Mobility for all, with no exceptions

Everyone deserves the opportunity to live his or her life to the full, and that includes being able to get out and about, whatever mobility challenges might arise. Every wheelchair has a maximum weight capacity, and it is commonly around 115kg (18 stone) despite the fact that there are more people weighing between 20 and 30 stone today than ever. The Explorer provides a mobility lifeline to those in this category.

Complete comfort and safety on the go

Getting out and about in a wheelchair can be a liberating experience when you are living with limited mobility. But it can also be a little nerve-racking especially at first, and particularly for those of a larger build. The Explorer’s sturdy construction will ensure you feel safe and secure, even when negotiating difficult terrain such as uneven surfaces or steep slopes. It’s perfectly named, so get out and explore!

Great durability and low maintenance

The Explorer’s carbon steel frame is built to last, and is given extra protection by the coated frame with its sleek black finish. The upholstery is equally hard-wearing, and the double-embossed vinyl provides both comfort and practicality, while being easy to keep clean and fresh. Solid rubber tyres mean no pumping up or worrying about punctures on a wheelchair that is low maintenance and easy to live with.

Fully adjustable for optimum comfort

When the designers set about creating the Explorer, they were determined that it must provide a safe and comfortable ride for all shapes and sizes. There’s no need for compromises here, the seat height and footrests can all be adjusted to get the set up just right for you, and the armrests can be removed for easier transport. You’ll also notice the seat is extra soft and well padded. Even on a bumpy surface, you’ll feel at ease and ready for the path ahead.
