Whats the best value for money fencing wheelchair.
We are looking to source 8 wheelchairs for a European wheelchair fencing centre. (the facility is providing wheelchairs for the participants) As the wheel chairs are not being moved about weight is not an issue. The wheels chairs need to made so they can by ambidextrous by moving the side bar to either side. Also rugged as they will get a lot of use. Any recommendations or advice?
we could not find a sturdy wheelchair when we wanted one.
Ended up modifying a sports tennis wheelchair (quickhit)by Motivation costing less than £500
when the wheel camber was taken out the chair sits almost exactly at the right height. We have welded on a grab rail/bar but with bosses welded to the frame the bar from your fencing chair/barstool could be fitted.
The main advantage is it's made of steel and it's easy to modify and is repairable by almost any car garage......and has been.!
