Clever detachable frame design, the DE08L separates into 2 sections

With the heaviest part, just 15.5kg. Yet it retains the classic sturdiness of Freedom Chairs, allowing active users up to 160 kilograms to drive on uneven surfaces such as gravel, grass and cobblestones.

High-Quality Build

Class-leading design and manufacture, folding power wheelchair with an up to 25 stone | 158kg maximum user weight.

Foldable & Separable

All FreedomChair models can be easily folded in just seconds. The DE08L has a clever frame design that separates into two manageable sections of no more than 15.5kg, including a battery. Storage space required inside an apartment or cruise ship cabin is minimal.


The heaviest part is just 15.5kg, including a battery!

More Power

Anti-tip Safety

Anti-tip wheels give reassuring stability

Latest Battery Tech

Up to 3 rechargeable lithium-ion batteries can be fitted, giving you x3 the power and range. Each battery ranges up to 9 miles, so 27 miles may be possible with three batteries depending on terrain and user weight. Adaptor cable included for off-board charging.

Highly Manoeuvrable

This powered chair will turn on its axis, making it easier to use than a mobility scooter in restricted areas such as retail spaces and lifts. Steering with the joystick is very intuitive and can be left or right-handed.

Electromagnetic Brakes

Electromagnetic brakes automatically hold you on a hill when the joystick is released. Motors can be set to freewheel mode allowing the chair to be manually pushed by an attendant.

Raisable Armrests

We’ve incorporated a handy flip-up function on both armrests for side transfers into and out of your seat. Also very useful for clearing the joystick when drawing up to tables.

Joystick With USB & An LED Light

FreedomChairs have a built-in USB charging port under the joystick so you can top up your smartphone on the move. Particularly handy when using battery-intensive navigation apps. Additionally, a bright LED light can be turned on to light your path ahead for your safety.

On-Board Storage

Handy under-seat bag for personal items. Plus, a helpful seat backrest storage compartment.

Travel Bag

Durable travel bag provided, free of charge. Protects your chair and the handles allow it to be rolled along in freewheel mode.


Attendant Control Kit

With an Attendant Control Kit, your FreedomChair can be steered by a Carer/Attendant walking behind the chair. The thumbstick allows steering in all directions, and the kit includes a pair of height-adjustable rear-facing handles for stable control. This kit helps to lengthen the usable life of a FreedomChair should the user become less able to control the chair from the main front joystick.


A fully adjustable headrest can be easily attached/removed from the chair.

Cup Holder

A quality, adjustable cup holder. Handy for holding a cup/bottle and keeping one hand free. Fits the armrest not used by the joystick.

Seat Widening Kits

If the chair you prefer is within your user weight limit but feels a little snug between the armrests, a seat widening kit can be easily fitted to give you that bit of extra space. Available in two sizes, the kits can add a total of 60mm (2.5″) or 100mm (4″) between the armrests.
