The Traveler is a folding manual wheelchair. Thanks to its extremely torsion-resistant and reliable folding mechanism, the Traveler combines the driving characteristics of a rigid frame with the advantages of a folding wheelchair.

Clara from Edinburgh, Scotland submitted this review on January 14th 2009 at 07:40 AM. Clara is an end user who has less than a month of experience with the product.
Strengths:This chair is really, really small. I looked at other "small" chairs but they didn't fold up like this one does, and I was looking for something that would go into a single-seat aircraft locker.
You can "breathe in" this chair to fit through gaps that are a bit too small.
This is as secure a folding chair as I have ever tried, almost all of your push on a turn goes into performance, not rocking the chair.
Weaknesses:The factory is really slow, or was slow with my order anyway.
There are no folding push handles available, which is what I woudl have preferred.
It is quite hard to put the chair back to normal after you have used the function to get it through a small gap.
If you want to utilise the small fold it severely limits the choices of other options e.g. footrest.
Due to the fold mechanism it's not as light as simliar chairs.
You lose a lot of under-chair space to the fold mechanism, so problematic if you use an under-chair bag.

The more parts the more parts that can fail, and the more unusual the parts the harder they are to get...
Comments:I am speaking from the perspective of a part time wheelchair user. I don't generally use a chair inside the house, just in the kitchen perhaps.

As with most chairs, there are lots of discrepancies between the UK spec and the European spec (don't know about US spec) so do make sure to ask for what you want and see if they offer it. I had the European spec sheet and chose many things from there I would never have known about from the UK dealer sheet.

It's compulsory to comment on durability, but that's a tough one since I just got this, but it feels durable. Nothing fell off yet, and all my other chairs have arrived with "teething problems"
