Plan On A Folding Electric Wheelchair

Although many first-time wheelchair buyers are quick to decide upon an electric wheelchair, many don’t consider whether to check if they’ve bought a folding wheelchair or not until they’re in a situation where they would’ve needed it. Normal wheelchairs require a lot of effort from the user to operate, so an electric wheelchair is a clear upgrade. Sadly, not all electric wheelchairs are foldable, and this reduces your ability to travel, see others, and increases your independence from others. However, if you know what you’re looking for, and how to use it, a folding electric wheelchair can be a great benefit to its user.  

Benefits of Folding Wheelchairs

Like a normal electric wheelchair, a foldable electric wheelchair helps its user to travel independently, travel farther, and keep up their energy throughout the day. However, what makes it so different from the former is the fact that it may be folded up for storage. This means that it can be placed in the trunk of a car, in a plane, or that others can carry it to you easily. They’re comparatively lightweight when measured against other electric, non-folding wheelchairs, and ultimately helps a user to travel without worrying about dismantling the chair. Since a user is able to travel easier, this helps them stay in contact with loved ones and helps a user stay independent.   

The freedom of mobility is also beneficial towards a user’s mental health. The freedom to go and do what you want, whenever you want to is something that’s lost on many users. Through the use of a folding electric wheelchair, you’ll feel the difference it makes throughout your day-to-day tasks, and the difference it makes in helping you live out your life to the fullest. 


Are There Any Drawbacks To Foldable Electric Wheelchairs?

One disadvantage of a foldable power wheelchair is the fact that it’s larger than the standard wheelchair. A user still needs to find ways to adapt to using it in a vehicle, or around the house. However, as mentioned above, since these models of electric wheelchairs can fold, this increases the opportunities for travel and increases mobility opportunities.
