In addition to their fleet of electric Twizys, the Eco Travel Network is now hiring ‘Boswell’ – a Boma 7 All Terrain Electric Wheelchair. The Boma enables people with limited mobility to join family and friends in enjoying walks in the Brecon Beacons National Park.The Boma 7 is easy and comfortable to use whether climbing steep slopes, fording streams or traversing rough or muddy ground. Everyone who’s ridden Boswell so far comes back grinning from ear to ear – especially when it’s given them a chance to enjoy a walk with their family that they couldn’t manage before.
Here is a short tutorial on how to operate a Boma 7 wheelchair.
As well as catering for gentle strolls, Boswell has also taken part in more challenging ventures – scaling Pen-y-fan and also completing a Gold DofE expedition with a group of 6th formers.
