Ideal Travel electric Wheel Chair now a Reality
(Newswire.net--February 11, 2013)Gold Coast, AU-- Despite the incredible convenience brought about by the advent of the electric wheel chair, the real challenge thus far has been to find a lighter power source so as to enable the production of a truly portable electric wheelchair.
Until now portable electric wheelchairs have been a mere pipedream for those suffering from mobility impairment.
Every day, millions of electric wheelchair and mobility scooter users have to negotiate the added inconvenience and cost of getting around with their heavy and cumbersome equipment.
In order to help these users get around with their essential cargo, billions of dollars are essentially wasted on specialised mobility aids such as wheelchair ramps, hoists and specially adapted vehicles and public transport.
However, a dynamic firm based on the Australian Gold Coast is setting out to change all of that with the introduction of the "Portashopper™", a new light weight electric wheel chair that weighs less than 20 KG and which can literally be folded or unfolded in 5 seconds to pop into your car boot, a plane, train or any other vehicle.
Powered by the same new battery technology found in laptops and mobile phones, this ideal travel powerchair will scoot a user weighing up to 120KG along at jogging speed for around 15km per single 5 hour charge.
An extra battery weighing only 2KG fits into and is completely concealed by the wheelchair frame, thereby effectively providing a 30KM range.
"Normally these ground breaking innovations are hellishly expensive" says Mr Hilton Holder, CEO of Crikeymate Trading, "but due to the millions invested in advanced manufacturing automation by our Asian technology partners, these powerchairs are selling for around a quarter the price of the traditional lead-acid battery wheelchairs"
"Not only that, but these electric wheelchairs are built in a complete modular fashion allowing users to conduct warranty repairs by anyone who can use a screwdriver or Allen key."
Repairs and free servicing during the 3 year warranty period could also be taken care of by GS Electronics in Brisbane, Queenslands specialist wheelchair repair shop now in business since 1979.
The Portashopper™ has been approved by Lifetec, Australias national quango for the provison of mobility aid advice and will soon be available for viewing at all metro area Independent Living Centres, but until then they are available online and come with a 30 day Money back Guarantee. Paypal secure electronic transactions also provide rock solid buyer protection.
All things come to those who wait, but some would believe they've waited long enough already. More at http://lightestelectricwheelchair.com/
