Serious globetrotter “I love the freedom this chair has given back to me. I've flown to Vancouver, travelled across Canada on the rocky mountaineer, up the Athabasca glacier and to the Calgary stampede. Visited Reykjavik – having the FrontWheel made dealing with the snow, ice and slush a breeze. I've also been to the Isles of Scilly and London, to name but a few. Later this year I'm off to Tenerife and have trips planned to NYC, Maldives and Australia.This chair has given me so much more confidence and freedom when it comes to traveling. I would have never contemplated going up to London on my own in my old chair, but these days it's just another journey". - Michael Tynan
"I am in planes all the time... and not knowing whether my wheelchair will be at the aircraft door on arrival, it has been the bane of my life. The FX took all the pressure and stress out of my travels" - Sir Philip Craven
