Motion Healthcare Foldalite Trekker

The Foldalite Trekker is a performance folding powerchair, featuring suspension, bigger wheels, a longer range and more powerful motors. This gives it much improved handling outdoors compared to conventional folding powerchairs at the expense of being a little heavier.

Product Description

The Trekker is the top performing model of the Foldalite range. The main difference is its improved outdoor capabilities - the result of larger 12 inch rear wheels, suspension, and more powerful 250 Watt motors. The higher capacity Lithium Ion batteries offer a longer 13 mile range, making this the ideal folding powerchair for lengthy journeys outdoors.

The Foldalite Trekker remains transportable - it folds up just as easily as the other Foldalite models, although it is a bit heavier at 33 kg. This realistically requires two people to lift - or alternatively it works brilliantly with a car boot hoist.

A digital LCD screen joystick comes with the Foldalite Trekker, which includes a built-in USB port to charge your phone on the go, and three drive profiles for use around different environments.

The comfortable 18 inch seat and 23.5 stone weight capacity allow the Trekker to accommodate heavier users with ease. The backrest is adjustable to provide you with your ideal level of comfort and support.

Our Verdict

If you're after a folding powered wheelchair for use primarily outdoors and want to take it beyond just pavements, the Trekker is one of the best choices. Only Quickie's new Q50 R stacks up against it when it comes to outdoor performance, but is heavier and more expensive.
