Wheelchair Powerpack Hire
The Wheelchair Powerpack fits to our Lightweight Foldable Wheelchair, Lightweight Elevated Leg Rest Wheelchair and Tilt in Space Wheelchair (Rea Azalea only), and relieves the strain of pushing a wheelchair with an occupant weighing up to 14 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 is 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.
Our wheelchair powerpack has a maximum carry capacity of 18 stone - please note that this includes the weight of the wheelchair and the powerpack too, which weigh a combined 4 stone. Therefore, for people over 14 stone, the Heavy Duty Powerpack will be necessary instead. Due to the heavier weight of the Azalea wheelchair, the Wheelchair Powerpack can only be used for patients up to 11 stone when hired with that wheelchair.
The Wheelchair Powerpack should be ordered alongside a Lightweight Foldable Wheelchair or a Lightweight Elevated Leg Rest Wheelchair; due to the massive variety of wheelchairs available, we are not able to supply brackets to fit the Powerpack to other models of wheelchair.
We no longer hire out the Wheelchair Powerpack - however, we do offer the Heavy Duty Powerpack that has a higher carry capacity.
