wheelchair shenanigans

Blog (wheelchair shenanigans)

As many of you might know I have two power wheelchairs:

1. The hospital funded wheelchair which I gently used as a daily driver just because of its size and nimble turning circle, plus also this wheelchair if Repairs are needed will be funded by the state. So this means that in many ways the TA (hospital funded wheelchair is more practical uses an everyday driver)

2. The second wheelchair which I personally own is called A Frontier V6 by magic mobility of Australia. This wheelchair is truly bigger than life, and this is the wheelchair during the summer that I prefer to use if possible. Recently I had new tires fitted at a pretty reasonable price and I started using this wheelchair again particularly as my everyday driver wheelchair due to given service soon.

Yesterday I took the frontier out on a reasonably long run for the first time August of this year, I think it is a real advantage to have two different kinds of wheelchairs on tap for different use cases

I've taken, to use this wheelchair as my primary mode of transport mainly because it's nimble and it's easier to use inside the house and also quick!
But very soon I think I will definitely need a new set of tyres across the 2000 km mark in the wheelchair now not particularly excessive as far as mileage is concerned in four years I know :-).
2009 km and miles is 1248.33 miles for those of you that don't use kilometres, by comparison my other wheelchair a frontier V6 has approximately about 960 km may be slightly more but under a thousand anyway from my recollection :-).
It was definitely the best decision I made to get lights on both my wheelchairs and I would strongly press if you do much with your wheelchairs at all to get lights of some kind, as these greatly aid and visibility and safety when in darker conditions :-).
The TA IQ has been the most reliable power wheelchair I have owned. The only true weak points with this brand I think is some of the drive inhibits which are enabled when the wheelchair goes into elevation mode. You can barely move (especially backwards). I know there are some manufacturers of other brands wheelchairs that have enabled their brands to go at a higher speed.
