Power Chairs (also known as mobility chairs) are motorized chairs that run on long-lasting, electric batteries. The user controls the direction and speed of travel with a joystick on the chair’s armrest.
Mobility chairs offer exceptional maneuverability making them useful inside homes, shops, and restaurants where you may encounter narrow halls, sharp corners, or want to pull close to tables, desks, or counters. Power chairs are primarily prescribed by physicians for users who require full-time mobility assistance.
Mobility scooters are predominantly used outdoors since their design and length often precludes them from being used in tight spaces. They are available in a wide range of models, from small, portable travel scooters to all-terrain luxury models and bariatric scooters.
Mobility Scooters offer part-time or occasional convenience. They allow their users to more easily enjoy visits to shops, parks, and social events that would otherwise require walking an otherwise difficult distance with family and friends.
