With smaller wheel bases and lighter frames, powerchairs (or electric wheelchairs) can make getting around indoors much safer and a lot more comfortable. CareCo powerchairs are designed to look and function almost exactly like a regular wheelchair, but with the addition of a battery-powered motor that takes the strain out of self-propelling and means you donít need an attendant to push.
Powerchairs are designed to be practical, versatile multi-purpose mobility vehicles. Plenty of our models are more than capable of taking you outside safely and comfortably Ė especially those fitted with larger treaded tyres and padded captainís seats. Choosing a powerchair with a built-in suspension system will protect you from potholed pavements and rugged terrain, making sure you donít end up with aches and pains after a long journey. Electric wheelchairs are operated with a simple control panel. This can be fitted to either armrest to suit your specific needs, and features a joystick with operational buttons including a horn. Height adjustable seats and adjustable armrests and footplates also help you to make your powerchair as comfortable as possible. They are easy to manoeuvre thanks to their tight turning circles and stable wheel bases, and are a great option for navigating busy high streets and supermarkets. Like mobility scooters, powerchairs are built to be easy to store and transport. Classic models like the CareCo Easi Go can be dismantled into manageable sections, perfect for putting in the car boot for days out. Donít forget to take a look at our powerchair accessories range, too. From waterproof gear to storage backpacks and comfortable cushions, weíve got everything you need to make life with a powerchair as comfortable and convenient as possible.
