So sit back, relax and take a look.
Wouldn’t it be great to have an innovative, foldable electric wheelchair that is also a joy to ride. The Joy Rider is derived from the very successful Zinger folding powered chair which introduced a ground-breaking innovation.
Sharing the same modern, simple lightweight design the chair is now joystick controlled for ease of use allowing the user to choose the speed and the direction of travel. The versatile powered chair can be used both indoors and outdoors due to its excellent turning circle. A pair of brushless motors controls the chairs rear wheels with speeds up to 4mph.
To help you decide if the Joy Rider is right for you, we can arrange a free, no obligation home demonstration.
