This wheelchair has proved the most comfortable of all the electric wheelchairs I use and I can spend the longest time in it.
The ride is good and allows me to go off-road – even onto beaches although it does struggle in very soft deep sand – it can dig itself in – and I need some extra pushing from my wife! It has given me the freedom to enjoy the great outdoors, Theatre, music concerts, holidays abroad and given me independence.
I have Progressive MS and I went from a Caterham 7 sports car to the Trekinetic – and it has gone some way to making me feel good about myself. It is often a talking point whilst out and about as it has a very modern design with the 3rd small rear wheel and people stop me to talk about the chair.
My wife finds that it is a simple exercise to strip the chair down to the bucket section and remove the mountain bike like wheels which pop off easily and it all fits in the back of our car. The newer versions of my chair will fit in a car boot without having to strip it down.
The only downside is that I have the wide-bodied version being 6ft tall and 16 stone and we do sometimes find it will not always fit through hotel room doorways and houses that are not disabled friendly as it is too wide across the wheelbase. The standard version does not have this problem.
