Fly or cruise with a pow­er­chair

Daily Mail - - Freeview Primetime Planner -

WITH sum­mer com­ing up, a light­weight fold­ing pow­er­chair could help you make more of the warm weather and en­joy reg­u­lar hol­i­days. It can be used in­side and out, is quick to fold and can be eas­ily fit­ted in­side a car boot.

It’s quite fea­si­ble to fly abroad with one as they are fold­able, com­pact and sturdy and come with a lithium-ion bat­tery that’s suit­able for air travel.

Tony Plant re­cently took his pow­er­chair on hol­i­day to Walt Dis­ney World Florida, dur­ing an America trip.

He says: ‘We had ten flights in to­tal and they all went smoothly, and the bat­ter­ies lasted fine even on a long day at the theme parks.’

Cruis­ing is pos­si­ble with a fold­ing pow­er­chair, mean­ing you can get from the cap­tain’s ta­ble to the theatre with­out strain.

It’s also a great way to get around the gar­den or en­joy fam­ily walks, even on rough ter­rain. And it will carry some­one up to 25 stone, with a 27-mile range.

With blue skies due to beckon us out­side soon, it’s worth ask­ing a spe­cial­ist com­pany to show you some mod­els to try at home. The best com­pa­nies even of­fer an as­sess­ment by an oc­cu­pa­tional ther­a­pist, to en­sure you find a model that’s ex­actly right for you.
