Electric wheelchairs, sometimes known as power chairs or motorised wheelchairs, are wheelchairs that are propelled by an electric motor rather than manual power. They come in a wide range of varieties and styles, and the electric wheelchair price will depend on the list of inclusions and features.

Is an electric wheelchair right for me?

Electric wheelchairs are used people who aren’t able to propel a manual wheelchair with their arms. They are also used by people who need to cover long distances, move over terrain which would be exhausting in a manual chair or have a cardiovascular and fatigue-based conditions that limits physical exertion.

Where can I use my electric wheelchair?

Electric wheelchairs are designed for indoor, outdoor, or all-surface use. Paired with the potential to control movement from a strategically located, ergonomic joystick, motorised wheelchairs are the perfect solution when you need a safe and reliable wheelchair to help you get around.

Indoor Wheelchairs

Indoor electric wheelchairs are narrow and short, to help manoeuvre around tight environments. The controls are usually simple, and due to the smaller design the chair is not typically ideal for outdoor use. They come with smooth carpet tyres to look after the flooring in homes and workplaces.

Outdoor Wheelchairs

Outdoor electric wheelchairs have a considerable range, a large wheelbase to help with stability, and large tyres to improve comfort and handling. These can be driven indoors in adapted environments, but not around a typical home. Some are designed with cross-country mobility in mind.

All-Surface Wheelchairs

Like it’s indoor counterpart, all-surface motorised wheelchairs are small in design, but come with better batteries, grippy tyres and can also include a curb-climber for navigating street pavements. These electric wheelchairs are intended for indoor and footpath use only.

What is the approximate electric wheelchair price?

Finding the right electric wheelchair will depend on a variety of personal factors, and the final price will depend on the technical specifications and other inclusions. For an approximate range when it comes to electric wheelchair prices, they can be anywhere between $3000 to $30,000.
