Live Your Best Life Today With One Of Our Power Wheelchairs!
If your goals for the new year include increased mobility and independence for yourself or a loved one, now is the perfect time to shop for an electric wheelchair. The number of high-quality power wheelchairs on the market has skyrocketed over the past several years, driven by growing demand and the development of new technologies.
Why You Should Consider Purchasing a New Electric Wheelchair in 2019
There are many benefits to purchasing an electric wheelchair but topping the list includes:
Like mobility scooters, electric wheelchairs give you the ability to get around - and they also provide enhanced ease of use and comfort. Many options offer you flexibility in adjusting for height, tilt, reclining, leg space and other settings, thus keeping you comfortable for long stretches. And if you have upper-body mobility issues, you’ll be able to relax your arms and decrease exertion by controlling your electric wheelchair with a joystick.
b. Ability to maneuver tight spaces
Perfect for indoor use, electric wheelchairs offer you a tight turning radius (as little as 20 inches), which makes it easier for you to steer with precision. If you live in a small apartment, enjoy going out to crowded restaurants or often traverse narrow hallways, among other cramped spaces, an electric wheelchair is a great choice for you.
c. Relatively easy to take on public transportation
Boarding a bus, train and other kinds of public transportation in an electric wheelchair is often more convenient than a mobility scooter. And electric wheelchairs provide 4-point tie-downs for safe, reliable transportation in a moving vehicle, which offsets their reduced portability in other areas.
d. Often covered by insurance
If your doctor deems the equipment necessary for your physical needs, chances are your electric wheelchairs will be covered by insurance. Medicaid covers most electric wheelchairs at 80% with a 20% copay. Manual wheelchairs are covered in full.
The bottom line is that you deserve the freedom that comes along with an electric wheelchair whose design and functionality feel tailor-made for your needs, preferences, and lifestyle.
