[AD] Mountain Trike specialise in all-terrain wheelchairs that empower and grow with the user
The Mountain Trike Company believe that everyone should be able to access the outdoors, no matter what your ability might be. They design a range of all-terrain wheelchair products for outdoor use and ease of use over uneven terrain. Using high end mountain bike technology, all products have air suspension and hydraulic brakes, lightweight aluminium frames, all fully tested for your ultimate comfort and safety.
All products are highly practical and fold up to fit in the boot of most cars, and are compact and manoeuvrable enough to go for a country ride. Parklands, gravel, the beach, cobbled streets, mud, snow and even mountains are all accessible thanks to these revolutionary all-terrain wheelchairs.
The range has also been designed with customer changing needs in mind and the whole range is modular making these products more affordable and flexible. Adaptations are offered which make them suitable for children so the chair can grow with your child right through to adulthood.
The all-terrain wheelchair range include manual as well as electric power assist options. The lever driven Mountain Trike and eTrike offers independent riding and the MT Push and ePush are perfect for families as the steering and braking takes place in the push handle located behind the rider.
The eTrike and recently launched ePush have proved to be extremely popular due to the flexibility of the electric assist – they can be ridden manually and simply switching to electric power mode when the going gets tough!
Customers can hand-pick the frame colour from a wide range of colour choices, some customisable features are available, free UK delivery and a three-year warranty is offered on all products.
The additional feature for Mountain Trike wheelchairs is the ability to convert the all-terrain wheelchair into a different model which offers even more flexibility and not having to go to the expense of buying a complete new chair. If at any point your circumstances change the MT Push can be converted into the Mountain Trike giving the rider the option to self-propel at a later point. And of course if the rider is no longer able to self-propel it can be converted into the MT Push. The eKit – electric power assist is available as a separate kit and can be fitted to the MT Push and Mountain Trike.
Cost can be an additional barrier when considering all-terrain wheelchair options. Mountain Trike offer various finance packages as well as 0% finance options. There are charities who also support families finding and funding the right adaptive equipment and Whizz Kids have recently started working with Mountain Trike.
Being reliant on a wheelchair for mobility should no longer mean that access to opportunities or ability to engage in what the user deems meaningful and important is inhibited.
Mountain Trike are exhibiting at Naidex, 22-23 March and the team will be on hand to talk about any specific adaptations you may require and they are happy to offer advice and help finding the right all-terrain wheelchair for your specific needs.
