Reliable, trouble free, performance...

Just about anyone can bolt a motor onto a wheelchair frame and make it affordable. The challenge lies in making something that's much more.

Begin with a frame that's strong enough for years of reliable, trouble-free operation. Yet light enough to simply fold, store and transport.

Nice start. But there's more. Make it programmable. And make it handle, respond like an expensive power chair...powerful and smooth...performance you can depend on... and you really have something. Ok...Now make it affordable. And you've got the Metro Power. More performance than you ever thought possible from a power chair in its price class. And more value than you ever thought could be available in a Medicare K0012 wheelchair. But then, Value through Innovation is what Everest & Jennings is all about.

Metro Power Transportability
Transportability
Metro Power is easy to use, easy to handle, easy to fold and transport. Just remove the two battery boxes, front riggings, arms and joystick and the Metro folds into a compact 14" unit that weighs less than 50 lbs. and can be easily rolled into a car trunk or storage area.
Lightweight, High-Strength, tubular steel frame
(A) Integral one-piece sideframes; (B) gusseted reinforced caster sockets and (C) backposts, (D) welded-on (as opposed to bolted) motor mounting brackets.
