Darren Noonan has been waiting seven months for a new wheelchair, but has been unable to secure funding. Darren needs a new power chair as his current one is outdated. Darren’s mother, Kathleen explained their circumstances on RTE Radio One’s Liveline with Joe Duffy. Darren also joined her on air to outline his concerns about his exisiting chair  ” I slip down and I’m not very happy because I can’t sit up straight. Its been a really long wait”.

Darrens New Wheelchair

By the end of the Liveline programme, Joe Duffy confirmed that RTE had received calls from two anonymous donors who wished to pay for Darren’s new wheelchair and set the plan in motion, contacting MMS Medical to provide the new chair. Our Senior Product Specialist, Kieran Browne, confirmed that he would carry out the assessment this week and arrange delivery of a new chair to Darren as soon as possible. ” If we don’t have a brand new chair in stock immedicately, we will provide a demo chair as close as we can get it to you until the new comes in, ” added Kieran on air.

You can listen back to the podcast of the show.

Kieran Browne has carried out Darren’s full assessment and an order has been placed for a new chair.  Watch this space for the final delivery.
