The Jazzy Select 6 has mid-wheel drive, allowing it to turn on the spot - combined with its narrow width, this makes it a much more manoeuvrable wheelchair than traditional rear-wheel drive models. In-line motor technology gives the Jazzy Select 6 decent efficiency, torque and range, making it well-suited to use outdoors, although it can occasionally struggle with steeper ramps. Active-Trac Suspension helps to smooth the ride over bumpy pavements.
The distinctive captain's style seat allows the wheelchair user to enjoy the comfort of their favourite armchair when out and about, and the backrest can be reclined through a simple lever. The seating is suitable for those without advanced requirements and features limited adjustability beyond the position of the footplate.
A simple to use controller makes the wheelchair easy to use, even for those unfamiliar with driving one before. Sleek red or blue bodywork gives the Jazzy Select 6 an attractive appearance, and part of its popularity is that it doesn't look like a traditional wheelchair.
Jazzy Select 6 Ultra
A Jazzy Select 6 Ultra variant is also available, which comes with a 4 inch powered seat lifter. If you are considering this option we would recommend also looking at the Jazzy Air 2, a newer chair with a significantly higher seat riser.
If you are after a reliable basic electric wheelchair for use indoors and out, the jazzy Select 6 is a good choice - it's why we picked it for our short-term hire fleet.
While it doesn't have the configurable seating or advanced performance of higher-end chairs it is well-suited for people comfortable in a standard seat who aren't looking to drive on more adventurous terrain.
