Francis our product specialist had the pleasure of providing Michelle with our new all terrain wheelchair package.  The package includes the Excel G Explorer wheelchair, and is supplied with a Freewheel, folding chair adaptor and compatible shims. 

The family purchased the kit as they wanted to propel over terrain that their normal wheelchair found problematic. In the amazing weather Michelle and her family were able to visit the Mussenden Temple, travelling over grass, muck and stone lanes with ease.

The wheelchair package is perfect for those looking to travel over rougher terrain

The G Explorer wheelchair is kitted out with mountain bike tyres, and it has a lightweight yet durable frame.

It can fit into almost any car boot making long drives no hassle. The backrest angle has also been adjusted to give the user a more natural seating position, providing perfect precision lumbar support. To make the attendant experience more comfortable the chair has height adjustable handles, this makes pushing easier for the attendant. The chair not only looks great but offers great control.

The Freewheel is an all-terrain add-on that fits both rigid and folding wheelchairs.

The large wheel provides less resistance and allows your chair to roll over almost any surface with ease. It weights under 2.3kg, making it extremely lightweight and transportable.
