    Light folding electric wheelchair

    Hi Everyone,

    I have been looking through old threads for recommendations for a very light weight, folding electric wheelchair. At the moment I use a scooter or a manual wheelchair when I am
    out but I would like more independence. It would be easier to use in the home too.

    I rang wheelchair services and my OT today and they only provide the larger ones like salsa mini . They implied, very sensitively that I need to think of my changing needs. I totally understand this and I am not being ungrateful...well not much but we want to be out and about and travel as much as possible whilst I still can. I think Ellie said Carpe Diem !!

    It might not be a long term solution but I would be grateful for any recommendations or advice. We have been looking at a freedom 6 or a pride I go. I don't need head support atm but I would like a chair that could be pushed if the battery failed.

    Thank you ,
    Love Debbie x

    I would be interested to hear about any possible lightweight folding electric wheelchairs too. I am very pleased with my salsa2 it is comfortable for use at home but it cannot go in a normal car. I have noticed that some electric wheelchairs are now coming online secondhand and the prices of some new ones are coming down. Any advise will be appreciated. Ann

    Hi Deb & Ann;

    They do free home trials and I think most chairs have the ability to be pushed, including the Freedom 6. I have seen a few out and about but don't know reliability etc,.

    Love Terry
    TB once said that "The forum is still the best source for friendship and information."

    It will only remain so if new people post and keep us updated on things that work or don't work and tips.

    Please post on old threads that are of use so that others see them and feel free to start new subjects and threads.
