an electric wheenchair kit that can convert a regular wheelchair

to an electric wheelchair, SP Virginia Fx Team 1865 is created

at Fairfax, VA .

amazing how many trolls seeking publicity for government funding post shameless ads on ffu!

(note 1: factories make them. note 2: one hard worker could provide a flow of new wheelchairs for all of fairfax - without even fussing over fixing them since the flow would be more than sufficient)

A business cannot run on just meeting Fairfax County needs.

A business in order to stay in business must go wherever there is a need for their product.

Case in point is a family run business who makes an excellent wheelchair
that I am also exploring as a possibility.

But the cost of a "refurbished" electric wheel chair is about $1800--$4000

But among all the wheel chair providers, including the Chinese companies,
this American company in Florida has quality and "refurbished" wheel chair
for anyone who needs one.

But of course they don't have the "Virginia Fairfax Team 1865" kit, that obviously would be much less to create and fit an existing manual wheel chair.

Hello guys. I am really happy to live in the 21st century. Many people think that people are evil now and we just destroy our planet. It is partly the truth but there are many advantages. For example, now I can buy Firefly wheelchair attachment for a handcycle. Several decades ago it didn't exist.
