Power chair ins and outs, which one is right for you?
Power chairs are wheelchairs that are electronically controlled. Useful
for individuals who are having problems moving around and about. Most
of the power chairs available in the market are used indoors or
outdoors and even a combination of both. They come in rear or center
wheel drive that makes moving easier. Moreover, they come in a lot of
features that you can consider to perfectly match your needs.
First bunch of features in looking for a power chair includes travel.
There are few types of portable power chairs that folds up easily for
easy transport. They work well if your often travel and wishes to bring
your power chair with you. They can easily fit the back of your car and
can also be taken to flights. The only drawback to them is that they
don't offer a lot of comfort features, so it;s not ideal if you don't
plan to put your chair in your car that often.
You can find the perfect power chair whatever your needs are. There are
many different features designed to make your life more comfortable.
First, you can find a wheelchair that allows you to have an elevated
leg rest or even a power-elevating seat. You can also choose a seat
that is perfect for you. Many are available with a "captain seat"
similar to those found in automobiles. These seats often offer
semi-reclining backs and even headrests. You should also consider how
wide the seat should be.
On top of car travel and comfort, the capability of the power chair to
go off road is vital. A lot of power wheelchairs have the capability to
go outdoors, on rough terrain in addition to paved surfaces. While they
will not withstand "real" rough roads scenarios, they will be able to
withstand dirt paths, rocky surfaces and uneven roads without a hitch.
A lot of wheelchairs can get speeds up to 7 mph and can go as far as 15
miles on a single battery charge. These features allow the user to go
out and experience the outdoors. Even a visit around the neighborhood
is not a problem these chairs.
Despite of the many useful features the power chair can offer, there
are still a few things to consider. First is that most wheelchairs have
a maximum weight capacity. It is crucial that you choose a chair that
will be able to support your weight whatever that might be. Giving it
at least 50 pounds more is a good idea in weighing so that you'll
always have some extra pounds buffer. It can get harder if you weigh
about 280 pounds as most chairs have a 300-pound maximum support
capacity. But don't despair, there are still some chairs that go beyond
that point to support even heavier weights.
On a final note, you should make sure that you choose a power chair
that has all the features you need. Looking for an indoor chair that
might be used outdoors later is not a good idea. So forecast all your
need before looking for that chair. By doing so, you'll be able to get
all the features you need and have the maximum value for your money.Have
