Exploring the Benefits of the Powerchair

Pride Go Chair Powerchair

Are you experiencing limited mobility or are struggling to move around? A powerchair may be the ideal solution. Also known as an electric wheelchair or motorised wheelchair, a powerchair is a mobility device powered by an electric engine designed to assist people who are struggling with mobility allowing them to perform daily tasks, engage in social activities and move around with ease.

Powerchairs can be used by people who may have difficulty walking or who have limited use of their upper body due to conditions like paralysis, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, or injuries. Powerchairs are a testament to innovation and design excellence and are engineered for maximum comfort and manoeuvrability.  What is great about powerchairs is that they open a huge number of possibilities for those with mobility challenges. 

Here at ISB Mobility we supply a range of powerchairs and are proud leaders in the home mobility market since 1999. We pride ourselves on our excellent products and services at affordable prices. Within this post we learn more about why powerchairs can really help people.

Battery Powered

Powerchairs have rechargeable batteries that store electrical energy, which is great as it is so easy to keep these charged so you can always be ready to use them on your next journey. The range they cover and how long the battery is charged for varies depending on the model of the chair. A great overall benefit that only helps people with mobility issues. 

Safety First

Oue range of powerchairs come with some excellent built in safety features. Powerchairs are designed to be stable and well-balanced to prevent tipping. Anti-tip wheels or casters at the rear of the chair help maintain stability on uneven terrain. Most of the powerchairs we have come with seat belts securing the user during their journey, preventing falls or injuries.

Joystick Control

A joystick to move and ‘drive’ your powerchair is another great feature of these chairs and a benefit in terms of ease of use. Push it in different directions, and your chair will happily follow your lead. 

Customised Seating Options

What is great about our fleet of powerchairs is that they come with a range of seating options from customisable seat cushions, backrests that make sitting in the seat so comfortable and even headrests. Comfort is key here and ease of use; and these chairs have both.

Speed Control

Adjustable speed settings allow users to choose a comfortable and safe speed for their mobility needs. In general, when indoors slower speeds are preferred and when outdoors; faster speeds are widely used.

Powerchairs means increased and prolonged independence; allowing you to maintain your way of life and move at ease; both internally and outdoors. These powerchairs are designed for stability as well as safety and are equipped with safety features such as seat belts and a customised seating experience. Powerchairs can help regain control of your mobility and way of life; thus, improving your way of life and ability to participate in daily activities; without relying on assistance.
