Lightweight portable powerchairs are built with lighter frames and slightly smaller wheel bases, which makes them ideal for those looking for an easily transported, convenient to store electric wheelchair.
These powerchairs are a terrific independence-boosting option if you need more accessibility than that offered by mobility scooters, but you donít have the upper body strength to operate a self-propelled manual wheelchair. Powerchairs look and function almost exactly the same as a manual wheelchair, but with a battery-powered motor that means you donít need an attendant to push. Practical and versatile, the powerchairs in this category are better suited to indoor travel. So, if you need a mobility aid for getting around your own home or you want your own electric wheelchair in supermarkets or on busy high streets, these models are ideal. Many of these electric wheelchairs can be taken apart into 4 or 5 light and easily managed sections, which makes them easy to store and transport. With tool-free assembly they take just a few minutes to put back together, so thereís never any delay when you want to get out and about. Some lightweight powerchairs, like the Foldalite range, fold up into one lightweight, compact, complete package, with absolutely no disassembly required for storage and transportation.
