How long does the battery last?
I haven’t pushed my chair anywhere near it’s limit, as I plug it in each time I’ve been outside the house. But the advertised range is up to 31km.
This chair was supplied for me from NHS Wheelchair Services. It has lots of options regarding seating and postural support, all of which is comparable with lots of other seating systems. I have a Jay Ion memory foam moulded cushion on the seat and the standard moulded back support, which provides some lateral support. I have a head rest which is fully adjustable, including the two side parts so they can be adjusted to cradle my head as much as required. I was slightly limited in terms of leg-rest choice, this is because my height as the centre footplate option wasn’t available. It is long enough in length, however I have separate footrests with calf supports that raise on a ratchet system (meaning I can move them upwards just by raising my legs) and they have a quick release lever to drop them down again at the top of each leg rest. I also have the tilt-In-space function, meaning my chair maintains the same postural arrangement whilst tilting backwards. This means that I am fully supported and I able to drive it in a reclined position. I find the combination of the tilt in space and the adjustable leg-rests make this a very versatile chair, which is comfortable outside the house and when resting. With regards to travelling, it is a tall and a long chair which limits your choices regarding WAVs. But there is a Caddy Maxi Life conversion available, which is the smallest vehicle compatible with the chair available on motability. I haven’t yet been on a bus or a train with this chair, but because it’s quite long I imagine it may be tricky if the bus or train were busy. Equally the chair is extremely manoeuvrable due to its mid-wheel drive, meaning it can turn in its own length. The SureStep technology built into this chair, combined with its suspension means it handles kerb of up to 2 or 3 inches with relative ease and the wheels adjust to keep you as level as possible when driving over uneven surfaces.
