Rear-wheel drive motorized wheelchairs offer many benefits to users. Rear-wheel drive electric wheelchairs are equipped with two large drive wheels on the back of the base, and two casters on the front of the wheelchair base. The placement of the drive wheels is the source of the electric wheelchair’s power. This extra power is ideal for more aggressive outdoor terrain. Plus, rear-wheel drive has more power to propel the wheelchair forward in softer terrain. A rear-wheel power wheelchair handles grade changes more easily to provide a smoother ride. Typically, rear-wheel drive electric wheelchairs are equipped with independent suspension or shock absorbers on all wheel to ensure a more comfortable ride experience.
The drive wheels on the mid-wheel drive are literally in the middle of the power wheelchair. The user’s centre of gravity is almost even with the centre of the drive wheels. This design creates the tightest turning radius. Mid-wheel drive motorized wheelchairs can do a complete 360-degree turn. This manoeuvrability is extremely beneficial when using an electric wheelchair in the home, out shopping or socialising with friends and family.
Front-wheel drive is extremely beneficial for many reasons. One of the biggest advantages is there is more force distributed to each of the four tyres, because there are two fewer tyres in contact with the ground, unlike with over drive wheel configurations.
The greater force increases traction, enabling the front-wheel drive electric wheelchair to perform well when driving over soft terrain, grass or uneven gravel. In addition, the drive wheels are the first to encounter an obstacle. The large tyres “grab” an obstacle like a curb or a step and go over it, pulling the rest of the chair with them.
Power tilt allows you to change your seat angle orientation in relation to the ground while mainting a back angle and legrest angle. This means that you can change your seated position without chaging your hip angle or knee angle. This position is beneficial for relieving pressure and helping with posture to hold your trunk upright and prevention from falling forward. It is a position that can help with stability when driving down a gradient or ramp or over rough surfaces/terrain. Powerchairs allow up to 50 degrees of tilt.
Power Recline allows you to change the backrest angle. It is like a “recliner” chair where just the back angle changes. Recline offers the following advantages, it changes the position of the body, provides pressure relief as the body is in contact with more of the seat/back surface, can improve respiration by opening the trunk/chest to help lungs expand, it can also help with digestion. This position can cause sliding whereby the body moves forward at the pelvis and out of position from the seating system and postural supports. This can cause a loss off sitting balance, or affect driving if the control is attached to the wheelchair frame.
Power leg Rests
Power Elevating Legs allow the user to change the leg and/or footrest angle relative to the seat in order to flex or extend the knee. Powered leg rests articulate, that is, lengthen while extending the knee which can help maintain an improved leg position. This can be recommended for pain, lower extremity swelling/edema (especially when used with power tilt and recline). powered legs rests can move legs together or individually.
