Trekinetic GTE – Powered Wheelchair

USERS RATING:
(Based on the users needs, lifestyle and preferences.)

Wheelchair Description:
It’s an off-road electric wheelchair with mountain bike quick-release wheels. It has a light carbon fibre seat with standard foam cushioning, and a retractable footplate for easy transfers. I also chose to add folding handlebars and a “safari kit” which includes a puncture repair kit and a spare rear tyre that attaches to the back (behind the battery box). The wheels can be put at different angles for different terrain, and the seat can also be adjusted to be at different angles to provide better stability off-road stability.

Battery Life:
5 Hours Per Battery (I have 2 so that I can charge one whilst using the other!)

Source of Wheelchair:

Diagnosis:
Hypermobile Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (hEDS), Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), Automatic Dysfunction & Chronic Widespread Multifocal Pain

Personal Opinion:
I have found the chair to be suitable for all outdoor use and some indoor use. I say only some indoor use because there is a door in my house that it cannot fit through without taking a wheel off. Although most all-terrain chairs can’t be made smaller! It is quite easy for my parents and carers to take apart and put together, although it took some time for them to learn as there are a few steps to it. But over time they got quicker and can easily lift it in the boot of our car with plenty of room for other stuff.

It is incredibly comfortable for me to sit in for many hours – I think being able to adjust the chair’s position using the tilt in space mechanism is what makes it so comfortable to use for so long. It is for these reasons that I have become much more independent and have been able to access parts of the lakes and countryside that I haven’t seen in years! It was definitely worth the investment, and I would 100% recommend it to other wheelchair users!
