    Converting Wheelchair

    My wife loves her wheelchair and has asked me if I could convert it to electric and yet controlled by herself instead of me .Any one know if this is possible as the only power conversions I have seen are operated by the carer.

    Here's a link I found

    They all seem rather expensive. I've seen some powered wheelchairs that have two batteries but you can pull them apart and put them in the hatchback.

    Check this out - you can buy on the Motability scheme..
