Ocean Going Mobility Chair
STOCKTON Surf Life Saving Club has become the first in Australia to provide a unique amphibious wheelchair, which will allow people with disabilities and reduced mobility to venture into the ocean.
Built by KSM Beach Mobility Chairs, it is essentially an all-terrain amphibious wheelchair designed for people with different abilities who may need assistance in accessing the water safely and reliably. A floating wheelchair for the beach, river, lake or swimming pool for anyone with reduced mobility.
Fun in the water should be free to everyone! As a family friendly club, we hold strong values with our community and are motivated to empower, encourage and involve each individual in realising their dreams.
Stockton Surf Life Saving Club would like to recognise House With No Steps for their generous support & donation of funds that allowed us to purchase this fantastic KSM Beach Mobility Chair.
Beach Access Wheel Chair
The “Sandcruiser” beach access wheel chair is designed for use on the soft sand of our beach at Stockton.
This wheel chair is only capable of being used at the waters edge and is stable in water levels up to the centre of the tyres.
