High quality electric wheelchairs in Prestbury help you to retain your independence. You can continue to be mobile, visit friends, go to work, do your shopping, run errands and travel. You will find many different types of wheelchairs, each designed for different needs and purposes. Some are intended for sports persons, others for seniors, paraplegics, veterans, heavy and bulky bodies, foldable, shower/commodes, and more. They may or may not have electric motors. Electric wheelchairs share several features with conventional ones. They can both be customised to fit your requirements, are available in several styles, sizes and configurations. However, the main difference is that with a manual wheelchair, you would need considerably more upper body strength to operate it.
Our chairs are sturdy and constructed from the highest quality materials. In Prestbury, electric wheelchairs are the right choice if you want a mobility solution that’s easier and swifter to operate. They are powered by a battery pack that can be recharged when required. There is a controller or joystick to manoeuvre the chair and to drive safely. Persons with heart conditions, or general weakness may find traditional wheelchairs difficult to operate. The wheels are larger and require much more effort to move. Check whether you can get it through the NHS’s wheelchair service. In case you do, you will have to choose one that lasts for at least five years before you can buy another.
Our range of electric wheelchairs in Prestbury can easily travel over uneven terrain and different surfaces both indoors and outdoors. Powered chairs are generally intended for longer spells of use. That is why they usually have better cushioning and support. They are also better at negotiating curves and inclines. If you drive or travel by public transport, we would recommend that you opt for a foldable product. You can book a store visit and try out the different options first hand, or opt for a home visit from one of our product advisors. Contact Helpful Hand for more information. Our showroom is disabled friendly, has free parking, wheelchair friendly and has purpose-built toilets for your convenience.
