THE EXPERTS IN CUSTOMISATION
Power Mobility specialises in the customisation of mobility equipment including power chairs, specialised seating plus much more.
When it comes to choosing a motorised wheelchair or power chair, one size doesn’t fit all. Power chairs are available in a range of options, from lightweight, portable chairs, mid-range models with standard convenience features to high-end, customisable models, altered to suit your individual needs. For all-day use, indoors and outdoors, a customised power chair is ideal.
Power chairs are essentially made up of two major components: the power base, which includes the motors, wheels, controller and batteries, and the seating system.
Selecting the Right Base
Power chairs can have up to six wheels and come in rear wheel, mid wheel, front wheel drive configurations. Understanding the pros and cons of the different drive configurations is key to ensuring you get the chair that will work best for you.
Selecting the Right Seat
Power chairs come with adjustable seats to suit a variety of different postures and sitting and reclining positions. Seats are highly customisable and may be fitted with:
- tilt and recline functions to reduce pressure
- elevating leg rests
- custom headrests, back rests and pressure care seat cushioning.
When choosing options and accessories for you seating, you will need to take into consideration your height and weight, and any existing medical conditions, such as pressure areas, etc.
Selecting the Right Controls & Accessories
Power chairs are most commonly operated by a programmable joystick, however, different control options are available, should you find a joystick difficult or not possible to use. There are many other accessories that can be customised and added to your power chair to help make your life easier. Ask one of our team members about all the options available.
