  1. Hello from Victoria, BC, Canada.
    I’m a wheelchair user, (primarily a PowerChair-Quickie ‘Experience’), & have been using both manual & powered chairs for 21 years. I was working, (once was a Pro Ski-Patroller & Paramedic), so my equipment is funded by the W.C.B.-they have been very supportive of me replacing my 21 year-old Quickie GPV Titanium manual chair.
    I’m looking forward to trying this Voyager Evo, which I have a question about. Do you recommend a certain type of power-assist-wheel(s)? Do you offer your own propulsion-assist system? I’m a C-6 Quad without tricep use, I’m nearly 43, & pushing myself is a huge GOAL of mine, but I’ll need some help from something like the ‘Alber’ power-hub wheels.
    Can you please provide me with the information I need, or a link to it?
    Brent Frew
