An active-style wheelchair for urban and semi-rural living

Motivation’s Active Folding wheelchair is perfect for anyone in urban and semi-rural environments needing improved mobility.

Highly adjustable and versatile, it suits users with a range of mobility impairments who want to live an active lifestyle.

The large rear wheels facilitate efficient self-propelling or easy pushing and can be used in safe or active positions. Medium-sized castor wheels allow the user to manoeuvre over uneven terrain while the extra thick inner tubes reduce risk of punctures. 

This wheelchair’s simple folding mechanism allows for storage in small places and easy transportation.

Comfort and postural support is offered by tension adjustable fabric seat upholstery. A pressure-relief cushion is included to assist in prevention on pressure sores, and can also be adjusted to fit the user.
