The Foldaway Wheelchair is such a brilliant design, easy to fold for storage, fits into the boot of a small car and weighs only 45 lbs, the big plus for us is because of the Polymer Li-ion battery pack, we can take it on a flight. We have recently been to Ireland to visit our Daughter who lives in Galway, being able to take the Foldaway made all the difference. The batteries are long lasting, and can be recharged in place, the Foldaway comes with one battery but I would recommend buying the second one, as they fit neatly into the frame and gives you twice the mileage. This lightweight wheelchair has given the world back to my Husband…Priceless!!
