Oswald’s will celebrate its 145th year in business in a few months. 2020 is here, so I’d like to go over some of our most popular products and why our customers are so happy with them.
Nova Rolling Walkers
Nova rolling walkers (or rollators) have been our most popular mobility line for almost a decade. Each Nova walker comes with a great warranty that Nova has stood behind as long as we’ve been doing business with them.
The Nova rolling walkers we carry are durable and affordable, ranging from $90-$300, depending on user needs. Repairing walkers or replacing parts on Nova mobility products is quick and easy on the wallet. Also, Nova has a distribution center in McCook, IL, so special orders and parts never take long to arrive.
Nova Walker lines to look at:
- Nova Zoom series. 8” wheels, locking brakes, a comfortable seat; Our most popular model.
- Nova GetGo series. 6” wheels, locking brakes, a padded seat; The budget-friendly model.
- Nova Traveler 3-Wheeled Rolling Walker. 8” rubber wheels, no seat; for those on the go.
Nova also has a line of great, budget-friendly wheelchairs. Speaking of wheelchairs…
Strongback Wheelchairs are based on Strongback camping chairs—seats that are designed for great back support. These wheelchairs are high-quality units that are built to keep long-term users comfortable.
We went through several higher-end wheelchair manufacturers before settling on Strongback. Their products and customer service have been excellent which allows us to recommend them to customers without reservation.
If you are looking for a wheelchair that is as comfortable as it is functional, you need to try a Strongback.
Strongback products to look at:
- Strongback Wheelchairs. Enhanced back support, spoked wheels, lightweight frame.
- Strongback Excursion Transport Chair. Enhance back support, locking wheels, lightweight frame.
Pride VivaLift! Lift Chairs
Pride Mobility’s newest line, the VivaLift! series, is a winner. Pride took ideas and concepts from some of the most expensive chairs on the market and used them to create budget-friendly chairs. Solid construction and great fabric options have made the VivaLift! line very popular with users.
Chairs from the VivaLift! line are ‘infinite-position’ chairs, meaning the chair back and footrest can be operated independently of one another. This allows for some serious customization!
The VivaLift! line consists of 10 models, each with their own style and cushioning. We keep most VivaLift! chairs on the floor so you can try before you buy. Trying lift chairs before purchasing is important—they are expensive! Even the cheapest functional models on the market run over $500.
Pride Lift Chairs to look at:
- Pride VivaLift! Atlas. Spacious seat, cup holders, infinite position.
- Pride VivaLift! Tranquil. Luxurious cushioning, tall back, infinite position.
- Pride VivaLift! Elegance. Classic looks, contoured cushioning, footrest extension.
Golden Technologies Travel Mobility Scooters
Golden Mobility Scooters are the highest-quality travel mobility scooters on the market—and at a great price point. All Golden travel-size mobility scooters break down into 4 or 5 pieces (depending on model) and will fit into any trunk or trailer.
The size and portability of Golden Mobility scooters, however, doesn’t affect the features! Every Golden travel scooter comes with an adjustable seat, adjustable tiller, removable battery, and extra shroud colors—so you can personalize the look of your scooter.
Golden travel mobility scooters get great ‘gas mileage,’ as well—an average of 15 miles per charge*. These scooters were built to travel and they do it well.
Golden’s customer service and technicians are at the top of their game. We’ve had a great relationship with Golden and will stand behind any of their products.
Golden Mobility Scooters to look at:
- Golden Buzzaround series. Dozens of options, custom suspension, LED lights.
- Golden LiteRider series. 3- or 4-wheel options, under-seat basket, adjustable seat, and tiller.
*Varies per model and battery size. Even or downhill terrain is easier on mobility scooter battery life than uneven or inclined areas.
