Product Description

Tailwind Power Assist Wheelchair

Just One Switch

That is all you need. Just push Tailwind's single, conveniently located on/off switch and you're running. No remote and no configuration. It's that easy. User Controlled Boost. A simple switch gives you the boost you desire. Simply index Tailwind's sensitivity button to control each side. Adjustable for different conditions or adapting to the chair.

Reliable Power For Your Day

Our new updated Battery pack has 50% more capacity; more than enough to get you through the day. Tailwind's user visible Fuel Gauge has a 12 segment LED readout to tell you exactly how much Battery life remains. Just charge your Battery overnight and you will be ready to roll in the morning.

Custom Made, Just For You

Tailwind frames are made-to-order. You work with your therapist to find the right size and we will build an ultra-lightweight rigid frame specifically for you. From width and depth to options like camber or front frame angle, almost any dimension can be configured to fit your body.

No Programming Required

The software knows your needs. It takes an uphill and makes it feel like a flat surface, and it allows you to safely navigate downhill. What once was impossible now feels like a common stroll through the park with Tailwind. Fits even in a compact car. With an overall weight of only 56 pounds, Tailwind can be easily broken down with quick release wheels, easy battery removal, and a fold down backrest. Only a little over 30 pounds must be lifted into the vehicle at one time.

  1. Very Smart and Long Lasting but Not Versatile 4 out of 5

    Posted by mike on Mar 10th 2018

    I blew out my shoulders pushing a manual for six years. The iGlide ( the predecessor ) was a significant liberator for me.

    The good: The unit is SO SMART. You'll be literally carried away when you push these rims, so go gently. Its unique selling point is a central brain that ensures you exert the same effort regardless of terrain. This means you push uphill and downhill, left and right push the same on slanted sidewalks. Assistance level can be programmed on the fly. It is durable and long lasting.

    The bad: Say goodbye to gliding downhill or zipping across hardwood floors. You give up some freedom for the amazing compensation this chair offers around town.

    The ugly: This chair is an all-in-one unit. No swapping out manual wheels. And adding a lockdown for your van? Better look it up.

    I loved my iGlide and so excited Canyon River brought it back. If you need a lot of help from a power assist and the ability to have folks disassemble and throw your chair into the car this chair will do. It really is a consistently smart chair. Less finicky than my e-motions but also not adaptable.
