As we age, our mobility naturally begins to decline and it becomes a little harder to get around. Many seniors may even have some health issues such as mini-strokes, dementia, or a variety of other disabilities that prevent them from being able to walk at all. Luckily, with the aid of a power wheelchair or mobility scooter seniors are able move around relatively freely and easily again. However, there is an extremely wide variety of Powered Wheelchair and mobility scooters on the market with features equipped for just about any situation, so it can be hard to decide which one will work best for you or your loved one.
Read on for a brief overview of both the power wheelchair and the mobility scooter, their advantages and disadvantages, and how you can figure out which one will be best for the user’s unique living space, lifestyle, and budget.

Power Wheelchairs:
Power wheelchairs are the perfect choice for easily maneuvering indoors. A Power Wheel Chair plugs in for an overnight recharge, feature four or six wheels for stability and safety, and are adjustable for your riding comfort. Ability Center features quality brands of electric wheelchairs from Invacare, Kirshall and Permobil with styles, sizes, options, and wheelchair accessories to create a mobility device to meet your mobility and lifestyle needs.

Because we also sell a full range of wheelchair vans and handicap accessible vehicles with lifts, we are able to insure compatibility between your mobility equipment and accessible van conversion every time! Ask your Mobility Consultant for training and demonstration on properly securing your wheelchair.

A power wheelchair is much more than the standard fold-away wheelchairs you’re used to seeing at hospitals and airports. It’s a technologically advanced, sophisticated piece of machinery with a variety of functions to make life easier. They usually have anywhere from 4 to 6 wheels, which make them highly maneuverable, as well as a joystick that controls their movement. A power wheelchair can go anywhere from 10-20 miles off a single charge, and usually has a variety of seat movement options so users can recline, sit upright, lean forward, or assume a variety of other positions.

There are several advantages to choosing a Powered Wheelchairs. They tend to be more compact than a mobility scooter and have a smaller turning radius, making them better for tight indoor areas like elevators, bathrooms, and narrow hallways. Power wheelchairs also have highly adaptable seating options, including different pressure redistributing cushions and backrests, foot rests, and controls that can adjust the wheelchair to just about any position, so that users with posture issues can feel more comfortable for a longer period of time.

Those who are planning to use the chair in an accessible van may find power wheelchairs easier to secure, which means they provide a safer ride for seniors on the go. Finally, the fact that they are controlled by a joystick means that users who have lost dexterity in their hands, are paralyzed, or suffer from other disabilities that may make manually controlling a wheelchair more difficult can take full control of their equipment. The joystick can even be programmed to controllers triggered by mouth, eye, and foot movements, and more. Of course, nothing is without disadvantages and power wheelchairs come with a few of their own. They are incredibly heavy, which makes them impossible to lift by yourself and difficult to move with certain lifts and trailers that cannot support their weight. Most don’t fold into a smaller size either, so they won’t fit in standard cars. Power wheelchairs are also quite price with costs starting around Rs.102900 and reaching over Rs.350000 which is why they are seen as more of a long-term solution for seniors who have irreversible loss of mobility. Finally, many have a low ground clearance, making them unsuitable for uneven terrain or steep ramps.

Manual Wheelchairs:
Compact and tightly folding designs make it possible for your manual wheelchair to fit into tiny car trunks and even overhead bins on airplanes, while providing a rigid frame performance creating stability and better handling. Adjustable wheelchairs and folding wheelchairs are especially suited to active users, including athletes. 

If your child is still growing, save the cost of buying a new manual wheelchair as they grow, and purchase a Growth Kit that provides a new wheelchair frame which includes upholstery and footrest, at an affordable price. It's a real life saver. Many insurance companies are willing to pay for this wheelchair growth kit. Our special customization capabilities provide a molded fit for your seat which allows all day comfort.

Stand-Up Wheelchairs:
Get the comfort and handling of a high performance Power Chair that stands up. With the press of a button, you can change the seat angle and be in an upright standing position, easily and comfortably. A stand-up whe

elchair is a great elevator for wheelchair users up to 265 pounds body weight, whose muscles will not support them enough to stand up. Standing wheel chairs often work best for disabled individuals whose finger and arm control is sufficient at least one side, as often is with paraplegia, quadriplegia, muscular dystrophy, or cerebral palsy. 

These motorized vertical wheelchairs offer virtually infinite standing positions, and help improve your health through increased circulation. There is no jerking motion while raising or lowering this Stand Up Wheelchair, which reduces stress on sensitive body parts. The quite motor will not draw attention in a classroom or a conference room. Think of all of the 
Benefits: not needing a separate standing frame, space saving, less dependence on caregiver, goes with you when you travel, and best of all can stand in the wheelchair as often and as short/long as you decide.

Mobility Scooters:
A mobility scooter is probably the most affordable and popular way for seniors with mobility issues to get around quickly and easily. Intended for both indoor and outdoor use, they can reach over 10 miles per single charge. They also tend to have an aesthetic appeal that makes them more attractive to seniors who aren’t quite ready to commit to being in a power wheelchair all the time, and come in a variety of styles and colors.
There are many different types of mobility scooters on the market, including 2-wheel, 3-wheel, and other compact designs, that allow the user to  conquer almost any type of terrain or space. Most mobility scooters also come with a basket, making it easy to transport personal belongings such as a purse or some items from the grocery store. If the user plans on doing a lot of outdoor traveling, they will appreciate the fact that many mobility scooters come equipped with lights, turn signals, and other safety features.

However, much like power wheelchairs, mobility scooters also have their disadvantages. Firstly, they are not as safe to tie down in a van, meaning they’re not the best option if the user is planning on traveling long distances while seated in the chair. Also, they are not as easy to maneuver for seniors who have issues using their arms and hands as they are usually steered with a set of handlebars. Mobility scooters have a rather large turn radius, so they’re not as maneuverable in tight spaces. Finally, their seats do not have the wide range of seat movements and comfort adjustments that power wheelchair seats do, so they may not be as comfortable to sit in for prolonged periods of time.
