Electric Wheelchairs

Electric wheelchairs offer the user independence to get out and move around without the need for assistance. If you should be affected from upper body incapacity or have reduced strength then this sort of chair may assist.

Current electric wheelchairs are reliable, effortless to make use of, and have the ability to be equipped with options, which can include such items as kerb climbers.

Types of Electric Wheelchairs

Electric wheelchairs can be classified in distinct variations – portable, rear drive, mid drive and outoor (larger generally also mid drive), they are also often referred to as being indoor/outdoor, indoor etc. We have chosen to use the drive type to classify and our "Electric Wheelchair Guide"will expand upon this. Whilst rear drive models are more conventional, Mid drive electric wheelchairs with 6 wheels on the ground, offer the best handling options of all, particularly in small spaces.

Regardless of the model, many different electric wheelchairs include optional features such as, powered seat raise, power recline, and power tilt.. These features give you a variety of postural changes and support and can help with the management of pressure issues.

Electric wheelchairs run on rechargeable batteries and the majority run on 12-volt Gel batteries. Maximum range of travel can be as much as 25 miles dependent upon various factors. Users of electric wheelchairs generally regulate the speed and direction of the chair via a programmable joystick mounted on the armrest. Other models offer different input devices, particularly if the users simply can't use hands or fingers. For instance, users who are unable to operate a manual joystick may choose from a headswitch or chin operated joystick.

Users with spinal cord or head injuries have the option of a 'sip and puff' system which offers independent management of their chairs by blowing into uniquely designed tubes positioned near their mouths, which manage the functions and movements of their chairs.

With the appropriate attention, all users can take advantage a lifetime of stress-free mobility.
