Power wheelchairs are a large category of mobility equipment that includes many different types of devices. Not all power wheelchairs look, feel and handle the same way. As you are shopping around, look at these important characteristics to compare different models:
In addition to the above, power wheelchairs can also have special features, such as seat belts, storage pouches, wheel locks, headrests, etc. Some of them may be irrelevant for you or your loved one, but others may turn out to be a huge bonus. If you are not sure about the benefit of certain features or how they work, please come talk to our wheelchair experts at our Hanover, MD showroom.
Freedom Mobility’s selection of power wheelchairs includes:
Power wheelchairs, also known as motorized or electric wheelchairs, feature a motor that propels the wheelchair in the direction you need to go. This is very convenient, because instead of applying manual force, you can essentially move your wheelchair with a touch of your finger.
Just like cars, power wheelchairs can have different types of drive train. This is one of the major differences in how various power wheelchairs operate. The driving wheel is typically larger than the rest, so you can easily spot it. Here are the three major types of electric wheelchairs based on the drive train configuration:
The position of the driving wheels matters because it determines how a wheelchair handles, specifically in uphill and downhill situations. For example, rear-wheel drive wheelchairs have better traction going uphill, while front-wheel drive wheelchairs do better when going downhill. But you can’t feel or understand this difference unless you try a wheelchair out before you buy, which we’ll be happy to help you with in our Central Maryland wheelchair store.
