Do You Think That A Motorized Wheel Chair Scooter Your Thing?

Jun 2, 2008
If you are at a point in your life that you need to choose what type of wheelchair you will be using there are a few things you will need to take into consideration. You will have a wide choice of wheelchairs to choose from and even a motorized wheel chair scooter is an option.

A few things to consider

A few questions come to mind when we need to think about what type of wheelchair we are going to choose. One of the first things you will have to do is to see if the strength that you still have. Is your upper body strong enough to move about in a manual wheel chair or would it be better to go for a motorized chair.

Maybe it's not something you should decide by yourself and have a talk with your doctor and/or physical therapist so they can giver their advice concerning the right type of wheel chair. Other things that the professionals will probably think about are how the brakes on the different types of chairs will work and how they are placed. They will also think about how much assistance you may need every day and how this affects the type of chair you choose.

A wheelchair, both the manual and motorized versions, will have more then one type of seat and cushion, not only so the person sitting in it is comfortable but also to prevent sores from developing because you are constantly sitting down. You should always make sure that the seat works for you.

In contrast to the the motorized version a manual wheelchairs can often be made very light, and weigh as little as twelve pounds. And this makes them very maneuverable and a lot easier to transport. On the other hand this makes that they are not so durable and should be something you take in to consideration.

What has a motorized wheel chair to offer.

They come with three or four wheels and the seat often is higher then a manual wheel chair. A lot of motorized wheelchair scooters have a basket in the front so you can carry some items in an easy way. They can't, however, be places in a van in such a way that you can drive it.

Another big plus of this type of wheel chair is that most can carry person of two hundred fifty pounds, there are even a few models that can go as high as five hundred pounds and you can imagine that these are heavy duty and very durable.

If you choose this type of chair you can be certain it will help you in your daily live. Some models can even be taken apart so they can be transported in an easy way. You can also get a special van lift that will help with loading an unloading of the heavy wheelchair scooter.

Figuring out which type of wheel chair to choose is something that you should do in your own time and very carefully. Take some of the models for a test drive and talk with some other people about their experiences with some of the types.
