Electric wheelchair

When you would like to (continue to) drive independently but can no longer manage with a manual wheelchair, you often opt for electrical assistance or an electric wheelchair. A wheelchair from 2KERR is also a good solution when you have a (walking) disability and still want to go out for a while (and for longer).

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?

On the beach with an electric wheelchair

Besides forest paths and dirt roads, the beach is also (again) accessible with an electric wheelchair. On many Dutch beaches there is a special beach wheelchair for rent, but how would it be if you could just go to the beach with your own wheelchair? This is possible with a Seated Segway from 2KERR! By choosing off-road/beach wheels, you can drive onto the beach in no time with a Seated Segway. Enjoy the freedom in an electric wheelchair with balance technology.

How does the wheelchair with balance technology work?

Good to know is that the wheelchair itself keeps the balance, the Segway technique ensures 100 times per second that you remain perfectly balanced and therefore do not fall over. This type of wheelchair moves with the user. If you move your body forward the wheelchair will start to move and to stop or reverse you simply move backwards. The wheelchairs from 2KERR have a removable handlebar or a joystick (depending on the brand and type) to steer to the left and to the right. There are even models where you also use your body to steer left and right. This allows you to drive completely hands-free, which of course gives you the ultimate feeling of freedom.

The electric Seated Segway can turn around its axis and is therefore very manoeuvrable, even in small spaces such as an elevator. Doorsteps and thresholds are no longer an obstacle for you as a wheelchair user.
