Power Assisted Wheelchair Package Hire
- Takes the strain of pushing
- Light and transportable
- Long 9 mile range
- No assembly required
Our Power Assisted Wheelchair Package offers a lightweight wheelchair and powerpack to take the strain off pushing a wheelchair. The discreet powerpack helps you tackle hills, kerbs and longer distances, allowing you to save your energy for the important things in life. Combining our most popular Lightweight Foldable Wheelchair with the new Empulse R20 powerpack, this package provides a relief to those who struggle with pushing, whilst remaining extremely transportable.
The incredibly easy to use control system requires just one button to be pushed to go. The easy to read display shows both your speed and battery gauges, while the speed can be changed between three settings - up to a maximum 3 mph, a good walking pace. With a powerful 250W brushless motor and lithium ion battery, your power-assisted wheelchair has a 9 mile range, can climb kerbs up to 5 cm, and manage 10° slopes with ease. Steering is a breeze with no hindrance at all from the powerpack, allowing tight manoeuvring, for example with indoors. Our user-friendly combination is perfect for people who would otherwise struggle with pushing a wheelchair.
Light and Transportable
Our Lightweight Foldable Wheelchair has long been renowned for its transportability - easy to fold up, and weighing a mere 13.5 kg. The Empulse R20 powerpack complements this perfectly - it is the only powerpack that can be folded up with the wheelchair, saving you from having to disconnect and reconnect it each time you travel. The powerpack itself weighs just 3 kg, and the lithium battery is a mere 1.4 kg - keeping your Power Assisted Wheelchair ultra-light and highly transportable. Your wheelchair and powerpack can be folded up together, and fit into the back of almost all cars.
A stylish and modern combination, our Power Assisted Wheelchair Package is available for hire now. Simply place your order by 3.30 pm on a weekday, and we can get it delivered to you the next day.

For peace of mind, the team at Wheelfreedom are never far away. Should anything go wrong with your wheelchair or powerpack during your period of hire, we aim to replace it within 24 hours, and take away the faulty equipment at the same time free of charge.
The minimum hire charge is £105 (ex VAT) which covers you for up to two weeks rental. This offers a highly competitive price, especially when you consider that this includes the replacement service, and full international insurance.
We can deliver our power assisted wheelchair to you on a next morning service at any UK mainland destination other than the highlands and islands of Scotland. We can therefore have a wheelchair waiting at your holiday residence to allow all the family mobility and independence. When you are finished with your hire we will simply collect the wheelchair and powerpack again in our unique transport box, making the rental of our wheelchairs hassle free.
Delivery and collection are covered by a charge of £15 (ex VAT) each way, which we take at the time of order.
