VeloPlus with reinforced frame.
3. Can an electric wheelchair be transported on the VeloPlus?
An electric wheelchair is often too heavy or too wide to be transported on the VeloPlus. We therefore recommend that only manual wheelchairs be transported on the VeloPlus. This is because the VeloPlus is designed to accommodate a passenger including a wheelchair weighing up to a maximum of 140kg. The maximum width of the wheelchair is 72 cm. These specifications make manual wheelchairs more suitable for transport on the VeloPlus wheelchair bike. If an electric wheelchair meets these requirements, it can be transported on the VeloPlus. However, it is important to make sure that the weight is distributed correctly on the platform. This is because the centre of gravity of an electric wheelchair is often different from that of a manual wheelchair. As an option, the VeloPlus can be configured with an reinforced frame (passenger including wheelchair can weigh up to 200 kg). Are you unsure whether your electric wheelchair can be transported on the VeloPlus? Then please contact a Van Raam dealer in your area.
