“Our Mission and Vision” Using manual wheelchairs can cause certain users to either become very tired or dependent on other people to push them. We would like to give a sense of freedom and independence to all users. With our deep understanding and commitment to this line of business, we only supply top quality products that have unique features, at very reasonable prices. Too good to be true, right? But here we are! We strive to help all of our customers to feel the maximum freedom and independence possible. Changing the users lifestyle and mentality in a positive manner becomes our ultimate mission.
“How we started”
Wheelchair88.com started from my family story…..ever since my father became a stroke patient in the year 2000. I started to learn about the needs of stroke patients, handicaps of all ages and the elderly. In the past, I have purchased nearly 10 different types of wheelchairs, including the expensive one-arm drive and modern sports wheelchair. I soon realized I needed to find a wheelchair that was comfortable and manageable to ensure it was going to suit his needs and positively change his lifestyle. My father was feeling a loss of freedom and independence since the stroke, but now with our ultra-lightweight power wheelchair PW-999UL, his mind becomes more active while driving it daily, and it has made him much happier.
Over the years I have attended many related courses, exhibitions and conferences to understand more about wheelchair users, both physically and mentally. I have visited many factories and handicap facilities to learn about the pros and cons of different wheelchairs in different scenarios. In 2010, I started the business with a Japanese friend of mine who designs cars. He helped with the design to make the Foldawheel PW-999UL near perfect, and up to international standards. We tested the unit for more than 1.5 years before launching wheelchair88.com.
