TREKINETIC GTE (Adult Powered Wheelchair)


GTE is one of the most cutting edge powerchairs in the world. The unique high strength, low weight design means it is 75% lighter than most powerchairs available (GTE weighs 36kg compared to most powered wheelchairs which weigh 100kg+) and can fit in nearly all standard cars without the need for costly adapted vehicles or car hoists. Crucially, this means you can be confident travelling with the chair not only in your own car but also in other peoples vehicles including: taxis, trains and airplane holds. With its Formula One inspired carbon fibre monocoque design, the chair is extremely tough and versatile, working equally well inside a house on pavements and roads and off road.

The only real way to experience what the Trekinetic chair can do for you is to try it out and so to find out more about booking a demonstration, please call 0203 051 0157 or email or complete the contact form. To learn more about the demonstration please click here.

Features Transforming your access to the world

Support & Comfort: Inspired by the company founder’s background in Formula One racing, the GTE Trekinetic has a unique Carbon Fibre Monocoque Chassis. Using such lightweight and strong materials is transformatonal in wheelchair design because it disposes of the need for the metal chassis, which means the chair is much lighter to move around and get in and out of the car. In addition, the seat can be configured into a much more supportive ergonomic shape that makes sitting in the chair for longer periods more comfortable.

Portability: One of the most exciting features of the GTE Trekinetic Powerchair is its sheer portability. The chair only weights 36kg. Furthermore, because the chair has a number of quick release parts (no tools are required and you can breakdown the chair within 2 minutes), it is easy to remove the wheels and battery, which leaves a residual weight of 15kg. Ultimately, this means you are free to travel the world by car, plane, boat and train!! For those wanting to stay closer to home you can be confident of getting to and from your workplace, hotels etc.
Accessibility: The combination of having large wheels engineered to be positioned at the front of the chair with a rear smaller rear wheel bias system,gives the power chair a fantastic feel during adventures, on paths, across fields, on the beach in the snow etc etc. With steeper paths the highly engineered brakes give you excellent speed and steering control so that you don’t have to hang onto the wheels when going downhill. In addition, the adjustable variable wheel camber system gives you the option of exceptional off road stability when using a slanted angle. The nitrogen shock absorber helps to stabilise the chair on uneven ground, whilst also enabling you to change the rear angle of the seat so you feel safe in your chair on steeper slopes.

Versatility: Whilst the GTE Trekinetic Powerchair is well known for its smooth ride outside both on and off road, many customers are initially surprised that it also works fantastically well inside. The chair has a tiny turning circle making it great to use in confined spaces and in its upright position it can get through nearly all standard size doors. With its anti tip system you can slowly tip the chair forwards onto its footplate and retrieve items off the floor

With a manual mode the GTE gives you the option of periodically switching the power support on and off. This opens up a range of new exciting options for the user. For example, if you don't require powered support all the time you can take the chair out in manual mode  and have a fantastic workout. Once you are suitably fatigued you can switch to the power mode. You also won't be stuck if the battery runs out!

Below we have compiled a simple guide to help you understand who is eligible to claim VAT relief on disability aids. VAT exemption allows chronically sick or disabled people to buy eligible items at 0% VAT. To be eligible for VAT relief the government says you have to fit the following criteria:
You must be a person who is 'chronically sick or disabled'.

A person who is 'chronically sick or disabled' falls in one of two categories:
1.    Someone with a physical or mental impairment which has a long-term and substantial adverse effect upon his/her ability to carry out everyday activities; with a condition which the medical profession treats as a chronic sickness, such as diabetes; or

2.    Someone who is terminally ill.
Important Note: It does NOT include a frail elderly person who is otherwise able-bodied or any person who is only temporarily disabled or incapacitated, such as with a broken limb.
