Yeah, I know
Up there with the type you get in supermarkets. Wildly uncomfortable and a nightmare to self propel. Very heavy if you are moving yourself. Though if you need a cheap one for temporary use for say an older child or a slight built person of any age it would work. You'd at least want a cushion though. (Am a wheelchair user myself)

Don't forget VAT relief for the disabled.




Don't forget to factor in the cost of upgrades.

My wife has been using this exact model for 2 years now, no problems with comfort and has done everything she has wanted of it, we did look into an aluminium one to save weight but at only about 2 - 3 kg lighter she decided to stick with what she knows works. When we got ours from Lloyd's 2 years ago they were only £59.99 back then, at these prices she has well had her money's worth and it is still going strong.

Do you know why it has been called universal credit? The idea is that in a few years every person will receive around £600 per month whether you are working or not, then it will be up to each individual to decide if they want to work and for how many hours they need to, the idea being is that as automation and robots reduce the number of job rolls people can still get buy on less hours and job opportunities. bbc.com/fut…ome

Interesting read.

However, I assume that this would be funded by increased income tax for those that do choose to work, making work even less appealing... So, less people decide that it's worth working, so the tax goes up further to subsidise this, until eventually, the income from tax can't meet the 'guaranteed' income.

Also, if working people earn more, are we not in danger of inflation rising, which could make the 'guaranteed income' insufficient.

Interested to hear thoughts, but in danger of ruining the post

I just think it is wrong when you have a lot of the population doing 5 or 6 days work a week and millions staying at home on benefits, I think this idea could mean the population could share jobs so that the average person is only working around 3 days a week as people could cut back to part time and at the same time allow others to work the other days. That way your take home pay is still roughly the same this helping control inflation. I guess what is holding back this idea though is the fact it could bring many out of poverty and risk driving inflation, but then are we saying we need to leave millions of people in poverty for fear of inflation, Is this another reason behind benefit cuts? We have allowed millions of people into the country so we now control inflation by hitting the poorest people in the UK.

It does sound good in an ideal world, but I can't see how it can be funded.

Also, giving everybody a flat amount of money wouldn't drive them out of poverty - the poorest people will continue to be the poorest, prices would increase, and those individuals in the same boat they started in.

I feel that the system we have at the moment is the right kind of idea, just poorly executed. The absolute poorest and most in need should be given benefits, but there should never be a situation whereby a person earns more in benefits than they would whilst working. Whether the answer is to reduce certain benefits (e.g. jobseekers?) or continue to pay reduced benefits to people working lower paid jobs, I don't know.
This or the Infiniti Q Lease deal?
Apparently only 25% of people on benefits are actually entitled to them through genuine disability etc...and most of the other 75% are either too lazy through being grossly overweight or just plain lazy cheaters. Time a government did something about it .

Stop believing Tory rags and check the actual published statistics - much less than 1% is claimed fraudulently, despite the DWPs best efforts to make everyone think otherwise. A far higher figure is the amount of social security over-paid to people as a result of the DWPs own staff making mistakes.

The bulk of the "benefits bill" is pensions - not benefits at all.

As for the government doing something about it, thousands - literally thousands - have died as a result of "benefits", with some indication that it's over 120,000 dead.

People are literally starving to death because of benefit delays and the oh so pernicious "sanction" regime - for which DWP staff were able to claim *bonus payments for reaching targets*

Ministers claimed there were no targets but DWP staff were able to prove there really were - they had posters of something that looked like a Space Invaders game IIRC, you got points for killing (sorry, sanctioning) people.

The UK government is also the first in history to be accused of systematic abuse of the sick and disabled by the UN.

UN accuses UK of systematic abuse of the sick and disabled

Now look at recent statements by various MPs. Philip Hammond this week blamed the disabled for poor productivity figures. Others such as Jacob Rees Mogg and Philip Davies have openly said disabled people do not deserve the legal minimum wage.

Read posts by the Black Triangle Campaign and DPAC to discover the true horrors this conservative government has forced upon those least able to help themselves.

The "disability tests" by Atos, Capita and Maximus - who were recently found to have just 4 qualified doctors employed between them (!!!) had an official target "fail" rate of 80% irrespective of how sick our fellow humans aka "benefit scroungers" were.

Our government is guilty of the genocide of the sick and disabled. Please take the time to learn more, and tell everyone who will listen.

Like the idea of universal credit but can see many fakers using these / actually you can spot them coming into A&E and have to ask why a wheelchair for a sprain... Can see this being popular with this crowd nrshealthcare.co.uk/mob…tor which is actually a bargain for £42 would post it a deal but likely to be shot down


Anyway, I use to love wheelchair racing around the hospital, what I like about htis is that it is puncture proof / solid tyres and its aluminium so easy to lift up stairs/steps if needed - although do worry about pavements if the person using it is obese, lol


Good tip: Buy silicone grease and use lots of it around the bearings, makes it so much easier to self-propel/race with

Genocide is a bit far-fetched, you should visit Burma.

Them companies easily had/have more than 4 qualified doctors - its probably mis-read and it is 4 doctors at a particular centre but hundreads throughout the country.
I am so glad that they do have non-NHS doctors as otherwise GPs would be further blackmailed by their difficult patients whom are often on benefits and have multiple problems............ However its a horrible job as the majority of doctors who do such assessment only last a year or two; a. Due to burnout seeing so many people blatantly lie, one of the worst jobs as a doctor. b. Anguish at having to say real disabled people are not disabled as the companies try to force a maximum 20% disabled output from their doctors otherwise they are punished, c. run by Americans whom are all corporate and blairite with targets and the accents start to grind on them, lol
This is a wheelie good deal
Recently bought a wheelchair to take mum out the house. I opted for pneumatic and tbh I was surprised at the jarring I felt through the hand grips while moving her over quite small bumps, like through doorways. And the pressure wasn't high. I'd expect a solid tire ride to be unpleasant.

How many deaths does it take to qualify as genocide ? A few deaths are "unfortunate", thousands are policy? Daily Mail readers will run out of fingers and toes to count on.

The HCPs ("health care professionals") fake their "assessments", and their typically barely qualified opinion is taken over that of specialists. HCPs are often no more than nurses or physios, with no experience of conditions beyond a couple of hours in a classroom looking at slides, hardly adequate for varying conditions or something like chronic pain.

Personally use a Quickie Argon 2, which is really very light. Though you can get lighter than mine again, mines an active user one and I guess once you try those the standard ones feel very heavy, with a huge amount of play in the frame as you propel. Cutting down on weight in any way possible is beneficial if you are self propelling. Also worth a mention are the rubber rim covers, excellent on any chair to aid yourself to push. I adore my wheels, I could never go back. We had one of these chairs in ikea recently as we left mine at home and it was hard work. Def look at those rim covers though. More so if your wife can self propel.

G lite seems quite popular as a budget friendly option. I looked into getting one before I ended up with my argon. Alot of people with the same condition I have (Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, we dislocate easily. Basically) so lighter chairs work better for us. Also try places like eBay and gumtree, I got my electric chair for £200 on ebay and a power assist chair on gumtree for £150. All three have their uses depending on what I'm doing that day. The g lite you are looking at about double the price of the one advertised here but it will be much lighter.
