Where can you use powerchairs from Karma Mobility?
Powerchairs are highly versatile. They can be used on all sorts of terrain. Here are just a few of the places that you can consider using powerchairs from Karma Mobility:
- In your home – many people need to use powerchairs even when they are at home. If this is you, we can offer you mid-wheel drive chairs that have a much smaller turning circle than their front and rear-wheel counterparts. They can turn through 360° within the footprint of the wheelchair. If you are using a powerchair at home, you may wish to consider adapting your space. This might mean ramps to enter and exit the house and wider door frames. Sometimes you can get funding for such adaptations, so it’s worth looking online to see if this is an option for you;
- Trips to town – powerchairs can help you to pop into town or to local shops so you can do your shopping without help and without using public transport. They allow you to travel longer distances than most people can easily go in a manual wheelchair. You need to make sure that the battery is fully charged before you set out on a long journey. Your local stockist of Karma Mobility powerchairs should be able to give you an idea of how much distance you can get out of a fully charged battery;
- Tricky terrain – this is one of the areas where the powerchair comes into its own. Powerchairs allow users to traverse terrain that would be beyond the capacity of lightweight wheelchairs. This includes some kerbs, slopes and uneven ground. You can ask your supplier about the tyres on your powerchair if you intend to use it in this way. You can get types that help you to get out and about to all the places you want to go.
