Folding Electric Wheelchair

Folding Electric Wheelchair
This category of chairs is for foldable, easy transport power electric wheelchairs; just fold it up and go! They are lightweight, which makes transporting simple. Although a little more costly than a traditional model, this style is definitely worth the extra buck if you are constantly on the move. It certainly takes a lot less time and effort to store in the trunk of your car.

1. Which wheelchair is the best for portability?
Models that disassemble or fold are the most portable. Note the size and weight when folded. Make sure you or your care giver can lift the heaviest part and that it fits in the vehicle you are going to use for transport. The Go Chair is one of the top models for portability.

2. Which wheelchair is best suited to travel by bus?
If it is a regular bus, make sure the width and turn radius of the chair will fit through the aisles and make the turns necessary to ingress and egress. Almost any model will fit on handicapped buses.

3. Are electric wheelchairs weather-proof?
No, these are electric vehicles with batteries. They may be used in wet conditions as long as the water is not allowed into the electronics or on the battery posts.

4. Does the wheelchair use battery power when not in use?
No, but this type of battery will drain over time even if the chair is not in operation. It is recommended you charge the batteries every 2 to 3 weeks if the unit is not being used. If it is used, charge the wheelchair until the charger reads full.

5. Is a power-wheelchair safe to use on inclines?
Yes, if the incline is not higher than the manufacturer incline rating. Most wheelchairs can be used on walking paths. Note that if the incline is too steep, it may be unsafe; use your best judgment.

6. Can I take my wheelchair to the beach?
To the beach, Yes; on the beach, Probably Not. Scooter Direct does not sell electric wheelchairs made to go into deep sand.

7. I am looking for a lightweight option, which model wheelchair is best?
That depends on you or your care givers ability to lift, fold or disassemble chairs. Scooter Direct sells electric wheelchairs with the heaviest part of less than 35 pounds such as the Merits Easy-Go.

8. Is the front, rear or center wheel drive model wheelchairs better?
None is better than the other depending on your need. Some of your decision is simply preference and the other is turning radius and the length and width of the chair. Center-wheel models typically have the tightest turning radius.

9. Where do I go for repairs?
Most of the wheelchairs sold by Scooter Direct include an in-home service warranty. We will facilitate getting your chair operational without you having to leave your home for the duration of the warranty offered.

10. How much weight can these electric wheelchairs support?
Most wheelchairs support 300 pounds but we have models that will support up to 600 pounds, such as the Merits P710.
