The Freedom Chair is a folding electric wheelchair that folds in literally a few seconds. It enjoys excellent build quality and uses standard batteries across the range.

Have a look at the video below to see how easy this is!

This is an ideal chair for day trips and excursions and the armrests fold up allowing for easy side access or transfer as required.

The small footprint of the Freedom chair, and compact folded dimensions mean it is also ideal for those living in apartments or where space is at a premium.

The Freedom range enjoys great build quality and is ISO, CE and FDA approved. All models come with an under seat storage zipped bag as standard.

The joystick controls are incredibly easy to use and very smooth.

Do you need attendant controls?

This is no problem. Just include the optional accessory and your Freedom chair will arrive with the controls mounted at the rear so a carer can control speed and direction etc.

Your Freedom chair has a wrap around travel bag supplied as standard to protect it from scratches in transit.

Anti tip bars are included as standard - they are built in to the A06 model and can be removed on the A08 model.
