Have you recently had a loss in mobility? If so, you’re probably looking into some mobility equipment, and may want to look into getting a power wheelchair, but how can you know which one is right for you? At Freedom Mobility, we’ve helped a lot of Marylanders choose the perfect power wheelchair to help them get around, and wanted to talk about how you can pick the right one.
Would You Like a Portable, Full-Size, or Heavy-Duty Power Wheelchair?
The first decision you’ll have to make when picking out a power wheelchair is the size of your chair. Portable chairs are smaller and easier to transport, but aren’t as sturdy or as powerful as full-size or heavy-duty wheelchairs. Eventually, some opt to pick up both a portable and a heavy-duty chair, so they have the perfect wheelchair for any situation.
Indoor or Outdoor?
Are you planning on using your chair mostly indoors or outdoors? Different power wheelchairs are constructed for indoor and outdoor use, and there are even some designed to traverse both in and outdoor settings. When picking out your next power wheelchair, be sure to discuss with a mobility expert how you plan on using it.
How Will the Chair Be Powered?
There are a variety of different methods of controlling a power wheelchair, because people have such a variety of disabilities. Your chair can be powered by your mouth, head, feet, chin, hand, or speech. Chairs can be customized to fit your needs, so no matter what your needs are, we have chairs that can help improve your mobility.
