Power Wheelchairs: Power-Base
Power-Base Chairs have great maneuverability. Most Center-Wheel-Drive chairs like these can turn-on-a-dime, making them the most popular for use inside a home and the most maneuverable outside. If you need a power chair to run up and down the street at 4, 5, or 6 mph, you'll want to pay attention to "Drive Wheel" size. The larger diameter the drive wheels perform optimum outdoors. 14" rear wheels on a Jazzy Power Chair will run easy 5-6mph. Driving range averages about 15 miles on a charge.
Batteries are an important component on all power chairs. Sealed Gel Batteries are what you want - no leaks, no odor, no fuss. Lead-Acid Batteries have slightly higher amperage ratings then Gel batteries, but GEL batteries have a longer lifetime. Get Gel batteries if you travel with your chair, especially on airlines. Gel batteries have a full year longer lifecycle then lead acid batteries.
