The Jazzy Select 6 has mid-wheel drive, allowing it to turn on the spot – combined with its narrow width, this makes it a much more manoeuvrable wheelchair than traditional rear-wheel-drive models. In-line motor technology gives the Jazzy Select 6 decent efficiencies, torque and range, making it well-suited to use outdoors, although it can occasionally struggle with steeper ramps. Active-Trac Suspension helps to smooth the ride over bumpy pavements.
The distinctive captain’s style seat allows the wheelchair user to enjoy the comfort of their favourite armchair when out and about, and the backrest can be reclined through a simple lever. The seating is suitable for those without advanced requirements and features limited adjustability beyond the position of the footplate. A simple to use controller makes the wheelchair easy to use, even for those unfamiliar with driving one before. Sleek red or blue bodywork gives the Jazzy Select 6 an attractive appearance, and part of its popularity is that it doesn’t look like a traditional 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 travelling around. Our power wheelchairs require a seating assessment so that we can make sure your seat is perfectly comfortable and safe for your use.
