Vida in Motion
Introducing the Vida Active by Roma Sport. From concept to completion, a truly made to measure rigid active wheelchair.
Purposeful engineering gives the Vida distinctive features. And, the customisation options extend well beyond colour selection.
Made to Measure – Not Adjusted to Fit
Made to Measure
Find out why our unique patented measuring system Contour Body Mapping® makes the Vida different.
The difference is very clearly in the fit. Made to measure is an exact science at Roma Sport. We know that there is room for error in traditional wheelchair measuring methods. As a result, our team of innovators and engineers began developing a new system for measurement. The Contour Body Mapping® device/system replaces the tape measure, eliminating human error of incorrect recording and interpretation. And, with moving components, you can experience how your chair will perform before the first piece of metal is cut. For first-hand accounts of our patented Contour Body Mapping process, watch the videos below in “Meet Vida Active Wheelchair Users.”

Made in Great Britain
The design, manufacturing, and testing of our products take place under one roof in Bridgend, South Wales using the highest quality materials. We believe that functionality and performance are essential elements in the design of our chairs which is why our wheelchairs are made to measure, not adjusted to fit.
- Made to Measure in Great Britain – Standard
- Lightweight 7020 aircraft grade aluminium – Standard
- 5-year frame warranty – Standard
Making up a large part of our team are innovators, engineers, and technicians. As a result, our products are born from countless hours of research and development -The Vida Active is no exception.
The backrest folds and locks into position, facilitating getting in and out of a vehicle. And, the torsion seating plate made of polycarbonate material, prevents sagging of the seat canvas and is supported by titanium brackets and screws.
- Patented folding backrest – Standard
- Patented torsion seating plate with titanium brackets and screws – Optional Extra
No two individuals are the same- same shape, same preferences, or follow the same course. We believe a made to measure wheelchair should be unique to the individual, 100% bespoke. With these principles in mind, we offer a range of standard and additional components that you may require.
- Spinergy Spox wheels – Standard
- Anodised aluminum handrims – Standard
- Scissor brakes – Standard
- Custom options available for frame colour and upholstery

How do I get my Vida?
Make an appointment to visit the Roma Sport facility for an assessment. During your fitting session have a tour of the factory and meet with the Team who will be making your made to measure chair.
How do I pay for my Vida?
Roma sells directly to the public which cuts out any third party involvement and makes the Vida more cost effective. We require a £500 deposit at the end of the first fit, which activates the building programme. The balance payment is expected on the completion of the second fit and final sign off of the Vida.
Roma offers finance options on active wheelchairs. Enabling you to spread the cost of your new chair over 24 months with low-cost monthly payments.Find out More & Apply
