Get back to living a more normal life with a robust and convenient electric wheelchair that folds! Each of our models are built for optimal performance and long-lasting comfort. Navigate around your home with ease and spend time with friends and family at different outings.
Like other electric wheelchairs, the foldable models have up to four heavy duty wheels: two large drive wheels and two caster wheels for stabilizing the machine. Using a joystick, the occupant can easily drive even if they have a type of hand injury. This is one of the reasons so many Canadians love power chairs and are moving away from the manual models.

Will Insurance or Government Funding Pay for Folding Power Wheelchairs?
Government funding covers electric wheelchairs with Durable Medical Equipment (DME) coverage. Generally, Insurance will pay for 80% of the electric wheelchair with you paying 20%. But Canadians must meet certain criteria in order to be covered. This includes:
You have a health condition that impacts your mobility.
The doctor who is treating you provides a written order that confirms your medical need for it.
You must be able to use the wheelchair in your home. If you live in a house or apartment that cannot accommodate the machine, Medicare will not cover it.
You are capable of operating the wheelchair or there is someone who is always available to assist you with it.
Government funding and insurance has many other criteria, so be sure you meet all of them, so you can pay less out of pocket. A power chair, whether it folds or not, can be an expensive investment. But Healthcare Solutions offers many types of medical equipment, so if a folding electric wheelchair isn’t right for you, we have other products available for your needs.
