When our customers are shopping around for a wheelchair, they must decide if they want a manual wheelchair or a power wheelchair. Most individuals don’t know the difference between these two different types of wheelchairs. That is why we put together a few things about each to help our customers decide which one would be the perfect fit for them based on their specific needs. We want this decision to be an easy one for all.
Our manual wheelchairs are perfect for those individuals who have an issue with their balance, no use of lower extremities, and possess the proper strength to propel the wheelchair forward. Manual wheelchairs are very lightweight which makes them easy to transport when you are traveling. They also have extremely low maintenance costs, as well as an unlimited range of use due to their not requiring batteries.
Power wheelchairs are best for those customers who find themselves needing full-time mobility both indoors and outdoors. They are ideal for those who lack the strength to propel a manual wheelchair or the right amount of stability to sit in a manual wheelchair.
Our power wheelchairs are the perfect mobility aide. They are battery powered which makes them ideal for most individuals due to the convenience some find in this. They offer a vast amount of freedom and independence as opposed to some restrictions felt by other mobility equipment. You can operate them on a variety of different surfaces, and they are great for use in bedrooms, bathrooms, hallways, and elevators.
