    All terrain attendant wheelchair?

    I need one for rough ground and cobbles (Rome was not much fun for my pusher!) I want to use it with a battery pack to help with hills and give my family more confidence in going out with me.
    The only reasonable one I've found so far is this, but it's a self propel. Do you think that could work with a power pak or as an attendant chair?

    Hi CS;

    It might be best to contact a company that supplies the power packs and ask them. I think that most power packs have smooth wheels and might not grip on grass etc.

    Love Terry

    Actually there's a quick link to a powerpack on the website to go with this wheelchairs that clearly does work with one

    Hi Cat, I've just purchased the Outlander All terrain wheelchair. I've also purchased a free wheel from Spokz. It's from America. It clamps onto the wheelchair and raises the small front wheels off the ground. This turns the wheelchair into a three wheeler. My husband pushes me we like to go to game fairs. We are off to The Malvern Spring Show this weekend so we are going to try out my new wheels. Will report on our trip! Ginger

    Thanks Ginger.

    Yes, do please let us know how it works over rough grass and curbs.

    I may be interested in getting one.

    Hi Ginger,

    Thanks for the tip about the freewheel. Thought I would google it because I havn't heard of them before. Is yours like this one?

    I hope you have a great time at the Show with your husband.

    Love Kayleigh xx

    Hi All;

    You can also get powered ones that fit onto a normal wheelchair.

    I have a couple of pictures of the Spokz:-

    Hi Kayleigh, yes that's the free wheel. Love Ginger

    Hi Doug, will let you know how I get on. I've put a bike bell on the wheelchair handle so my husband can ding it so people know we are coming �� Love Ginger

    Good idea Ginger!

    I have one on my Topro Troja rollator. It's very useful.

    I'm especially keen to know if the thicker tyres work over rough or soft ground.

    Enjoy the show!

    Doug
