【旅弧】沒有Ergo Lite,我就無法旅行!

我們每一年都會出國旅行幾個月,為了滿足我在旅程上的需求,去年三月我們買了Ergo Lite。

至目前為止,我們去年花了三個月橫跨美國,而最近我們花了三個月橫跨澳洲。

我們稍微把它改造了一下,把腳踏板移除,換上一條橫槓,成為我腳踏的地方!如此一來,椅子更輕更小,出國搭飛機的時候,我可以把它放在座位上方的置物箱內,這樣一來,當我們抵達目的地時,就不用等航空公司人員把它送來給我,也不用帶著拆下來的腳踏板四處走,省力又方便。

這輛車載著我,走過各種你可以想像的地形和路況,在旅程中,它常常在後車廂中被搬進搬出,被推進公車或是火車等大型運輸工具,但是它的車況看起來還是和新的一樣。我們把比較小的背包,掛在手把上,在機場時,我把容量為75公升的後背包放在我的膝蓋上,這輛車總是有辨法處理我們加諸在它身上的重量。

我貼上一些圖片給大家,讓你知道這輛車有多麼出色,還有我有多麼仰賴它。 我曾經有一輛Z-Tecm使用了三個月,它的前輪就已破損不堪,我對它失去了信心,我想它應該撐不過如同Karma輪椅歷經的旅程,也沒辨法通過Harpenden郊區路況的考驗。我的Karma輪椅是如此的舒適,我在使用它好幾個小時的情況下,從來沒有背痛或其他部位疼痛的問題產生! 它對路況的高度適應性讓我有很深刻的印象,不管什麼樣的路況,它都能輕鬆處理。我回到家之後,有另一台更大尺寸的輪椅供我使用。

請將這封信,和對於什麼是優良設計的輪椅有興趣的人分享!

【旅弧】I can’t travel without Ergo Lite!!
In March last year we bought an Ergo Lite Transit wheelchair for me to use
while travelling to other countries, which we do for several months every year.

So far, it has spent 2 weeks, then 3 months across the States last year and, recently, 3 months across Australia.

We have adapted it slightly by removing the feet and moving the material bar downwards, fixing it with bolts, and that is where I put my feet.

This makes the chair lighter and smaller, which means it fits into the closets inside the larger airplanes and I dont  have to worry about it being in the hold or waiting for the airline staff to bring it to me when weve landed . I also dont have to worry about carrying the feet around.

This chair has been pushed and dragged over every kind of terrain you can imagine and it has been incredible, putting up with any punishment and with me in it, of course. We are always on road trips so it is hauled in and out of cars, pushed into shuttle buses, trains and hoists and it looks as good as new. We put our smaller backpacks onto the handles and, through the airports, I carry my 75 litre backpack across my knees too: still the chair just takes everything we do with it.

I am attaching some photos just to give you an idea of how brilliant this chair is and how much I rely on it. I hade a Z-Tec but in 3 months both of the front wheel shattered and I lost faith in it, it would never have survived the travelling the Karma has, it was unable to survive the environs of Harpenden! My Karma is so comfortable and I never have any back problems or any other aches and pains when using it, which can be several hours. I am very impressed with the flexibility in it, which means it moves with whatever surface it is going over. When we are at home, I do have a larger-wheeled chair for independence.

Please share this letter with those who would be interested in knowing what a great design this chair is.
