The Roma Shoprider Vienna powerchair is the predecessor to the popular Roma Reno, and remains an alternative to that model. Compact and extremely lightweight, it excels indoors where it is incredible manoeuvrable, and can also be dismantled for transport when necessary. Designed for use inside, the Vienna is extremely compact, giving it a turning circle equivalent to that of the Reno, allowing it to negotiate tight turnings and doorways. Simple to use, with intuitive rear-wheel drive, it is ideal for those who may not have used a powered wheelchair before.
The Vienna powerchair is not designed for outdoor use - however, some people do drive it occasionally in flat paved areas such as shopping centres, although its small 8 inch wheels and lack of suspension mean that it doesn't cope well with any kind of bumpy surface. The Vienna can be dismantled for transport in just a few minutes - this allows it to fit in the back of most cars, allowing it to be moved easily between locations.
The heaviest part weighs 18 kgs, which can be lifted in and out of a car boot by an able-bodied person. While the Vienna powerchair is a basic wheelchair, some limited adjustments can be made to the seating. This includes the height, which can be adjusted from 19 - 20 inches, the width of the armrests, and and the height of the headrest. The backrest angle can also be adjusted, allowing a small amount of recline. It is worth noting the 18 stone weight capacity of the Vienna, which is less than that of the Reno and most other powerchairs.
