The Airhawk Folding Power Wheelchair considered the “World’s Lightest Power Wheelchair” is a popular product. It’s manufactured from quality products in China. From our experience and what we hear, the airhawk can be driven hard, put away wet and still perform well. But, we do think this chair is perfect for certain profiles more than others.
Seniors who are slowing down but not eager to stop going out or being mobile tend to favor the Airhawk to other mobility scooters for several reasons. First, the Airhawk only weights 41 lbs. Not only that, it folds and fits nicely in most cars. The task of folding and unfolding the airhawk power folding wheelchair is simple and does not require more than one part to be used, like some of the folding mobility scooters do.
The average person walks at a speed of 3.1 mph and the Airhawk’s top speed is 4mph, which makes it suitable for travel to destination parks (Disney) – cruise ships and more. Point being, with a 26 mile range on full batteries and top speed of 4mph, the Airhawk Wheelchair will last a day at the park with family and friends.
Charges quickly, is sturdy, is light, is comfortable and is easy to use. Fits in the back seat or trunk of most cars. No additional lifts or other equipment needed and you can take this folding power wheelchair with you because the batteries are travel safe and documented.
With a wheelbase of 23″ you will need to plan ahead and make certain you schedule your stay on the cruise line’s handicapped accessible rooms. The standard width is 21.5, which would not allow for smoothly driving in and out of the room.
The Airhawk Power Wheelchair is very popular right now because of it’s weight, ease of use, travel ability and performance. We rate this product a “Thumbs up!”
