Well after much research I went to norwich to purchase the Foldawheel wheelchair.. I loved the design, the manoeuvrability and for me the comfort and ease of use and how small it it collapses down and goes in the boot of car..
Strengths
Manoeuvrability, slim profile, easy to use, comfort, very lightweight. Easy to fold, easy to store, lovely to use....
Weaknesses
None that I have found yet.....

Ingenious and highly portable powerchair with left or right hand control
We thought this chair was an extremely clever piece of engineering. It looks good and Its also well made and generally robust. My wife is unable to use her right arm and has limited movement of the right leg but I can fold and unfold the chair easily in seconds after a bit of practice and lift it into the car boot without difficulty. She finds it comfortable and extends the footrest and also easy to control. Its been easy to manoeuvre in shopping centres and on fairly smooth pavements without much of a camber. The lowest speed level seems fast enough to us and the battery life seems very good. Recharging is straightforward with the included charger Switching the control unit wires to the left hand side is a bit fiddly no written instructions for this but basically just requires looking how it is already fitted on the right taking it down and doing the same when refitting on the left. The manual appears to have been written by someone whose first language is not English but is generally understandable. However some parts are unclear such as the observation that the warranty is void if the user has not performed the full charge cycle regularly on the battery but without stating what the full charge cycle is or how often is regularly. It is also unclear if when using two batteries together they should be charged together or are better charged individually. We purchased the travel bag for the chair which seems good quality and good value and I think would be essential if transporting the chair on holiday, if not for everyday use We also purchased a second spare battery and the lead which allows both batteries to be used together if required. We think that that was probably a sensible investment given the overall cost of the chair. This is an expensive item but for us it has been worth it and my wife feels it has greatly improved her capacity for being more independent. It appears to be an excellent bit of kit but is not intended to be an off road powerchair and its certainly worth trying out the chair in a CareCo showroom before committing to it.We havent owned the chair long enough to comment on its reliability. The service from CareCo has been excellent throughout.
Strengths
Innovative and ingenious engineering. Well made. Lithium ion battery (spare/second battery can be purchased separately). Easy and convenient to store and transport. Joystick for either left or right handed control. The arms of the chair can be raised if necessary.
Weaknesses
Instruction manual could be improved. Relatively expensive. No brake when in manual mode. Protective travel case needs to be purchased separately but is good quality and value and probably essential.

Foldawheel from careco
Previous to purchase a lot of on line research was conducted and the foldawheel appeared to be the best solution. Important was to try before purchase and careco at Hayes had demonstation models in stock First of all the weight (although not light) was certainly capable of being carried by one hand by a fit and able person. (but like all other wheelchairs its the disabled who use them and lifting would be a struggle needs a geneus to solve that problem) the two modles were tried (1000 and 999) strangly the smaller model 999 was the most comfortable for me so TRY a Coxcyc cushion from careco completed the comfort. I am not tall but felt that the design would tend to favour shorter rather than tall people due to leg support. Manovability is excellent but if not used to a joystick take time (try for half an hour in a safe area)
Strengths
Welll made and feels solid, light weight compared to others easy to fold and open clever battery location. control can be changed from left hand to right hand with relative ease. Air line approved (but you will need the carry bag, remove joystick control and put in hand luggage for safety and disconnect batteries)
Weaknesses
A key lock would be nice to ensure accidental power on would be an advantage. The conversion from Left hand to Right hand and control removal is good and easy but with a bit of thought could have be easier (wire to both sides and perhaps fixed connector in to frame). but these a niggly little points. As it can take 2 batteries it shoud come with dual battery connector as standard.

Free again!
This has given me back independence. Just to be able to go out onto the patio and around the decking in my garden, without someone having to push me has given me back a freedom Ive not known for years. Going around the shops too. Now my husband has to do it at MY pace!
Strengths
All that I require.

Foldawheel
I have just received this chair this morning, and I must say it is very easy to fold up, a little but harder to put up again , but once I did it once it became easyer, and I really only have one hand that works, so if I can do it, you get the point
Strengths
Folding and store ie fits in car, and really so usful, ie shopping, I will use the chair for my discus training, and the fact it is maintenance free, you can even change control for right to left, I would really like to thank Paula for all her help and the speedy ness that she arranged to chair to be delivered
Weaknesses
I have not found any yet

foldawheel
Although the foldawheel is exactly what I was looking for, I do find it difficult to fold down, which is a shame because everything else about it is good, i find it has a good ground clearance, i am rather disappointed i wasnt offered a discount, as I collected the foldawheel my self from Brentwood, saving the company quite a few pounds, as they would have to have sent it to great yarmouth.
Strengths
The scooter has a good turning circle, it rides very well, is very comfortable and Responds smoothly when using the speed control.
Weaknesses
The weakness with this foldaway is the folding and unfolding, it is not easy, and i find it rather awkward, I also think if anyone collects the item they should be given a discount, i travelled over 100 miles and was offered nothing.

I do not have the strength to lift this chair , could it be safely lifted into the boot by electric hoist?
Answer By The CareCo Team

Thank you for your enquiry. As the Foldawheel Powerchair is the lightest electric wheelchair in the world provided your hoist is designed to lift items like this it should be fine to work with an electric hoist.
