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. Here at 247 Medical Equipment, our power wheelchairs require a seating assessment so that we can make sure your seat is perfectly comfortable and safe for your use.
