Travel Power Wheelchairs

It's important to have a lightweight and portable wheelchair option for when you are on the road. Being in a wheelchair doesn't mean that you have to lose out on chances to travel and enjoy your life. Travel power wheelchairs typically weigh 100 pounds or less, are extremely compact for tight turning and can be easily broken down for portability. Because of their relatively short battery lives, travel wheelchairs are typically only used for short periods of time.

Full Size Power Wheelchairs

Full size power wheelchairs have longer battery lives than travel power wheelchairs and also typically have an increased weight capacity. Designed for everyday use, these wheelchairs are stable and durable enough to handle travel over uneven or rough terrain but also have the ability to maneuver at home and in other tight indoor spaces. These are truly the perfect everyday power wheelchairs.

One of the most common problems for people using wheelchairs is pain caused by poor posture. Sitting for long periods of time creates pressure on the lower back that can cause persistent pain. This can be alleviated by the use of power wheelchair backrest supports that create an "S"-shape to keep the upper body in proper alignment. By selecting the right choice from our selection of backrest supports, you can find a model that reduces or eliminates muscle pain and fatigue.
