You might not know this about me, but when I was 13 I could only get out and about in a wheelchair for about 6 months. I had major surgery on my spine to correct a double scoliosis curve and while I was recovering I had to use a wheelchair. Although it was obviously a very difficult time for me it did give me a great insight into what it would be like to have your mobility restricted.
So, when I was contacted by Fenetic Wellbeing who asked if I could share some details of their electric folding wheelchairs I was delighted to. Because for those six months I had to use a clunky hospital issue wheelchair and I discovered how difficult it was to get in and out of the car, to go on public transport or to even get someone to push you down the road into town. There are so many great wheelchair options now that you don’t need to be restricted anymore.
A foldable electric wheelchair would make such a difference. They are much more convenient and they ensure that the user has more independence and is able to get out and about more. They are easier to put in your boot when travelling on a car journey or even on a flight and they are space saving so you have plenty of room for your luggage in the car boot.
It’s Spring at the moment and you are going to want to get out and about and one of these wheelchairs is perfect for that. They mean that less able members of the family are still able to go on days out with everyone else as this wheelchair can simply be folded and put in the boot, there’s no special spacious car required. You don’t need to worry about boot space so much when packing for a short family break away and because they are electric they give the user that bit of independence they don’t have with a manual wheelchair.
The other thing that these wheelchairs are great for is fitting into a space that isn’t wheelchair friendly. If you are using one of these chairs because your mobility is limited but you can still walk a short distance (like me after my operation) if you encounter somewhere that isn’t wheelchair friendly like a small cafe, you could walk in and find a seat and your friends and family can fold the pushchair to keep it to one side. A wheelchair like this makes so many more places accessible if you have a little mobility left.
Is there anyone in your family with mobility issues? Do you think that a folding electric wheelchair would be a game changer?
