Power Wheelchairs

Hoveround is America’s #1 power wheelchair company!

And it’s no wonder considering our patented, Round for a Reason® designed power chairs easily navigate tight corners and through narrow spaces, support up to 600 pounds and make enjoying your freedom and independence possible once again.

What is a Power Wheelchair? How is a Power Chair different than a scooter?
Power wheelchairs are battery-powered, motorized versions of standard manual wheelchairs. While mobility scooters can be a great option for outdoor usage, for those who require assistance indoors as well, a power chair is typically the only option.
Unlike a mobility scooter, which operates with a tiller and has bicycle-like steering, power wheelchairs are operated via a joystick located on the chair’s armrest. Users can easily navigate through tight spaces using only their fingertips. More advanced power wheelchairs are capable of being operated by the mouth or other body parts, which is important for someone who does not have full use of their hands or arms.
Power wheelchairs are also capable of operating on a variety of surfaces, offering exceptional maneuverability and allowing you to access more areas than you would with a scooter. You can turn in bedrooms, bathrooms, hallways and even in tight spaces like elevators. You also don’t have the frontal obstruction of a scooter’s tiller which allows you to pull up to work surfaces, countertops, sinks or the dining room table.
Power chairs are primarily prescribed by physicians for users who require full-time mobility assistance; whereas mobility scooters are usually purchased out-of-pocket by individuals who require only occasional, part-time or outdoor assistance. Many power chairs are Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance eligible if your physician determines one is necessary for you.* Our mobility experts are standing by and can help you to determine if you may qualify for a Hoveround for little or nothing out of pocket. Complete this questionnaire, or call 1-800-542-7236 to find out if you qualify.
*Insurance coverage depends on medical necessity as determined by insurer. Valid doctor’s prescription required.
Types of Power Wheelchairs
Power wheelchairs fall into two categories and are based on medical and physical requirements.  All Hoveround Power wheelchairs have our patented Round for a Reason® technology and enhanced maneuverability.  These categories can be distinguished by the Standard and Heavy Duty options listed below.

Standard power wheelchairs will meet the needs of most users and have a maximum weight capacity of 300 pounds. The MPV5 is the most popular and maneuverable model available due to its condensed frame and compact design. 

Heavy Duty
Heavy duty power wheelchairs are built to support a more robust body frame. Their maximum weight capacity HD6-SM-342x346.pngreaches up to 600 pounds. There are two chairs in the heavy duty category: Teknique XHD and Teknique HD6. Teknique XHD is equipped with a wider seat, tandem rear tires and a powerful motor, making it a comfortable and dependable chair. The Teknique HD6 chair provides an extra powerful motor and a custom-contoured seat to give the most support and comfort.      
Which power chair is best for me?
Selecting the right power chair depends on the user and his or her individual and medical needs. All Hoveround power chairs incorporate:
  • State of the art digital controllers for superior responsiveness and drivability characteristics.
  • Compact and Round for a Reason® design for the most spacious and comfortable chair with the smallest footprint possible.
  • Amazing maneuverability indoors or out.
  • Reliability you can trust.
  • Inner-spring seating for enhanced all day comfort.
  • Advanced seating and positioning options for unique or changing medical needs.
  • An assortment of accessories to make your renewed mobility more complete.

Hoveround offers four unique models that can each be customized to meet various medical needs, but from years of experience providing America’s Favorite Power Wheelchairs, we know the best Hoveround model is always the smallest. You want a power chair that fits correctly while remaining small enough to safely get you where you need to go.
The MPV5 has a compact and rounded design which enables easy navigation around tight corners and through narrow spaces. With its classic looks, easy maneuverability and 300 pound weight capacity, the MPV5 is our most popular Hoveround model.
Teknique HD6
Our largest and most powerful chair, the HD6 can support users up to 600 pounds. Its heavy-duty construction, lowered center of gravity and robust frame mean this model is best for more full-bodied users.

How is my Hoveround Delivery? Is there In-Home Training?*
Our Hoveround employees can personally deliver your power chair directly to your home. At delivery, we make final adjustments to your custom power chair for a perfect fit. A highly trained Mobility Specialist will provide expert training and make sure you can safely use your new Hoveround in and around your home. Best of all, there’s no obligation. If you aren’t 100% satisfied at delivery, we’ll take the chair back, no questions asked.
What happens if I need Service?
Service down the road is an important consideration when you rely on your power chair to live your life independently. One of the most important differences of owning a Hoveround is that we not only manufacture but also provide all our own service and support for our devices with highly trained mobility specialist. When shopping for a power mobility device, make sure you know how the provider you choose will take care of you after delivery. Be sure to review their service policies and capabilities before making your decision.
