Progeo Tekna Advance Wheelchair

Progeo's Tekna Advance is an ultra-light folding wheelchair featuring a cleanly designed frame that gives it the open and elegant appearance of a rigid wheelchair.

Product Description

Open Folding Frame

The Progeo Tekna Advance Wheelchair is designed to fold up for transport or storage, but looks nothing like the traditional folding wheelchair. It does away with the bulky dual frame and prominent crossbar usually seen, and instead features a rearward fixed crossbar system that is discreetly hidden under the seat. The shortened folding frame and fixed, integrated front end help to keep weight to a minimum, and closely resemble the lines of a sporty rigid wheelchair.


There's no question about it, Progeo's Tekna Advance is a wheelchair that stands out. It features the elegant sophistication associated with Italian design, and has a choice of four frame colours - black, silver, white and orange - which can be offset with your choice from nine accent colours.


Your Tekna Advance will be built to order to precisely match your requirement. At your assessment, our specialists will take your measurements so the Tekna can be built for a precise fit, as well as run over all the options available to match your lifestyle needs. All parts of the wheelchair can be configured - options include ever-popular Spinergy wheels, ergonomic handrims, sports castors, adjustable footrests, carbon sideguards, and a whole array of seating.

While not quite as adjustable as more basic models, the Tekna Advance still has a good amount of adjustability to it, including rear wheel position, backrest height and angle, and front seat height. Supportive backrests can be fitted if required, as well as a wide range of pressure-relieving cushions.

Our Verdict

There's only one folding active wheelchair that is close to the Tekna Advance - Quickie's Xenon2, which has the same clean design to its frame. The Xenon is a little lighter, but also more expensive - we would recommend trying both to see which suits you best.

If you require swing-away legrests instead of a fixed-front, then the Tekna Advance Swing is the model to look at.

Active wheelchairs are built to order following an assessment with one of our Prescriptive Assessors. They are available with a wide range of customisation options, from wheels to seating to style upgrades, and these can affect the price - our Prescriptive Assessors will run through all the options at your assessment. As a general guideline, we find most people will spend around an additional £500 - £1,500 on customisation options on active wheelchairs; however it is possible to get a fully functioning and desirable chair at the base price!

People purchasing active wheelchairs will normally qualify for zero-rated VAT. If the person using the wheelchair has a permanent disability, terminal illness or chronic sickness then they will be eligible for 0% VAT. Our Prescriptive Assessors will be able to answer any questions you may have about VAT.
