Mobility Scooter vs. Power Chair
Which Is Best?
Power Chairs (also known as electric wheelchairs or power wheelchairs) 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. They 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 indoor spaces. They are available in a wide range of models, from small, portable travel scooters to all-terrain luxury models. 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 a difficult distance with family and friends.
