Electric Wheelchairs

Ergonomic Equipment & Supplies


Electric wheelchairs, also known as power wheelchairs, are mobility devices designed help if you have limited mobility in moving around independently. Unlike manual wheelchairs, which require physical effort to propel, electric wheelchairs are powered by electric motors typically powered by rechargeable batteries. Movement is usually controlled by various mechanisms such as joystick controllers, switches or touchpads, which enable you to navigate the wheelchair forward, backward, and turn in different directions. Battery life varies depending on factors such as the type of battery, user weight, terrain and usage patterns. more

Some electric wheelchairs are designed to handle various types of terrain, including indoor surfaces, outdoor pavements, and rougher terrains like gravel or grass and while electric wheelchairs are generally heavier and bulkier than manual wheelchairs due to the battery and motor components, many models are designed with portability in mind and feature foldable frames or detachable components to facilitate transportation in vehicles. They often come equipped with safety features such as anti-tip wheels, automatic braking systems, and stability controls to prevent accidents and ensure user safety.

Which battery type is right for you needs a careful review Lead-Acid Batteries are generally the most common Relatively inexpensive they provide sufficient power for most wheelchair applications, however they tend to be heavier and bulkier compared to other battery types. They also have a limited lifespan and may require regular maintenance. Gel batteries are another type of sealed lead-acid battery that uses silica gel as the electrolyte. They offer maintenance-free operation and enhanced safety and are often preferred for applications where vibration resistance is important. Lithium batteries are becoming increasingly popular in electric wheelchairs due to their high energy density, lightweight design and longer lifespan They offer faster charging times and higher power output making them perfect if you need longer range and more frequent use of your wheelchairs. They are typically more expensive than lead-acid batteries..
