Disability Scooters vs Electric Wheelchairs

 

Mobility scooters and wheelchairs can greatly improve your quality of life and increase daily independence, but with so many options out there how do you even begin to choose? Here at Crest Care we’ve helped many individuals and care homes find the ideal products, with disability scooters and electric wheelchairs being firm favourites among many of our clients.

 

Electric Wheelchairs

 

Also known as powered wheelchairs, electric wheelchairs are ideal if you do not have the ability, stamina or strength to use a manual wheelchair - or if you want a wheelchair capable of going longer distances. They run from a battery and electric motor and can be driven at the touch of a button or, controlled by the mouth in cases where bodily movement is restricted. We have many different options for our customers in and around Crawley to choose from too, with a number of electric indoor and outdoor variations available.

 

Main benefits of electric wheelchairs:

 

  • Maximises independence
  • Smaller turning radius than mobility scooters
  • Allows you to travel for long distances
  • Variety of seating options including riser chairs
  • Helps you conserve energy
  • Folds up and disassembles easily

 

Mobility Scooters

 

Modern mobility and disability scooters are a great way to improve your quality of life when mobility is usually limited. Travelling to places becomes much easier and many scooters are compact enough to use indoors and on public transport, increasing your independence greatly. They are an excellent long-term investment and come in a wide variety of models to suit the different needs of Crawley customers. The three main models are compact/portable scooters, mid-range mobility scooters and heavy-duty road legal (Class 3) scooters.

 

Key advantages of disability scooters:

 

  • Increased independence
  • Prevents falls and injury
  • Freedom to travel further
  • Ability to customise
  • Good speed (4-8 mph)
  • Adjustable swivel seats

 

Why Riser Chairs?

 

When you find it hard to sit and stand up, a recliner/riser chair can help you increase your comfort and independence at home. These incredibly versatile motorised chairs recline and lift you up at the touch of a button. Not only do they help you get out of your chair much more easily, but are also beneficial for a wide variety of medical conditions. For example, if you suffer with water retention in your legs the lift function will raise your legs up to help reduce swelling. Riser chairs are available in various styles and fabrics to choose from.

 

At Crest Care, we also specialise in a variety of walking aids to help you move around the home and out and about with more ease. Our selection includes walking sticks, walking frames, tri-walkers and rollators.
