To make sure that nothing hampers your mobility at your holiday destination, here are a few points to bear in mind regarding transport and travel:
If you are taking the entire wheelchair with add-on drive with you on the journey in the luggage hold, all components should be packed as well as possible to protect them against impact or damage from other cargo. Control units and accessories such as a swivel arm should be removed and likewise safely packed.
If you are flying to warmer countries, bear in mind that when equipment is transported in an air-conditioned luggage hold condensation can form on it when it is unloaded, because of the big differences in temperature. You should therefore wait a short while before putting the equipment into operation, to allow any condensation to evaporate.
If the worst comes to the worst, our service centre is available to advise you and if at all possible supply replacement components even in your holiday country.
