Hit the trails of Oak Openings Preserve Metropark and set out on an adventure with the freedom of an all-terrain power wheelchair. This chair easily rolls over rocks, roots, sand, mud, and snow, allowing users to explore almost any trail. The chair can be rented for personal use at Oak Openings Preserve, Oak Openings Lodge free of charge.
For safety reasons, users are required to bring a companion. Also, if assistance is needed to transfer to the track chair, the companion must be able to assist with the transfer. Park staff and/or volunteers are unable to assist with transfers.
The Track Chair has a seat width of 22 inches and no maximum weight restrictions. Features include: Comfort Tek back, seat base, and armrest, 4 point harness, 9" seatbelt extension, armrest pockets, attendant control, flip up footrest to help with transfers, head rest, lateral leg supports, lateral side supports, oxygen tank holder, and transfer handle and backpack hook.
Rental is free thanks to a Reeve Foundation Grant. The Track Chair is available year-round and can be used for a maximum of three hours at a time. Rentals are out of the Oak Openings Lodge, where many different trails can be accessed.
