The Air Hawk power wheelchair review that I have been promising for months!
I didn’t intend on taking so long to review my portable power wheelchair, but I am glad I did. Six months gave me ample time to really put this mobility aid to the test!
Short outings and all-day adventures! I have used it while shopping indoors, at Disneyland, and even on a beach vacation!
I have a better understanding of some amazing features, like easily converting it into an attendant-controlled electric wheelchair! Find out which accessories I loved and which had to be replaced in this episode of The Disabled Diva Talks Podcast.
As a reminder, this podcast is an informal chat with me, Cynthia, aka The Disabled Diva. It is unscripted and unedited. It is just me chatting with you about living with chronic illness.
Listen to my folding power wheelchair review.

Power Wheelchair Retailers
I purchased my Air Hawk power wheelchair from Discover My Mobility. Because I had some questions, my purchase was made over the phone rather than online. The only hiccup has been the backorder of the attendant control bracket.
A few options from Amazon

Thanks for this great review. I’ve just started considering whether or not I need a power chair for occasional outings, and am weighing the pros and cons. This podcast was a lot of help! It’s nice knowing there are lightweight folding chairs as well as the more heavy duty ones.
Very helpful review, Cynthia. My mom in law is basically stuck in her house because she can’t stand for more than 5 minutes. Boy, I sure would like to get her one of these. I’m not sure though that she’s open to it. Keeping it to share with my husband and possibly her when we visit then to this month.
Fingers crossed she opens up to the idea. It’s wonderful to not be stuck at home. With my current abdominal situation, I’d be homebound without it.
