HiI am new to this site & am
interested in finding out if anyone
who uses a wheelchair has heard of the Trekinetic? This is an all
terrain (& I mean all terrain!) lightweight chair. The k2 is a
manual chair & the GTE is a powered chair which can also be used in a
manual position, which is beneficial for those who want to maintain
upper body strength, but can switch to power if tired. The chair is
easily folded & will fit into almost any car. This chair is suitable
for children as we have a hyperforma shape adjustable insert seat, as
the child grows the seat is removed, therefore no need for a new chair! 
This is a very brief
description of the Trekinetic. If anyone would like to see it in action
our wesite is Whilst this chair has
been in circulation since 2006, it is quite an unknown entity,
therefore beyond the boundary's are trying to get it 'out there' so
anyone choosing a new chair has knowledge of it.If anyone might be
interested in a demo, please contact us via the website or on 07885
059990 so we can discuss this further. Vivienne ...
