Frequently asked questions about powerchairs
A power wheelchair is a mobility device equipped with electric motors that allow individuals with limited mobility to move around without manual propulsion. It is suitable for people who have difficulty or are unable to operate a manual wheelchair due to physical limitations. Power wheelchairs offer independent mobility and come in various configurations to accommodate different needs, from indoor use to outdoor terrain navigation.
When selecting a power wheelchair, important features to consider include the type of drive (rear-wheel, front-wheel, mid-wheel), battery life, weight capacity, seating options, manoeuvrability and control mechanisms.
Transporting a power wheelchair depends on the model and design. Many modern power wheelchairs offer portability features. Some models can be taken apart into smaller components that fit in the boot of a car, while others can be folded for easier storage or transport.
However, it's important to note that power wheelchairs are generally heavier and bulkier than manual wheelchairs, which can affect their transportability. When considering a power wheelchair, evaluate its portability features and consult the manufacturer's guidelines to ensure it meets your transportation needs.
