Benefits of a powerchair

Powerchairs offer a comfortable way for those with limited mobility to remain independent. They offer more functionality than standard electric wheelchairs and are customisable each individual users needs. Electrically powered, they ease physical strain whilst allowing easy navigation through varying terrains.

What is a Front-Wheel-Drive Powerchair?

A Front-Wheel-Drive Powerchair is when the drive wheels are positioned towards the front of the wheelchair powerbase, along with two castor wheels at the rear of the wheelchair.

Unlike Mid-Wheel-Drive Powerchairs, which have two drive wheels positioned in the centre of the power base, along with four castor wheels - two at the front, and two at the rear.

Front-Wheel-Drive Powerchairs usually offer enhanced stability, increased accessibility, and optimised comfort. However, Mid-Wheel-Drive wheelchairs offer a more intuitive drive and a smaller turning circle.

Our Front-Wheel-Drive models are ideal for both indoor and outdoor use with a focus on quality, reliability and functionality. We also offer alternative drive controls for individuals who are unable to use the traditional joystick.

Professional demonstrations

We offer free, no obligation professional demonstrations and assessments at your home, place of work, hospital or school. No need to travel to a clinic, as we conduct an environmental suitability assessment as part of our procedure - this ensures that the product you're interested in is able to be used exactly where you want to go, helping you find the wheelchair that fits your needs.
