The SANGO Slimline has the same components as the SANGO Advanced but with an ultra-compact chassis width of 51cm for the tightest of manoeuvres indoors combined with great traction and comfort for outdoor use.
Darren Legg, Managing Director of DIETZ Mobility UK, exclusively commented to THIIS: “We believe that Motability’s mission to support people with disabilities in achieving greater independence through access to affordable, worry free mobility really aligns with our own values.
“We are also very proud that we have been able to pass Motability’s stringent checks to become an accredited supplier to the scheme.”
“Our SANGO electric wheelchairs have proven themselves to be very robust, durable and easily readjusted to suit changes in different needs. This will align itself perfectly with the worry free mobility that both ourselves and Motability aim to offer.”
For existing dealers who are accredited on the scheme, the firm has stated that Mike Booker, Area Sales Manager for DIETZ Mobility UK, will be in touch shortly to go through the configurations, weekly allowance amounts and other relevant details.
