“My Heavy Duty F&G wheelchair arrived in early June, 2018. As an avid traveler and photographer with increasingly limited walking ability, I bought this wheelchair to extend my access to new places, and to save my dear wife a lot of pushing!
It has handled all kinds of terrain and steep slopes on 21 different trails in Glacier National Park, the Canadian Rockies and the North Cascades. Cross-slopes can be challenging but I have figured out how to keep it under control. We have also successfully flown with it to Copenhagen, London and Dubai, and we have figured out how to minimize its impact on the TSA. We have taken it on cruises to Greenland and through the Suez Canal, and it has completely eliminated my concerns about slipping on wet decks!
It has given me great photographic access to some beautiful and unusual places. It has held up to very heavy use, conquering the streets of Copenhagen Denmark, Alesund Norway, Halifax Nova Scotia, and Gibraltar. It has endured cobblestones in Obidos Portugal, Rome Italy and the island of Rhodes, climbed steep hills in Valletta Malta, held up in cold rainy weather on trails at the Geysir Thermal Area and the mighty Gullfoss waterfall in Iceland, and covered very long distances in Dubai UAE. None of this would have been possible if I had to walk in these places.
I appreciate the fact that I can contact FOLD & GO and get a personalized and speedy response to my questions and needs. This well-designed and well-built device has brought back much of the mobility I enjoyed when I was young – it has been truly liberating.”
