Transforming the way you think about personal transport solutions.
A compact, lightweight and user-friendly powered wheelchair offering unrivalled value in its class. Easy to use, easy to fold, and easy to transport.
The Hedgehog was conceived for people with a range of specific needs. These include those with limited mobility or waiting for a diagnosis, who may not be entitled to, or have not applied for, an NHS wheelchair but who would still like an independence boost and to enjoy a more mobile lifestyle. SQPC-07A The Hedgehog is not intended to compete with NHS mobility solutions, or big lead acid-powered chairs or scooters, but rather to deliver mobility assistance to an often-neglected group, in a compact, lightweight and affordable package.
Uniquely for this type of folding wheelchair it will be made to your specific measurements, following a detailed needs and capability assessment.
It is easy to use, fold, charge and transport, hedgehog fits into your luggage and your lifestyle. One pull of a lever is all it takes to transform the compact cassette shape unit into a comfortable and reliable powered wheelchair. Two powerful battery packs deliver a range of nearly 20 miles and a fast five hour charge adds up to the perfect everyday travelling companion in one simple, streamlined package. Sensitive adjustable controls (which can be located on either arm) offer full command, when moving slowly or at max speed at 3.7 mph, which is perfect for walking speed, with the children in the park, or the shopping centre.
The compact design and pneumatic rear wheels make for a tight turning circle of less than one metre. Perfect for navigating supermarkets and small spaces, such manoeuvrability makes The Hedgehog at home even in Victorian terraces with narrow doorways!
