TREKINETIC GTE (Powered Wheelchair)
Light weight : Versatile : Safe : Comfortable
Inclusivity : Freedom : Independence : Confidence
Weighing in at just 36kg, (most powered wheelchairs weigh 100kg plus) this unique lightweight powered wheelchair is designed to manage all terrains, giving you the freedom to be independent or join your friends and family on their outings to the beach, woods, muddy fields, or for a winters snow ball fight. Thanks to our Formula 1 heritage, the Trekinetic is probably the only powered chair that can be lifted and put into almost ANY car, without the need for a hoist, which means you have the freedom to choose the car you want and it doesn’t have to be adapted.
CONFIDENCE, SAFETY, INCLUSIVITY & INDEPENDENCE
You can trust the large wheels at the front to simply roll over obstacles, giving you the freedom to venture further and explore new, varied and perhaps, challenging terrains, safe in the knowledge that there are no castors to get stuck. For added security over difficult surfaces, or downhill, simply adjust the variable wheel camber. No tools required.
Designed to suit the human shape, the lightweight, carbon fibre seat, moulds around you supportively, while the successfully patented shock absorbers, ensure a smooth ride. For added comfort, the angle of the seat can be adjusted at will, so you can choose to sit upright or recline.
FREEDOM & VERSATILITY
Unusually for a powered chair, the Trekinetic GTE can also be used in a manual mode, which means you’re not stuck if your battery runs out. Choose to use it in manual to keep fit and / or conserve battery life, and when you’re feeling a little weary, switch it over to power. The standard battery will give you approx 3.5 hours of continuous use, depending on weight and terrain.
Perfect for indoor use as well, the chair is so versatile, you can turn on a sixpence, reverse it with ease, and if you happen to drop something on the floor, simply tip the chair forward onto its footplate and retrieve the item.
LIGHTWEIGHT & VERSATILE
Every removable component on the Trekinetic is designed to detach quickly and easily, and without the need for any tools. The motors are housed in the wheels, and the quick release makes them simple to remove. The centre tub folds, the footplate retracts, the battery easily removed, which means at 15kg, the chair can be lifted and put into practically any car, boat, taxi, or plane. And if you’re planning on flying, simply remove the joystick and put it safely in your hand luggage. After all, the heart of your chair deserves looking after.
Finally, and in keeping with the designers vision to create an ‘elegant solution’, there is the umbrella, which comes as standard.
The Trekinetic GTE truly does break down barriers between able and disabled. Rarely will you be ignored in your State Of The Art, funky eye catching chair.
