Active Wheelchair

Sport is…about setting the bar higher when you smash your goals.

For us, designing a chair for an active lifestyle came in response to our made-to-measure rugby wheelchairs. Inspired by athletes, the Vida Active Wheelchair is an entirely bespoke wheelchair that the individual designs for their needs.  After all, no two bodies are the same! Purposeful engineering gives the Vida distinctive features. Also, the customisation options extend well beyond colour selection.

“Purposeful Engineering”

Made to Measure

The Contour Body Mapping® device/system replaces the tape measure, eliminating human error of incorrect recording and interpretation. And, with moving components, you can experience how your chair will perform before the first piece of metal is cut.

Contour Body Mapping

Our MK V Contour Body Mapping® system calculates your
measurements to within two decimal points.

CAD Design

CAD design is used as standard to build your chair and offers you a rendered image of your Vida.

Pressure Mapping

Pressure mapping is available to assess your seating requirements to help alleviate the need for expensive cushions.

Second Fitting Session

The second fitting is a Roma Sport standard for all made to measure products. A second fit allows you test your chair while it is tack welded to make any minor adjustments before completion.

Vida Active Wheelchair

Every Vida Active Wheelchair frame is custom built using highgrade aircraft Aluminium alloy 7020. This material is stronger and lighter than standard Aluminum, extremely efficient in performance, and is heat treatable.

Although the Vida is a bespoke build, Spinergy SPOX wheels are standard features. Spinergy’s patented PBO FIBER spokes with an X-laced hub complement the Vida’s performance adding torsional strength and advantages in push propulsion.

There are two ways of designing a Vida Active Wheelchair, either a Prescription built or our Premium Made-to-Measure service. Every Made-to-Measure build starts with our patented Contour Body Mapping device to accurately record measurements. This is a one-of-a-kind innovation; vital to maximising performance. Our Made-to-Measure wheelchairs have the added benefit of a second fitting. For in-depth details on our fitting process, please email sales@romasport.co.uk.

Premium Made to Measure

Using our patented Contour Body Mapping measuring system we are able to manufacture a totally bespoke, top of the range, Active Made to Measure wheelchair.

Vida Active chairs have the added advantage of the person having a second fit to ensure the wheelchair fully meets the persons specification and expectations. All Vida Active wheelchairs are supplied with Spinergy Wheels as standard.
