The Pride I-Go+ directly responds to this need and has been redesigned from the ground up to easily tackle your everyday outdoor pavement scenarios while feeling more stable. Featuring front suspension, an upgraded padded seat and backrest, convenient under-seat storage, and ample foot room, the Pride iGO+ still retains its predecessor’s compact and lightweight design that can fold in just a few simple steps for effortless transport.
All high-stress components, including the motors, have also been completely replaced with more durable counterparts, and the wheel size has also been increased to help further smooth out the bumps you might encounter. At the same time, out and about while an upgraded 18 amp lithium battery ensures you have the same reliable range as a heavy-duty boot scooter. The only sacrifice for these multitudes of improvements has been a slight increase in the overall lifting weight – 24kg up from the origin.
What are the benefits of buying an electric wheelchair?
Because there are so many options when it comes to purchasing electric wheelchairs, you can benefit in a number of ways. Although some power wheelchairs will come at a higher price point than manual wheelchairs, they can offer many more useful features.
More freedom and accessibility
Powered wheelchairs allow users to get around without having to exert energy, which means that it is possible to get out for longer and a much further distance. The batteries on a power wheelchair can last for around 8 hours before needing a charge again, so those with limited mobility can easily transport for shopping, fresh air, and just about anything else! For those that require a wheelchair but can also walk short distances, an electric wheelchair allows the user to get out with less effort and therefore have more energy to walk when necessary. A powered wheelchair can allow much more outdoor freedom and accessibility.
Because a power wheelchair hosts a motor and battery, the models are usually slightly larger in size than ordinary wheelchairs. This means that there is more room for comfort, including bigger cushions, support and stability. The chair can easily be customised for an individual so that they are provided with optimum support while traveling around. Our power wheelchairs require a seating assessment so that we can make sure your seat is perfectly comfortable and safe for your use.
