When you are shopping for Electrical Wheel Chairs in Taunton or the surrounding areas, you need to be sure you are making the right choice and are getting a wheel chair that meets your needs. Here are some things to consider when shopping for an electric wheel chair:
Battery Life- make sure you know how long the battery should last when it is fully charged. If you are just using it for around the home and short distance a 4-5 hr. battery life may be enough but if you spend time outdoors and do a lot of shopping daily charging every 5-6 hrs. may not be convenient for you.
Weight Limits- ensure that you or whoever you are buying the chair for are within the weight limits specified for that particular wheel chair. Being too heavy and exceeding the limitations can cause the chair to wear out faster and can damage it and may even cause injury in the long run.
Transporting- if you do a lot of traveling or like to go out shopping at lot and will be putting your electric wheelchair in the car often, be sure it is easy to fold and lift and that it will fit easily. There’s no point in having a great chair if you cannot easily take it with you.
Warranty- be sure to check for any warranty offered with the chair. See what all is covered, how long the warranty lasts and what you will need to do to make a claim if something happens. You may not need a warranty, but it is something that is always worth at least looking into.
