What type of mobility device is right for me?
Mobility Scooters are equipped with a handlebar/tiller feature that is used to drive the device. A tiller can be adjusted to each user but if you have limited arm strength or it would be uncomfortable to have your arms outstretched operating the scooter.

A Power Chair is operated with a joystick that is comfortably located at the end of the chair's arm. You operate a power chair by small movements of the joystick, side-to-side or front to back. If you have limited fine motor skills operating a power wheelchair may be challenging.
What is the difference between a travel and non-travel unit?
A travel scooter can be quickly disassembled into sections and is designed to be hand-loaded into a vehicle. That said, the weight of each section and one’s ability to handle and lift that weight, should be considered.

Full Size or non-travel units have many other benefits such as higher ground clearances, faster speeds and longer battery ranges just to name a few. However, a vehicle lift or ramp is required to transport these units.

One of the biggest pros of this type of motorized chair is the increased comfort it provides. The ability to elevate the seat means that users can position themselves in a way that alleviates pain and pressure on their back, hips, and legs. This can make a big difference for seniors who suffer from chronic pain or who have difficulty sitting for long periods of time. An elevating seat lift power wheelchair typically has wider seats than traditional power chairs, providing more support and stability.

What Are the Benefits of a Wheelchair with an Optional Power Elevating seat?

Electric wheelchairs with a raised seat provide people with limited mobility with increased independence and dignity.

The most appealing feature of a seat lift chair is its adjustability. You can set the backrest at any angle between 90 and 180 degrees, which gives you a lot of options for reclining. The adjustable seat can also be raised or lowered to accommodate different heights. This means that you can use the chair both as a regular armchair and as a wheelchair when necessary.

Another advantage of seat lift chairs is that they are very comfortable. They come with padded seats and backrests. Some chair models even have built-in heaters and massage functions. This makes these power wheelchairs ideal for people who suffer from chronic pain or who simply want to relax after a long day.

Finally, power wheelchairs with a seat lift are super easy to operate. Most models come with remote controls, so you can adjust the position of the chair without having to get up. This is ideal for people who have limited mobility or who are unable to stand for long periods of time. To use a power wheelchair, merely use a joystick or push buttons to move the chair in the desired direction.

What Is the Best Elevating Seat Lift Power Chair?

Here's the top-notch electric wheelchair with a range of features apart from an elevating seat.

Jazzy Air 2 Power Wheelchair

  • high-back or solid seat pan, reclining sport seat. The seat features 2” of depth adjustment.
  • angle, height, and depth adjustable armrests;
  • height adjustable headrest;
  • lowers and raises in 11 seconds by using the Air switch or VR2 joystick;
  • drives safely at the top speed of 4 mph in the elevated position;
  • bright LED marker lights offer visibility in all environments;
  • active-Trac® suspension system with Mid-Wheel 6® Technology allows for maximum stability in the elevated and non-elevated positions;
  • single-sided caster forks for enhanced maneuverability
  • under-seat front storage compartment keeps your valuables accessible.

What to Look for When Choosing the Best Elevating Power Wheelchair?

  • Size and weight capacity. Most power wheelchairs have a weight capacity of 250 to 450 pounds. Some chairs are designed for people who weigh more than 450 pounds. You will also want to make sure that the power chair is comfortable for you and has enough space for you to sit in it comfortably.
  • Adjustability. The best power wheelchairs are adjustable so that you can customize them to fit your needs. Look for an electric chair that has an adjustable backrest, seat, and armrests. You should also look for a motorized wheelchair that has adjustable speed settings. This way, you can go as fast or slow as you need to.
  • Suspension system. Suspension is important in a power wheelchair because it helps to absorb the shock of bumps and uneven surfaces. Look for a power wheelchair with an elevating seat that has good suspension, and that is comfortable for you to ride in.
  • Travel range. The range of a power chair is the distance that it can travel on a single charge. Most power wheelchairs have a range of 20 to 30 miles. You will want to make sure that the wheelchair seat lift chair you choose has enough range for your needs.
  • Turning radius. The turning radius is the size of the circle that the wheelchair can turn in. The smaller the turning radius, the easier it is to maneuver the chair in tight spaces. Look for a chair with a small turning radius if you plan on using it in tight spaces.
