With hints of summer in the air it’s time to start thinking about how you’re going to get out and about during those long, warm days. We here at CareCo stock such a varied range of wheelchairs that it can be hard to choose between what’s available, especially when every chair offers its own features and benefits. With that being said, are you someone looking for independence but occasionally need the assistance of an attendant or carer? We believe we have designed the perfect solution for you – the I-GO Airrex LT Self Propelled Wheelchair.
What makes the I-GO Airrex stand out from the rest is its functionality. Comprised of a lightweight aluminium frame, with a carry weight of only 1st 6lbs (9.1kg), the chair is fitted with standard solid, transit wheelchair wheels AND removable self-propelled wheelchair wheels – it’s two chairs in one!
When used as a self-propelled wheelchair the I-GO Airrex gives the user back their independence, letting them get on with their day without the need of an attendant. The self-propelled wheels have been designed with comfort in mind, with wide-set pushing rims making the chair easy to drive, whether you choose to wear wheelchair gloves or not. Its self-propel option is ideal for those looking to get about alone, increasing self-confidence and the sense of independence and freedom. It’s also great for improving your fitness and mobility, as pushing yourself in the chair increases your upper-body strength. Furthermore, its hard-wearing rubber tyres are able to tackle a range of terrains, giving you the opportunity to travel further than ever!
However, for those times when you require some help. With its comfortable, easy-clean upholstery, padded armrests and adjustable footrests , the chair is ideal for use over long periods of time, great for days out or shopping trips with family and friends. Your attendant can be sure they’re in control the whole time through the use of the chair’s push handles, ensuring a smooth, bump-free journey.
When folded the chair is compact and easy to carry, measuring in at only 36cm (14in) wide, great for storing at home or in your car boot, or taking away with you on holiday, either home or abroad. Plus, despite its light weight and small size the I-GO Airrex can accommodate for user weight up 21st 4lbs (135kg), opening up a new way to travel for a wide range of users.
With its many great features, superb level of functionality and comfort, and ability to be transformed in an instant, why go to the trouble of paying for two wheelchairs – and trying to store both – when you could invest in the I-GO Airrex?
