Active Wheelchair Hire

Our active wheelchair hire offers a convenient solution for those looking to try one out before buying, needing cover while their wheelchair is in for repair, or just wanting to hire rather than purchase. Our flexible hire service lets you hire for as long or short as you want.

Product Description

An active wheelchair is much lighter than a conventional wheelchair, designed for efficient self-propelling by the occupant.

Rogue ALX

Our active wheelchair of choice is Ki Mobility's versatile Rogue ALX. It is a lightweight, rigid-framed monotube wheelchair made from durable aircraft-grade 7000 series aluminium. While those new to active wheelchairs might initially think a folding chair is more transportable than a rigid framed one, the opposite is in fact true. Just fold the backrest down and pop the quick release wheels off, and your wheelchair is a compact size that can be lifted easily into your car, while also being much lighter than an equivalent folding-framed wheelchair.

You will find a rigid framed chair is therefore much easier to self-propel than a folding-framed one, which is why around 75% of active wheelchairs we sell are rigid framed ones.


While a hired active wheelchair can never quite replicate the "perfect fit" of a bespoke one built to your measurements, the highly adjustable nature of the Tsunami allows it to be matched as closely as possible to your size, needs and experience.

As part of the handover process when hiring one, our experienced specialists will spend the time with you adjusting the wheelchair to fit - we therefore require that you be present on handover to ensure we can do this.


Our active wheelchair hire features:

  • 17 inch seat width

  • Adjustable seat depth, seat height, footplate height, backrest height, backrest angle, and centre of gravity

  • Tension-adjustable backrest upholstery

  • Double locking fold-down backrest

  • Removable anti-tips

  • Discreet fold-down push handles

  • Tubular open footrest

  • Low profile scissor lock brakes

  • Puncture-resistant Marathon Plus tyres

  • Stylish matt charcoal grey frame

  • Axiom G comfort cushion

If your needs fit outside of this, then please discuss them with us, as we may be able to help in some cases.

Hire Service

We offer a flexible hire service that is ideal for those who are not sure how long they will need an active wheelchair for. This is particularly suited to those trying one out prior to purchase or while waiting for repairs to their own equipment. The minimum hire period is just two weeks, and payment is then taken on a fortnightly rolling basis until you return your equipment.

While hiring from us, your wheelchair is covered by our inclusive repair or replace service: if you experience a problem, our trained technicians will come out to either repair the wheelchair on-site, or replace it with another. Our active wheelchairs are also fully insured for international travel, with no excess, and wear and tear covered, giving you peace of mind as you travel.
