Roma Reno 2 Powerchair
The Reno 2 is a compact and manoeuvrable powered wheelchair, designed for getting around tight spaces indoors. Available at a budget price, the Roma Reno 2 is an ideal solution for those needing an affordable but reliable electric wheelchair for indoor use.
A top speed of 4mph is more than sufficient for indoor use, and the controller is simple to use, suitable for those who may not have much experience using an electric wheelchair before. A tight turning circle allows it to navigate the narrow spaces one often encounters indoors.
The Reno 2 is easy to dismantle, with no tools required, and is therefore well-suited to those who may need to transport it between locations. This allows it to be transported in a car in much the same way that a boot scooter could be, with each part easy to lift. The footrest can also be flipped up for storage, so the wheelchair takes up the minimum amount of space necessary.
While not suitable for those with advanced seating or postural needs, the Reno's seat is comfortable padded, with a weight capacity of up to 21 stone (136 kg). The armrests are adjustable to ensure the comfort of the person in the wheelchair, and to allow easy transfer into and out of the seat.
A range of up to 12.5 miles is more than enough to cover daily indoor use. While designed for indoor use, the Reno 2 does have some limited outdoor capabilities on wholly flat paved areas; however, it will struggle with ramps, hills or uneven surfaces (including bumpy pavements), particularly with its lack of suspension.
The Reno is available in either red or blue, and an upgrade to a higher back captain's-style seat is available for a small increase in price.
A handy storage basket under the seat allows the wheelchair user to carry their essentials around with them hands-free. Overall, the Reno offers impressive performance for its cost, and is a reliable indoor wheelchair. If you are interested in the Reno 2, we would also recommend looking at the Pride New Go Chair, which is a more modern indoor-only powerchair with on-board storage and a larger battery for a longer range.
