Wheelchairs allow people to move independently within their home and around their community without the need to rely on carers or family members all the time. Powerchairs in particular have several seating options that enhance a user’s comfort and let them feel comfortable throughout the day.
Karma Mobility powerchairs come in different shapes and styles and have the ability to recline, tilt and elevate. Some of our models, such as the Ergo Stand, can lift the user from sitting to standing with the help of a simple button. Navigation is achieved through a joystick, allowing the individual to move freely and shift between various dynamic poses throughout the day.
Karma Mobility powerchairs are ideal for many people, including the elderly, those in need of rehabilitation from accidents, or people who suffer from atrophic or other progressive diseases. Here are some of their major benefits compared to regular wheelchairs.
Less pain and fatigue
Karma Mobility electric wheelchairs are ergonomic, meaning that they are designed by taking into consideration the human body. Sitting in the same position for a long period of time can cause muscle atrophy and jaw pain as well as pain caused by the pressure on the joints. Badly designed wheelchairs can increase pain and discomfort, leading to long-term muscular problems. Electric wheelchairs are made with comfortable materials and come with different accessories that allow users to sit comfortably on them, while realigning their posture at the same time.
Managing orthopaedic problems
If you are looking for a powerchair due to orthopaedic problems or you are in rehabilitation from an accident that has affected the movement of your limbs, it is really important to use a wheelchair that will help you achieve an optimal seating arrangement. A powerchair designed to fit your individual needs will also prevent injury to your shoulders and reduce pressure on your limbs.
Improve your relationship with your caregivers
Last but not least, powerchairs provide you more independence to move around and this can improve your relationships with your caregivers.
These are just some of the many advantages of purchasing a high-end powerchair with ergonomic function.
