What is a mobility chair?
Mobility chairs are assistive devices that offer solutions to various mobility issues and provide universal access, including to seniors and those with disabilities. They rely on technology to allow their users to keep their independence and facilitate daily tasks around the house or at work through different features.
Mobility chairs can be manually-driven, pushed, or powered. One of the most impressive features of these devices is their ability to belt into tight spaces and maneuver around abruptly-curved and around corners, making them perfect for home use. They are also adjustable and customizable for men and women of all heights, weights, and disabilities.
What is the difference between REAL chairs and an electric mobility scooter?
EMP Living’s mobility chairs are designed for people with limited mobility that can use assistance when performing their daily activities. Our electric wheelchairs and lift chairs include functions to assist people in their homes, work environment or school, places where ease of operation and size are important! The experience with a REAL mobility chair is unique.
A scooter is a much larger device that allows a person to move around without using their legs. These power chairs include motorized wheels and are really aimed towards people that can’t use their legs. This type of device is heavier and bulky, making it less practical when moving around a house or an office, this is why power wheelchairs (or scooters) should only be used by those who cannot move by themselves.
Why choose a mobility chair over a regular wheelchair?
Both mobility chairs and wheelchairs aim to help people with limited mobility remain independent. The two, however, differ in several elements of design, which creates a major impact on their functionality. Wheelchairs are designed to be used outside to help you move from one place to another. They are large and have a wide turning radius making them hard to maneuver inside. Mobility chairs are designed to be used inside to help you perform daily living activities. They are smaller and have smaller, more maneuverable wheels
