Product code: A08

Availability: In stock


The Freedom Chair A08 is a lightweight folding electric wheelchair that is designed for larger users up to 25 stone or 160kg in weight. The A08 comes with a 19" seat width to ensure comfort. As the upgrade to the A06 model, the A08 is a larger version that uses stronger motors for a heavier user.

The two electric motors are increased to 250 watts each, and up to 3 batteries can be fitted to this model giving a potential range of up to 27 miles in total and a very respectable top speed of 4 mph or 6.5 kph.

To ensure a comfortable ride the A08 powerchair uses four coil springs as shock absorbers to remove vibration from rough surfaces. The powerchair will manage a climbing gradient of 10 degrees and has 2 quick-release anti-tip wheels which provide reassuring stability. The large 10" rear drive wheels come with PU tyres and drive the electric wheelchair with ease.

A highly manoeuvrable folding powerchair

When folded this electric wheelchair packs down to a compact unit that is very well suited to wheelchair users who travel frequently. The folded powerchair can be lifted with ease and placed in the boot of a car or the hold of a bus or train. The complete folding process takes just a second or two and the anti tip wheels release with ease, making the whole folded chair compact and relatively lightweight at 27KG

If you want attendant control there is an optional kit that can be easily fitted to either handle allowing the carer full control of the powerchair with a speed control that can be varied to suit the conditions. When it's no longer needed it can be deactivated allowing the powerchair user to regain full control.
