The Travel Buggy Dash Ultra-Lite stands out as a superior choice for those seeking a top-tier mobility solution.

The 5-speed control and extendable joystick offer a tailored riding experience, accommodating users of different sizes and preferences.

With a generous 2-year warranty on motors and a 1-year warranty on the battery, users can rest assured about the quality and durability of their investment.

In contrast, the Vive Health MOB1029L, while being a more budget-friendly option, falls short in several areas. It's heavier and larger, making it less convenient to transport and store. The lack of speed control and an extendable joystick limits customization to the user's preferences. The shorter warranty period also raises concerns about its long-term reliability. Additionally, the absence of color options restricts users from personalizing their wheelchair. Overall, the MOB1029L seems to offer a basic, no-frills experience, lacking the enhanced comfort and personalization features of the Dash Ultra-Lite.

Customer Testimonials

Kind of Cool!

We are back from Cape Breton and the travel buggy performed well. I used the buggy through Toronto airport and right up to the plane door.

Barbara N.

The chair has allowed me freedom and independence

I wanted the chair to give me mobility to go shopping, using the chair from my car, and taking the chair with me when flying. The chair meets all of these requirements and has allowed me freedom and independence.

The Travel Buggy is incredible!

I have the City model and it’s AWESOME!! It truly is as lightweight, easily-compactible, and versatile as the website says! I’ve taken it all over Edmonton, and even took it onto hiking trails (some paved, some not) in Jasper!

Rosie T.

It was local and amazingly affordable

For long excursions such as the Edmonton Comic Expo, a regular wheelchair just couldn’t cut it with having to wheel myself or having someone else wheel me around. Just didn’t seem right.

Lee W.

Thanks again for your help!

I couldn’t get to class independently on a regular basis; I had to rely on friends to push me through the snow. This chair has helped a lot. Having the Travel Buggy means I can be a lot more independent, and takes away some of the stress of planning out my days to figure out who can help get me to class!
