Alejandro Escamilla - UnsplashFor many of our customers at Mobility Scooters Direct, having an excellent affordable power wheelchair is not enough—the customers are also seeking to have a model that makes a superb first impression. With the experience that comes by being the best supplier of power chairs for multiple years, comes the understanding of which models pair best for accomplishing specific goals—in this case, making the best first impression. This article will provide you with several recommendations to best accomplish this particular goal.

Best First Impression Power Chairs

Travel Powered Wheelchairs are unique due to their compact size. These are recommended for travel; whether it is that you are taking an airplane flight or embarking on a road trip that crosses several states in America. The Heartway USA PUZZLE P15 Power Wheelchair is a model that has the traditional wheelchair look; however, the basic design is known to surprise people when they see how well this model moves while maintaining that traditional look and feel. The model has a maximum speed of 3.8 mph; a travel range of 13 miles; a weight capacity of 300 lbs.; a turning radius of 27.375”. In addition, this model can be personalized for a left or right-handed person without having to dish out extra funds. What makes this model excellent for travel is its light frame—weighing 84 lbs.—and the ability to disassemble the power chair into three pieces for simple storage.

Full-Size Power Wheelchairs are durable and are capable of handling higher weight capacities. The power chairs in this category are reliable and best for non-extreme travel conditions. These models are an excellent asset for day-to-day travel. A second model that I would recommend is the Heartway USA Maxx Power Wheelchair. The power chair has a simplistic, no-nonsense design. Don’t be surprised when you receive compliments on your increase status when meeting with work colleagues, friends or family. This model has a weight capacity of 350 lbs. It has a travel range of 18 miles while being capable of moving at a maximum speed of 6.25 mph. The model has a turning radius of 19.6”.

Heavy Duty Power Wheelchairs, while similar to the Full-Size Power Wheelchair models, are able to handle more wear and tear, plus greater weights. These models are designed to be able to travel off road, if necessary. In addition, these chairs can handle heavier weights. A recommended model from this category of a power chair is the BOSS 6 Series Power Wheelchair. This model has a weight capacity of 600 lbs. That means, when you have someplace to be, you can carry each and every item that you need to have to make an excellent impression, while still being able to travel from one place to another if you are overweight or suffer from obesity. This particular model has the option of coming in three stylish colors: Candy Apple Red, Ocean Blue or Midnight Black. You can further personalize the power chair by matching the upholstery with the power chair color by selecting black velvet, gray velvet or charcoal vinyl. This model has a maximum speed of 4.5 mph; a travel range of 20 miles; and a turning radius of 27”.

Merits Health P183 Heavy-Duty Folding Power WheelchairLastly, Folding Power Wheelchairs are the best models to bring along with you when traveling by vehicle. Due to their narrow designs, these are simple to store. These models usually have lower weight capacity; however, the recommendation provided is unique: it is both a heavy-duty power wheelchair and a folding power wheelchair. The Merits Health P183 Heavy-Duty Folding Power Wheelchair is capable of holding up to 700 lbs.! Regardless of your weight, you will never have to worry about sacrificing for efficiency by having to bring fewer items with you, regardless of the occasion. The client always knowns that you are prepared and professional.

For instance, Billy Ray—one of our prior customers—would complain that his previous power chair didn’t have the weight capacity needed. He is of a heavier weight and needed to also take his briefcase, plus miscellaneous objects, with him from time-to-time for various meetings. The higher weight capacity of this model ensured that Billy Ray was able to have each and every item that he needed to make an excellent first impression on potential and current clients, while still being narrow enough to enter and leave buildings that weren’t necessarily designed to accommodate handicapped individuals. Billy Ray loves the independence that his Merits Health P183 Heavy-Duty Folding Power Wheelchair gives him. The model has a travel range of 25 miles and a maximum speed of 4 mph. The turning radius is 37”. It runs on a 22NF – 12v 55ah battery.
