Power Wheelchairs with the Longest Travel Range

Note: This blog post was written in 2016 and contains products that are discontinued, make sure to visit our website’s home page to see our most up-to-date selection of mobility products.

One of the most important characteristics of a power wheelchair is the ability to travel long distances without requiring an additional charge. In addition to an excellent travel range, the power wheelchair should be among the best in other specifications too. This can include maximum speed, weight capacity and turning radius. All of this combined makes the product one of the best investments on the market today—few things are more valuable than being able to do what you want when you want.

Bobby Joe, a past client of ours, was planning on going on vacation with his wife and kids in Disney World. With a busy work schedule, Bobby Joe often feels that he does not have enough time to spend with his family. Therefore, he was happily looking forward to devoting a weekend to spending time with his loved ones. The last thing Bobby Joe wanted when he traveled to Disney with his family was to be an anchor and interrupt the experience.

When Bobby Joe approached us prior to his family vacation, he had one specification – he wanted a power wheelchair that goes a long way on a single charge. It was important that he could explore the park without restraint. At most, the only acceptable time for him to charge his power wheelchair—according to him—was before entering the park at his hotel, during lunch while at the park, and back at his hotel after he returned from the park.  This was the only acceptable criteria for his potential powered wheelchair.

To best satisfy this request, we analyzed our inventory to find the best power wheelchairs for lengthy travel distance. The following recommendations, which were originally provided to Bobby Joe, can be utilized by anyone seeking to add simplicity into their lives:

  1. The Merits Health 710 Atlantis Power Wheelchair
  2. The BOSS 4.5 Power Wheelchair
  3. The Heartway USA Challenger CL Power Wheelchair
  4. The Heartway USA CEO Power Wheelchair

As of the publication of this article, these power chairs are among the best products on the market to travel lengthy distances. Each of these power wheelchairs is capable of handling extensive travel without having to pause to recharge the product.

The piece of mind that his power chair provided to Bobby Joe was well worth the price tag on his selection. He was able to roam the vast territory within the Disney World parks and focus on the experience with his wife and kids, such as how to make the day more fun rather than thinking about only him and the quagmire he could potentially be in if the battery were to become extinguished.
