Heavy Duty Wheelchair Powerpack Hire
Featuring a powerful motor, this powerpack fits to our wheelchairs, and can propel people of up to 21 stone. The controls are operated by an attendant, who simply has to walk behind with their thumb on the control, with the Powerpack doing all the work.
The Powerpack if fitted as standard with a reverse function, operated by a simple switch on the hand control, providing extra versatility and functionality.
No more struggling up hills, ramps or uneven ground; just press the lever and enjoy the effortless transportation the Powerpack provides. With speeds up to 4mph and a range of up to 10 miles per charge, there is more than enough capacity for most days out.
The powerpack is light enough to take anywhere, so is ideal for travel. The fully automatic charger simply plugs into the sealed and maintenance free battery at the end of the day, and an overnight charge will leave it ready for the next day.
The Wheelchair Powerpack should be ordered alongside one of our wheelchairs - it can be fitted to the Lightweight Foldable Wheelchair, Lightweight Elevated Leg Rest Wheelchair, or for those weighing over 18 stone the Heavy User Wheelchair. Please note that the Heavy Duty wheelchair powerpack's carry capacity of 26 stone includes the weight of the wheelchair and the powerpack too, which weigh a combined 5 stone. It is therefore not recommended for people weighing above 21 stone.
It can also fit to our Tilt in Space wheelchair, although due to the heavier weight of the Azalea Tilt in Space Wheelchair, the HD Wheelchair Powerpack can only be used for patients up to 18 stone when hired with that wheelchair.
