Power Chairs or Power Wheelchairs

In difference to power mobility scooters, a power chair usually has six wheels and is steered using a "joystick." Often referred to as a power wheelchair, power chairs offer superior in-home maneuverability, fit almost anywhere and turn on a dime. A power chair is primarily designed for people who need help getting around indoors.

An electric power wheelchair, used generally for long-term use, is a sophisticated piece of equipment with a host of advanced features, which can greatly improve mobility.

An electric power chair offers the greatest range of seat movement options of any personal mobility conveyance. Most power chairs offer motorized stand, tilt, and recline functions which make them much more comfortable and suitable for long-term use. They also offer significantly more support for people who have posture or more severe mobility issues.

Powered wheelchairs can be heavy, this means they are durable and stabile, but it also makes them very difficult to transport around. Powered wheelchairs generally do not fold, which means they cannot be easily transported in a standard vehicle.  Their weight typically makes them too heavy for simple scooter lifts and trailers.

Electric power wheelchairs are the most expensive type of personal mobility vehicle; the models with advanced speed, power, and features rival or exceed automobiles for cost. Wheelchair prices can go up to around $15,000.
