Choosing the right powerchair is a very personal decision, since different people have different needs. However, when shopping for powerchairs you should always remember that while it is perfectly fine to look for a chair that covers your current needs, it is equally important to buy a powerchair that will adapt to your changing needs in the future.

For many years at Karma Mobility, we have been committed to providing high-quality and reliable powerchairs. You can choose from a wide range of models and mechanisms and we even offer electric wheelchairs that will help you stand on your own mechanically without the help of someone else. However, we advise potential buyers to work with their family, carers and physiotherapists in order to ensure that their new chair meets all of their mobility and comfort needs.

Ensure that your new powerchair is made of high-quality materials

Powerchairs are not all the same since different models are created for different needs. If it is possible, it is always a great idea to test a powerchair before committing to it, especially if you are worried that it is going to get stuck somewhere. The right powerchair will be an investment in your independence and improve your quality of life considerably. Karma Mobility powerchairs are made to the highest standards and will make you less reliant on assistance in the long run.

Go for robust and stable designs

Buying a good-quality powerchair can be expensive, but it should be seen as an investment. After all, it is a better strategy to pay a little extra for a robust powerchair, rather than having to repair your cheap powerchair every so often, or even replace it within a few years. All Karma Mobility powerchairs are engineered to be durable and last for many years, even with constant use. More importantly, we appreciate that your mobility needs may change, therefore adjustability is key and a major component of all of our electric wheelchairs.

Make it your own

Every person has different needs and different mobility issues, therefore customising your powerchair to meet these needs will enable you to achieve a better quality of life without relying so much on others.
