Frequently asked questions about electric powered wheelchairs
Electric wheelchairs are battery-powered wheelchairs for those who are either unable to propel themselves or need help propelling themselves and getting around. They can help someone either continue enjoying their favourite activities or regain their freedom. It may allow them to get around the home more easily or go out to the local shops and lead a more independent lifestyle.
Electric wheelchairs use an electric motor to propel the user. They typically consist of a sturdy frame with wheels, a seat and backrest, and controls that allow you to operate the device. Electric wheelchairs are powered by a battery, which is charged using an external charging unit. The battery provides power to the electric motor, allowing the chair to operate for a certain number of hours before needing to be recharged. A joystick or other control device is used to move the chair in the desired direction. Some electric wheelchairs have features such as power-assist wheels or hand rims that allow the user to manually propel the chair, too.
There are several benefits to using an electric wheelchair:
Most electric wheelchairs are not designed to be used in wet or rainy conditions and can be damaged if they get wet. Water can seep into the electrical components of the chair and cause damage, which can be expensive to repair.
However, some electric wheelchairs are designed to be more water-resistant. These chairs may have sealed batteries, waterproof motors and other features that help protect the electrical components from water damage. It's important to follow the manufacturer's guidelines and use caution when using an electric wheelchair in wet conditions. If you need to use your electric wheelchair in wet weather, you should consider purchasing a model that is specifically designed for wet conditions or that has additional water-resistant features.
It's important to make sure you purchase the right-sized wheelchair for your needs. Please double-check the product specifications to make sure it's right for you and refer to our wheelchair sizing guide.
