Attached and detached in seconds, compact and easily transportable in any vehicle the Light Drive will give wheelchair users independence to go where they want when they want. Designed and compatible for all manual wheelchairs and also available in attendant, children’s and heavy duty versions.
The LIGHT DRIVE let me regain my freedom and independence … it really does go anywhere, nothing stops it: stony paths, grass, even steep ascents and descents, and it’s effortless! It even manages the pavements in town: first class! What a comfort it is to go for a stroll without having to struggle with pushing my wheelchair, to be able to chat with one’s friends in peace, … getting about has become natural!
This is my 2nd Light Drive. The previous one is 9 years old and I’ve recently changed my wheelchair so I’ve decided to replace my power add-on! My new one is red. The previous one is still working well! I am still using it to avoid damaging the new one. What convinced me at that time and still today is the ease to use the Light Drive, easy to put on and remove from the wheelchair, easy to transport. I’ve travelled to many places with Light Drive, by plane or by train.
Just when you think things could not get any better, along comes carbon fibre! The APEX is by far the easiest chair I have ever pushed! and the fewer pounds make lifting the chair a breeze. I am also loving the Newton Airgrip handrims, nice and sticky and no plastic or rubber coating to gauge and peel off. At first, I was intrigued by the shape of the front end, more squared than curved like others. Then I grabbed that flat, padded area when transferring in and I was like, “Oh wow! This makes sense!” Off I went! What a difference a fewer pounds makes in combination with the carbon fibre frame. It was a blast! One test-drive and I was sold!
Now that I have upgraded from titanium to carbon fibre, it is easy to say that I am in the lightest chair I have ever owned. There are many positives about the carbon fibre material: less vibration, light transfers, durable, etc. Furthermore, carbon fibre speaks to my spirit. The things that stuck out the most was the actual design of the chair. For example, the extra platform with padding on the front of the frame… pure genius! It is easy and does not add stress to your hands because of the ergonomic design
The Wolturnus Hawk has changed my life in the best way possible. It has given me my independence and freedom without compromising on style or comfort. As I travel in cars a fair amount, it is important that a wheelchair is small and light enough and the Hawk definitely covers that! It is compact enough to be able to fit into almost any boot or even on the backseat. Another bonus it that it is extremely easy to assemble as the frame is so lightweight which also helps out when using and manoeuvring the wheelchair.
