Standard manual wheelchairs are the most frequently used wheelchairs. Standard wheelchairs weigh over 35 pounds, without the front riggings. They have a seat width and depth between 16 and 20 inches, and have fixed or detachable armrests. Almost all standard wheelchairs can support up to 250 pounds. Standard wheelchairs are good for those who have temporary mobility issues, or need to transport their wheelchairs easily. They fold in, small and narrow, and can easily fit in any car.
We also carry electric, power wheelchairs. With weight capacities of up to 500 lbs, power wheelchairs are strong enough to accommodate almost any user. Our selection of power wheelchairs is vast. We carry from heavy duty to light power wheelchairs, so you can select which one fits you best. When compared with lighter power chairs, heavy duty models tend to feature larger motors, longer frames, and increased torque. While a lighter power chair may be difficult to maneuver through rougher landscapes, a heavy duty power wheelchair is designed to tackle even the most challenging terrain.
At Americare, we have an excellent selection of heavy duty power wheelchairs for sale. We also have an extensive wheelchair accessories section, where you’ll find plenty of customization options to help ensure that your chair is a perfect fit.
If you know you’ll be using your motorized wheelchair outdoors, there are several features you’ll want to look for. Large motors and tires, and extended battery life become more important when traveling out of doors with your chair. Conversely, a tight turning radius and compact size become less important. We at Americare carry what we believe to be the best outdoor wheelchairs in any inventory. If you’re the type that needs a constant fix of fresh air; you’ve in the right place.
Americare Medical Supply has a wheelchair selection that is vast and high-quality. No matter which wheelchair you pick, you will be happy with your choice. We ensure comfort and mobility!
