The purpose of getting an electric wheelchair is to make your life easier, so why not get a lightweight electric wheelchair that’s also portable? Whether you call it an “electric wheelchair,” a “motorized wheelchair,” or even a “power chair,” it’s convenient, has feather-touch disassembly for transportation, and is easy to use.
Our lightweight electric wheelchairs come with two heavy-duty drive wheels and two caster wheels for stability. Occupants with hand injuries or pain can still operate the power chair because it uses a joystick controller for navigation. More and more people are seeing the benefits of electric wheelchairs versus the manual models.
All of our models provide top performance with comfort that lasts. Head out to the store, have lunch with friends, or relax in your living room.
What Does a Small Electric Wheelchair Offer?
Healthcare Solutions carries trusted brands such as Pride Mobility, Golden Technologies, and Whill, so you can always drive around inside your home, head out to the store or to the local park in comfort.
Our models come with front-wheel drive, middle-wheel drive, or rear-wheel drive, so you can find a model that suits terrain of all types. Our models offer a variety of features, from Lithium ion batteries that can power your chair for extensive periods, to foot platforms with ample space, to sufficient speed capabilities that ensure you can keep up with friends and family.
We also offer folding electric wheelchairs if you want to explore that option. Call us to learn more about our power wheelchair selection or if you have questions regarding our many other products.
Will Government Funding or Insurance Pay for Power Wheelchairs?
The purchase of power wheelchairs can be covered by government funding or insurance with Durable Medical Equipment (DME) coverage. Canadians usually pay only 20% of the power wheelchair, with insurance covering the rest of the price.
To qualify for DMS coverage, a customer requiring a power wheelchair must meet certain criteria, including:
A health condition affects your mobility
The doctor who treats you for the cause of your impaired mobility submits a written order, confirming your need for a power wheelchair
There is an individual who is always present to assist you with operating the wheelchair or you are capable of operating the electric wheelchair yourself
Your place of residence is designed for your use of the power wheelchair. If your apartment or house does not offer the convenience of manoeuvrability, Medicare will not cover the cost
These are just a few of the requirements, so be sure you qualify for all of them in order to save money on a lightweight electric wheelchair. While it can be an expensive investment, a power wheelchair makes everyday life much easier, especially if it’s a small one.
