You can now get a powered wheelchair for any age user, from 12 months and up. Very young children learn cause and effect faster when in control of a powered mobility aid than they do when using a single switch toy.
The freedom that comes with a powered chair enhances many aspects of life. There are more and better opportunities to socialise, improved independence, easier access to sport and leisure activities, and perhaps improved ability in the work place.
Safety must be of the highest concern when users travel out alone, and they MUST have a way of contacting support if there is a battery problem or a breakdown.
With regards to the products below, all prices are current as of Feb, 2013.
