Foldalite: The Intelligent Powerchair Range

Foldalite powered electric wheelchair

The whole point of mobility aids like wheelchairs and mobility scooters is to get you out and about, living a life filled with all the things you love doing. But if your chosen travel aid isn’t adaptable and flexible in its design to be transportable, you might find the limitations frustrating.

You’ll see hundreds of powerchairs on the market which claim to be clever in their design, but the Foldalite really breaks the mould for intelligent and intuitive mobility aids.

Perfect for Going Places

You’ll only need to spend a few minutes getting to grips with the design and mechanics of the Foldalite before you’ll be comfortable folding and unfolding it for car boot storage. When you get going, just fold the chair into a compact package and slide it into your car. When you arrive at your destination, just manoeuvre a few moving parts back into place and start your day. Easy. It only weighs 25 kg / 4 stone, so it won’t be difficult to lift.

Comfortable Outdoors

The Foldalite Pro incorporates a rear wheel suspension system for additional comfort over uneven terrain.

At the core of the Foldalite’s convenient design is its ability to take you comfortably outdoors. You’ve got a removable seat cushion and a multi-position adjustable backrest, as well as a solid adjustable footrest and adjustable leg guards to suit any sized user. The brushless motors on each rear wheel offer plenty of power to get you wherever you want to go, too. These motors are more efficient and provide more in the way of long-term performance, meaning you can rely on the Foldalite for years.

The Foldalite employs other top-of-the-range components, like the 10Ah lithium-ion battery. Capable of managing an impressive 15 km / 9 miles between charges, this li-ion battery will have a lower rate of self-discharge and will require little in the way of maintenance, so you can keep going for longer without purchasing a replacement.

If you opt for the Foldalite Pro, an upgraded model with a larger frame, you’ll also get the benefits of a sophisticated suspension system. The Foldalite Pro will absorb the shock of travelling over uneven surfaces, like gravel or deteriorating pavements, so that you can be comfortable when you’re in the chair and after you’re out of it.


Both of the powerchairs in the Foldalite range are complemented by a collection of useful accessories. If you travel frequently, the Foldalite Travel Case will make your life much easier. Built like a normal suitcase, the Travel Case will comfortably house your powerchair and keep it protected from damage while you travel through airports, train stations and ports.

You can also keep your essential gadgets nearby with the adjustable Smart Phone Holder, stay refreshed while you’re on the go with the Cup Holder and stay safe in low light conditions with the Flashlight.
