the slimmest tubed wheelchair

David Proud
Actor
“As an actor, writer and presenter each day is different for me. I’m on the road almost all the time in planes, trains and cars. I need a wheelchair that copes with hours of use but still looks as good as it does the day it came out of the factory. My MaxLite has taken some serious punishment from me filming in all kinds of conditions, even in the Alps. It meets every challenge I give it. A truly superb wheelchair for people who want to experience everything life has to offer.”
