Electric Wheelchairs

The modern invention of electric wheelchairs (also known as power wheelchairs) has made many people's lives better. An electric wheelchair can help seniors feel more independent and allow them to enjoy the same pleasures and tasks that they used to give up. An electric wheelchair can reduce the physical strain on wheelchair users and caregivers who are used to a manual wheelchair.

Seniors who use an electric wheelchair often hesitate to purchase one despite the many benefits. They may be intimidated by the variety of models and brands available. They may be intimidated by the high price tags and wonder how they can afford to buy the product.

How we chose the best electric wheelchairs

There are some terms you will see on many dealer websites when you search for an electric wheelchair. Below are some of the most important terms to help you make your shopping easier.

Front-, Mid-, and Rear-Wheel Drive

Although electric wheelchairs can have up to six wheels, only two of them receive power from the motor. Other wheels (or casters) stabilize the chair. The wheelchair's mid-wheel drive is best for turning in tight spaces. Rear- and front-wheel-drive wheelchairs are best for handling uneven terrain and smoother rides. To determine the best wheel drive for you, consult an occupational therapist.

Turning Radius

The electric wheelchair's turning radius is the distance between the wheels of the chair and the ground. A smaller turning radius means that the chair is more suitable for indoor use in small spaces. Common turning radiuses range from 20 to 35 inches. The turning radius of bulky chairs is usually large, but other factors such as the angle of the footrest or the wheel drive can also impact the radius.

The Travel Range

The electric wheelchair's range, also known as "range", is how far it can travel before the batteries have to be recharged. There are many options for range. Some chairs can travel 4 to 5 miles, while others can go up to 20 miles. If the passenger is heavy or the terrain isn't smooth, the range may be less than advertised. For those who travel frequently or take their electric wheelchairs out for short trips, it is important to have an electric wheelchair that has a good range.

Warranty Limits

The warranty on electric wheelchairs is usually "limited", meaning that not all wear and tear will be covered. Most warranties cover the structural components of the chair, such as the frame. However, they may cover other parts for shorter periods. The number next to the word "limited" (e.g., "5-year limited")indicates that the warranty covers the most coverage, usually the frame.
