Full size power wheelchairs come with much more comfortable seating options, and can support a much higher weight capacity just like heavy duty chairs. They are larger than a travel wheelchair but a bit smaller than heavy duty power wheelchairs.
Heavy Duty Power Wheelchairs
Heavy duty wheelchairs are most commonly used for their high user weight capacity. They are strong enough for any user. Heavy duty power wheelchairs, also known as bariatric wheelchairs, can also be used on almost any surface. These all terrain power wheelchairs are really the toughest available with their large motors and increased torque when compared to regular power chairs.
Elevating Power Wheelchairs
Elevating power wheelchairs are those that the seat can go up and down with ease. These motorized wheelchairs come with lifting technology to help with getting in and out of the chair much easier. It also helps for users to have a face to face conversation with someone.
