河村轮椅 (Kawamura Wheelchair) is a Japanese brand, but its products are manufactured in China. The production process is completely in accordance with Japanese technology and management standards, so the quality of the wheelchairs meets the requirements of Japanese product quality. Currently, most of the Kawamura Wheelchairs sold in the Japanese market are also manufactured in China.
The differences between Kawamura Wheelchairs and Chinese domestic wheelchair brands are mainly in the following aspects:
1. Different materials.
Kawamura Wheelchairs use 7003 series aerospace titanium aluminum alloy, which is also used in aircraft, Shinkansen, and other applications, ensuring the strength of the wheelchair while being lightweight. The main function of a wheelchair is to assist with mobility. Although it does not require frequent lifting, a lightweight wheelchair is more convenient to move (especially in some older residential areas without elevators).
Kawamura Wheelchairs are designed to fully consider the needs of users. At the same time, the thickness and diameter of the tubes are increased, which improves the overall service life and safety of the wheelchair. Other main components are also carefully selected from brands, choosing environmentally friendly materials that meet Japanese quality requirements, and each batch of components undergoes strict inspections to eliminate harmful substances.
2. Differences in production technology and production management
Kawamura Wheelchair design focuses on people-oriented design from the user's perspective, which is more humanized compared to domestic wheelchair designs. The production management is more strict, especially regarding the supervision of product quality. Therefore, although they are both produced in China, there is a big difference in quality.
In the market, imported wheelchair brands are generally considered to be more expensive. In summary, compared to ordinary domestic wheelchair brands, Kawamura Wheelchairs are safer, more reliable, and more environmentally friendly. This is also the reason why Kawamura Wheelchairs are more expensive than domestic wheelchair brands. From the procurement of raw materials to the assembly of the finished product, we have a strict inspection mechanism and advanced inspection equipment to ensure the quality of our products. We also have a strict after-sales warranty system to ensure that consumers have no worries.
