With an electric wheelchair you can easily cover some longer distances if you can’t (any more) with a manual wheelchair or on your feet. There are different types:
• Front wheel drive, this wheelchair has large wheels at the front and small swivel wheels at the back. This wheelchair can easily negotiate obstacles but is less stable.
• Rear wheel drive, this wheelchair has swivel wheels in the front and large wheels in the back. This wheelchair is very stable but less maneuverable.
• Mid-wheel drive, this wheelchair has both front and rear swivel wheels with larger wheels in between. This type rides easily over sloping hills but on the other hand can get stuck quickly.
• Electric wheelchair with balance technology, this wheelchair has two large wheels and is equipped with parking supports. This wheelchair rides easily over different surfaces and is very maneuverable.
Electric wheelchair with balance technology
An electric wheelchair from 2KERR uses the Segway balance technique. What is very important to know: you do not have to do anything yourself, you do not necessarily need a good balance. Because of this special technique it is possible to ride on 2 wheels. This type of wheelchair is also called Seated Segway. As that name suggests, this wheelchair stays balanced by the technique itself.
An electric wheelchair for the woods?
Unlike a “regular” electric wheelchair or a manual wheelchair, a wheelchair with balancing technology can drive over many different types of surfaces with ease. This makes it possible to drive through the forest and on dirt roads, for example. So you no longer have to look for a walking route especially suitable for wheelchairs but you can just go anywhere with a Seated Segway. Everyone likes to go outside, right?
