Delichon is one of the UK’s top providers of Custom Seating for wheelchair users. In addition to our unique Foam-Karve process for the production of special seating, we manufacture our own 3-Wheel Delta All-Terrain Buggy suitable for children and adults and are the UK distributor for the amphibious Hippocampe All-Terrain Beach Wheelchair.
Originally set up as a special seating company in 1996 we became aware that although our seating on a wheelchair provided a functional and comfortable base for everyday school and home use, our customers were, in the main, unable to get out and about easily in the countryside and to more remote locations. We were one of the first companies to use three wheeled All-Terrain buggies to get disabled children and adults out and about. We started by offering a standard baby buggy back in 1996 and this was followed by a range of other buggies, which we adapted as necessary. In 2007 we launched our own ATB – the Delta. Using all the information we had gained over the years and our extensive seating knowledge we have developed an excellent seating position within the canvas which is suitable for a range of clients, including those with more complex postural requirements. Designed and developed by us, and manufactured in the UK, the Delta has quickly become the answer to how do we get out and about.
