and Gauteng, and its head office and factory are based in Cape Town. 

People correctly seated in appropriate wheelchairs from Shonaquip are well supported, comfortable, and more independent.
