Lightweight power wheelchairs and how to get the right power wheelchair is a video about how technology has impacted the wheelchair industry.
In recent years - electric power wheelchairs have resulted in vastly improving the quality of life for people who have certain mobility limitations.
For one, even though foldable electric wheelchairs are in the smallest power wheelchair classification, a barely visible power wheelchair motor can adequately transport wheelchair users weighing up to 265 lbs at an average speed of 5 miles per hour. In the fast wheelchairs category, they can go as high as 10 miles per hour compared to the traditional "manual" wheelchair.
As life changing as the power wheelchair has become - many can weigh 300lbs or more. Many also require various levels of disassembly when it comes to wanting to travel - creating a need for a folding, power wheelchair that makes travel easy.
So a new power wheelchair design now allows for today's foldable, travel wheelchair to weigh 50lbs or less. The key feature of these light weight, portable wheelchairs is how compact they become when quickly folded without compromising comfort and maneuverability when in regular use.
This particular video however, focuses on a new power wheelchair that is ultra lightweight as well as how and where to decide amongst comparisons. The link below will take you directly to where more information can be obtained regarding this power chair.
Just as is the case for adults, power wheelchairs for kids are dependent on the mobility limitations of the child. If the child's mobility restricting condition is significantly arduous, an appropriate Doctor, Physical and or Occupational Therapist should be consulted for an assessment.
A customizable, pediatric power wheelchair is a common prescription for severities such as multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy or cerebral palsy as opposed to your standard power wheelchair for sale.
As a wheelchair user who utilizes a compact wheelchair or a foldable wheelchair - you may not be aware of all of the many resources that can assist you with your daily challenges.
These suggested resources benefit all users of a power chair or wheelchair style. Services range from assistance with employment opportunities to physical activity promotion like learning new wheelchair skills to perform cool wheelchair tricks.
