South Africa has diverse landscapes that pose different challenges for individuals. The Tuffee wheelchair was developed due to the need for a wheelchair that was affordable and had an increased durability for rough terrain. This locally manufactured wheelchair has 1.75cm broad rear wheels with 8″x 2″ front castors. These broader wheels allow the wheelchair to cruise through sand and rough terrain with ease, preventing the risk of getting caught/stuck or in some cases, tipped forwards out of your chair. The crossbar and upholstery are reinforced to increase the durability and lifespan of the wheelchair.

It is available in a range of sizes to fit both children and adults. The armrests and footrests are removable to aid transfers and transportation of the chair. The footrests are also height adjustable so they can be modified to fit each user’s specific needs.
