E-Traveller 180 Ergo Portable Powerchair builds on the design principles of the E-Traveller 180 and Flex, with the addition of an adjustable, ergonomic backrest. The ergonomic backrest features two lateral supports, which have 5 height adjustment and a depth adjustment option. Constructed using a high-quality mesh fabric that allows for airflow and breathability, this backrest is well suited for Australian conditions. The lateral supports have springs which flex with the chair’s movement as you drive and assist in keeping you in a more comfortable upright position, thereby dampening any impacts. The contoured seat cushion further adds to assist in promoting a good posture and relieving pressure.
The footrest of the folding wheelchair folds-up flush against the chair, meaning that front transfers are nice and easy. If you prefer a side transfer that’s not a problem, simply lift either of the armrests to allow you to slide in and out of your chair. As all E-traveller 180 models, the Ergo comes equipped with large 12inch rear tyres with substantial tread, meaning this bad boy can handle a multitude of different surfaces. The Ergo also folds in one step and can free-stand on its own before it goes into the back of your car or on your next flight. Powered by lithium, this wheelchair goes up to a massive 25km on a full charge. If you’re looking for versatility and comfort for back issues, this folding electric wheelchair is the one for you.
Available in a standard and wide model, the E-Traveller Ergo is a great electric-wheelchair for use at home, in your neighbourhood or to take travelling. If you require further support, you can opt for a fully adjustable headrest as an optional extra.
