Karma Mobility has achieved further international recognition at the recent 2015 IF Design Awards for its Evo Lectus Powerchair which is due to be launched in the UK later this year.

Over the last 60 years, the IF Design Awards have become recognised as a global label of design excellence and the 2015 Awards received over 5,000 entrants from 53 countries. The Evo Lectus was assessed for a wide range of criteria including aesthetics, practicability, execution, innovation, usability, ergonomics, brand fit, safety, environmental impact and target group fit.

“This latest award is further recognition of the ongoing investment into research and development that is put into every wheelchair and powerchair from Karma Mobility. We are delighted to receive this award and believe it will further strengthen the position of our network of UK retailers when they are talking to potential customers” commented Mark Duffield, General Manager, Karma Mobility.

The Evo Lectus has been engineered to meet the specific requirements of the user as every model can be customised for that individual. The center of gravity tilt ensures pressure relief and a high degree of comfort for the user at all times, while the power backrest recline and leg rest adjustment ensure the optimum seating position is achieved throughout the day. The ‘sky-high’ seat lift ranges from 480mm – 880mm and the two 300 W-electric motors combined with the compact chassis, hydraulic and independent suspension guarantee high manoeuvrability, safety and driving comfort.
