What Types of Power Wheelchairs Are There?

For the person wondering, ‘what types of power wheelchairs are there?’ you are not alone.

Power wheelchairs come in different shapes, sizes and specialties. There are four main categories of electric wheelchairs, which are:
>> Travel Power Wheelchairs;
>> Full Size Power Wheelchairs;
>> Heavy Duty Power Wheelchairs; and
>> Folding Power Wheelchairs.
These styles of electric wheelchairs are perfect for different types of people.

Travel power wheelchairs are lightweight. They are designed to provide durability and convenience.

Full-size power wheelchairs, otherwise called, “XL power wheelchairs,” are larger than average wheelchairs. The products have higher weight capacities and are generally more durable than smaller models.

Heavy duty power wheelchairs are extra strong products built to last. For the immobile, weight will not be a factor with these heavy duty electric wheelchairs.

Folding power wheelchairs are lightweight and easy to transport from one place to another, such as in a vehicle, even if the person is by themselves.
