What’s new? The Fold-Forward Backrest

While Magic Mobility users trust their powerchairs to take them anywhere, it’s important that they can also easily take their powerchairs with them too, whether it’s in the car or on a plane.

Our engineers have created the fold-forward backrest, a solution which reduces the height of your wheelchair, making it more compact to fit in more spaces like a small SUV or plane cargo hold.

The fold-forward functionality can greatly reduce the size of your wheelchair, particularly when combined with a removable backrest and seat cushion.

For the Frontier V4 and V6, the height comes down to around 620mm (24.5”) and approximately 650mm (25.5”) on the Extreme X8.

This can be particularly useful for travelling if your powerchair doesn’t have a docking pin, or in a car that doesn’t have a compatible docking station.
