Which is the right wheelchair, mobility scooter or accessory for you?
Manual wheelchairs are the most economical option, coming with a variety of features. If you need to be able to get around by yourself instead of being pushed, or if you can't afford the high price of motorised wheelchairs, a self-propel model is a necessity. There are also foldable wheelchairs with lighter frames, making them easier to transport and store. Most frames are silver in colour, but you can find other colour options available in our store to suit your preference.
Electric wheelchairs are easy to use, as the control dial (usually situated on the armrest) moves you and your chair as you direct it to. Electric wheelchairs come with a host of impressive features to consider before purchasing, including fully reclinable backs, foldability, and the ability to climb stairs.
Battery life is important to consider, especially if you are accustomed to ranging great distances over the course of the day. Remember to check out the battery specifications before you buy an electric wheelchair.
If you want to zoom through the streets, consider a wheelchair or mobility scooter with higher speed capabilities. Of course, high speeds should always be used cautiously.
Scooters can have either three or four wheels, and both varieties have different advantages. Three wheeled scooters are slighter framed and have a smaller turning circle, making them superior for indoor use. They also have more legroom, as your legs sit either side of the front wheel. Alternatively, Four wheeled scooters can withstand rougher terrain and are more evenly distributed in weight, making them better suited for the outdoors. If you spend a lot of time outside, consider a four wheeled option.
