The increased popularity of powered wheelchairs or mobility scooters is a great help for people with disabilities. They’re helpful in enabling wheelchair users to move about longer distances and longer amounts of time.
The gap that’s emerging now is the support system to accommodate these innovative devices. Regular vans do not fit with them unless they have a specialty ramp, and regular cars cannot fit them at all unless the device is the foldable type.
Simply put, power wheelchairs are motorized variations of regular manual wheelchairs. They may be designed for indoor and outdoor use. They are easily maneuverable and can negotiate tight spaces.
With a lot of different customizable models, the size and variety of the different types also mean that traditional vehicles cannot universally accommodate them thus making it harder to get a ride.
Scooters offer assistance for those who have difficulty walking short distances. They are steered using handlebars and a tiller. Some models have a basket in the front or some space at the back to hold items.
The same challenges with power wheelchairs apply here too, that the size of the device may cause difficulty of accommodation in cars and they require a ramp or a large enough lift.
