Welcome to our review of the Cobalt Travel Power Wheelchair. If you are interested in Cobalt Travel Power Wheelchair, we have some valuable information below about this product that you should know about. We feel that the EZ Lite Cruiser is the best choice for an electric wheelchair because they are light weight, compact, easy to use and very affordable when compared to the Drive Medical Cirrus Plus and its offerings.
The manufacturer of the Cobalt Travel Power Wheelchair boasts that you can take it anywhere you want to go because of its simple dis-assembly feature. You just remove the seat, then pull up on the quick release lever located near the seat post, and the chair separates into two sections, so it makes it so that you can load it into your car or SUV without a lift. The Cobalt Travel Power Wheelchair weighs a total of 101 pounds (45.8 kilograms), that separates into the front section weighing 52 pounds (23.6 kilograms), batteries weighing 28 pounds (12.7 kilograms) and seat weighing 19 pounds (8.6 kilograms). The dimensions of the device are 38.5 inches x 24 inches x 37 inches (97.8 centimeters x 61 centimeters x 94 centimeters) and as noted, while it can not be folded, it can be disassembled into 3 smaller. After browsing many sites, we were unable to find the seat size. We are presuming it is between 18 inches (45.7 centimeter) to 22 inches (55.9 centimeter) based on the overall width of the device.
The Drive Medical Cobalt Travel power chair has a turning radius of 29 inches (73.7 centimeters) and can attain a top speed of about 4 miles per hour (6.4 kilometers per hour) with its Motors able to climb hills of up to 6 degrees. The Drive Medical Cobalt Travel can, well, travel for up to 7 miles (11 kilometers) of continuous use on a full battery charge. We were also pleasantly surprised to find its durable construction that can accommodate passengers weighing up to 250 pounds (113.4 kilograms.) The Drive Medical Cobalt Travel power wheelchair accomplishes most indoor mobility requirements. Some doorways and hallways may be tight to fit through because of its size and turn radius, but it handles simple outdoor mobility fairly well, such as paved sidewalks & flat surfaces.
The Drive Medical Cobalt Travel electric wheelchair may require a car lift. Most people, even with reasonable upper body strength, will not be able to lift it without support of a car lift. It can be disassembled into 3 pieces but still, the smallest/lightest piece may be difficult to lift and store for some folks. Even though it can not be folded, it can be stored in a car/SUV trunk when it is disassembled. If you have a Van, you should be able to store it fully upright and assembled. When you order a chair and it arrives, it comes disassembled, as suited for travel. About 15-20 minutes of assembly time is required, along with a toolkit.
