Having an electric foldable wheelchair is one of the best ways to get around and we’re going to discuss the benefits of having an electric foldable wheelchair and why they might be the best choice for you.

1/ Increased levels of independence

Many wheelchair users can often feel like a burden and want their own independence to be able to go wherever they want, whenever they want. The pressure and restraints that come with a non-powered wheelchair can feel restricting but with an electric foldable wheelchair and powered wheelchairs in general, you will have an increased feeling of independence that you don’t have to rely on anyone to assist you.

You will find that with an electric foldable wheelchair that you can complete tasks that bring your fulfilment and enjoyment such as visiting friends and family alone with the need of help from a carer.

2/ Boosted mood and happiness

With increased independence, you will feel happier that you can complete tasks and activities that you would never be able to do without an electric foldable wheelchair. A boost in your mood will make you feel like you can achieve anything and be a benefit to those around you who will feel your positivity.

3/ Saves space

As the name suggests, electric foldable wheelchairs can be stowed away easily. This means that they are the perfect options for individuals and families who struggle with limited space.
