Advantages of The Power Wheelchair

Some wheelchair users may prefer or need a power wheelchair. There are several advantages to owning a power wheelchair for those who need or want a little extra mobility assistance.

  • You can conserve your physical energy for other activities when you use a power wheelchair.
  • Going up hill is much easier and requires minimal exertion on your part with a power wheelchair.
  • Wheelchair users who decide to go with a power version will find carrying groceries and other items easier by having at least one free arm.
  • You don't require any mobility assistance with a power wheelchair that you might if you had a manual one. For instance, when you travel long distances or steep inclines, the power wheelchair handles the movement for you.
