What is the lightest folding electric wheelchair?
The lightest folding electric wheelchair is the Joy Rider Folding power chair which weighs 23kg! It is currently £2399.00 ex vat and vat exemption is available to anyone with any chronic condition or disability.
The Joy Rider lightweight folding electric wheelchair is just 23kg meaning that it can be lifted in and out of the car boot by many people.
It folds easily and is just as easy to drive and control thanks to the simple joystick controls. The Joy Rider is perfect for use indoors and also outside on fairly flat ground – if you need something to tackle rougher or tougher terrain just look on down at the bottom of this article for some ideas.
It folds and unfolds in just two seconds – and folds flat just like the Zinger wheelchair. Pull the cable, turn it on and you are ready to go!
It is airline approved too so you can bring this on holiday as the battery is under the 300 Wh limit (We strongly recommend you contact your airline prior to travel as standard).
The Lithium Ion battery is easily removed and you do have the option of purchasing an additional battery which can easily be put in place and increases your range.
The Lithium battery can be charged on or off the chair, so if your Joyrider is in the boot of the car, the battery can be brought inside to be charged.
A full charge takes around four hours and will get you a range of up to 8 miles.
When folded, you can pull the Joyrider wheelchair behind you on it’s rear wheels and the swing away footrests allow you to get in and out of the Joyrider easily.
It features adjustable anti-tippers and is easily charged by plugging the charging cable into the controller.

Handling inclines and electromagnetic braking:
When you want to stop, just release the joystick. The electromagnetic brakes built into the brushlesss motors will bring you a controlled stop and hold you firm on an incline.
The Joyrider can handle an incline of 12 degrees.
Swing away footrest:
The JoyRider’s patented Swing-Away Foot Plate permits your feet to remain on the ground.
This makes sitting down or stepping away from the JoyRider as easy as getting in or out of a kitchen chair.
Plus it allows you to rest your feet comfortably on the ground when stationary.
