Features Transforming your access to the world
Support & Comfort: Inspired by the company founder’s background in Formula One racing, the K2 Trekinetic has a unique Carbon Fibre Monocoque Chassis. Using such a lightweight and strong material is transformational 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 K2 Trekinetic is its sheer portability. The chair only weights 17kg. Furthermore, because the chair has a number of quick release parts (no tools are required and you can break down the chair within 2 minutes). 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 tha tyou 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 stabilise you 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 K2 chair 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.

ALL TERRAIN WHEELCHAIR VAT EXEMPTION
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.
