Motion Healthcare's Foldalite range are well-known as high-quality innovative folding powerchairs. The Foldalite Pro can be easily folded up for transport, and stood up and wheeled for convenient storage. It weighs just 26.5 kg, and comes with light Lithium batteries, which can be removed - allowing for on or off-board charging.
Unlike most folding powered wheelchairs, the Foldalite Pro has an advanced digital LCD joystick, with three drive profiles for use around different environments. The joystick can be mounted on either armrest, or alternatively on the backrest for an attendant to use.
The Foldalite Pro is compact and manoeuvrable - ideal for driving around the house and shops. The addition of suspension makes it more comfortable for use outdoors than the basic Foldalite, although it remains best suited to paved surfaces.
The tension adjustable backrest can be set to provide the right levels of support and comfort for you, and the knee protectors can also be repositioned to fit you. An underseat storage bag is ideal for carrying around personal possessions.
The Foldalite Pro features a larger 16.5 inch seat, with a 22 inch gap between the armrests, as well as an impressive 23.5 stone weight capacity. This allows it to take larger and heavier people in comfort compared to the basic Foldalite.
Motion Healthcare's Foldalite Pro is one of our favourite folding powerchairs, offering a good blend of features without being overly heavy. It is also a good choice for heavier users who want to fit comfortably within a folding powerchair.
