Choosing between a scooter and a power wheelchair can be a difficult decision for some people that are in need of power mobility.
In my years as a product specialist I’ve heard so many people say that they don’t want a power wheelchair because they don’t want to look sick! If you think scooters look sporty, but powerchairs look medical, just have a look at the all new Go-Chair by Pride Mobility. A member of the Go-Go series of power mobility products, the new Go-Chair is sporty as can be!
Life brings changes and challenges. Don’t let “what someone else thinks” dictate what will work for you and make your quality of life better. I say you should get what will be comfortable, convenient and meets your needs.
A power wheelchair will pull right up to a desk or table. There is no need to transfer to another chair for dinner or surfing the web. Do you live in a small place where it would be difficult to maneuver a scooter? Power wheelchairs, especially the portable ones, turn in a very small space and go get through most doors without difficulty. Do you have trouble with balance? It is easier to sit down on a power wheelchair seat than to get on and off of a scooter platform.
Are you convinced yet? Take a look at the ALL NEW GO CHAIR from Pride Mobility. This portable chair is easy to take with you to the mall, the park or the zoo! It disassembles into 6 pieces. The heaviest piece is only 36 lbs! That rivals most travel scooters on the market.
