Power Wheelchairs


A Power Wheelchair for Every Lifestyle

Explore the world on your terms with a power wheelchair. With options ranging from lightweight and portable to heavy-duty and rugged, there is a power wheelchair to fit anyone’s lifestyle.

What is a Power Wheelchair?

A power wheelchair, also known as an electric wheelchair or motorized wheelchair, is a mobility device that is powered by batteries and electric motors to provide mobility assistance to individuals with limited mobility or physical disabilities. A power wheelchair enables the user to navigate both the indoors and outdoors without the need for manual propulsion. A power wheelchair typically has a joystick or other control interface that controls speed and direction.

Elevated Power Wheelchair

Pride MobilityⓇ products, offered by Compass Mobility, also include the elevated power chair. If you desire a raised position for face-to-face social engagement or for reaching capabilities, this model might be the right fit for you. Elevating 10 inches in just 16 seconds, users can drive up to 3.5 mph while the seat is in a raised position.

Power Wheelchair Options

Your choice of power wheelchair should be based on your unique mobility requirements and personal preferences. Standard power wheelchairs are typically designed for indoor and outdoor use and provide a good balance of maneuverability and stability. Other options may include heavy-duty chairs for higher weight requirements or lightweight travel power wheelchairs, which are designed for easy transport. You will also find options in the drive configuration, from rear to mid to front-wheel drive. Additionally, the control interface, seating and positioning, and other features will vary among models.
