Electric Wheelchairs (Power Chairs)
An electric wheelchair, also called a power wheelchair, motorized wheelchair, or powerchair, is a chair with an electronically powered base. It allows users to move around easily using a one-handed remote control. These chairs eliminate the discomfort and effort of manual wheelchairs. With an electric wheelchair, users can stay aware of their surroundings and move effortlessly with just one hand on the joystick. There are various types available.
Front Wheel Drive Electric Wheelchairs
Front Wheel Drive Electric wheelchairs have their drive wheel in the front, making them great for handling slight inclines and small obstacles. They distribute weight well for soft terrain like grass or gravel. They also excel at navigating doorways and offer comfortable foot positioning.
Mid-Wheel Drive Electric Wheelchairs
Mid-wheel drive electric wheelchairs place the main drive wheels in the center, allowing tight turns for narrow spaces indoors. They are highly stable with six wheels, suitable for indoor use.
Rear Wheel Drive Electric Wheelchairs
Rear Wheel Drive Electric Wheelchairs have large drive wheels at the back, ideal for outdoor use but may have difficulty with indoor maneuvering due to a wider turning radius.
Folding Electric Wheelchairs
Folding Electric Wheelchairs are designed for travel, featuring a compact base and smaller size for easy transportation. They are not meant for extended use but are perfect for travel purposes. They come in styles that fold into a single piece (around 50 lbs.) or disassemble into multiple pieces (heaviest piece around 30 lbs).
