Factors To Consider When Choosing a Power Wheelchair

When buying a power wheelchair, considering certain factors can ensure you select the right one to meet your mobility needs and lifestyle.

These factors include:

Mobility Needs and Lifestyle

Consider your specific mobility needs, such as whether you’ll primarily use the power wheelchair indoors, outdoors, or both. Your daily activities and terrain will influence the type of chair you need. Most power wheelchairs glide smoothly over flat surfaces, grass, and hills, but don’t handle rougher terrain such as potholes, gravel, mud, etc…

Type of Power Wheelchair

Different power wheelchairs include rear, mid, and front-wheel drive models. Each has its advantages and limitations. Rear-wheel drive chairs offer stability and are better for outdoor use. Mid-wheel drive chairs provide a smaller turning radius and are more maneuverable indoors. Front-wheel drive chairs offer a compromise between indoor and outdoor performance. Choose the type that best suits your needs.

Seating and Comfort

Choose an option that accommodates your body size and shape comfortably. Consider options like seat width, depth, and cushioning. For added comfort, you might also need specific features like adjustable armrests, headrests, or a reclining function.

Battery Life and Range

The power wheelchair’s battery life and range are critical, especially if you plan to use it for extended periods or long distances. Check the chair’s battery capacity, how long it takes to charge, and whether you can easily swap out the batteries. Make sure the range is sufficient for your daily needs.

Maneuverability and Controls

Ensure the chair’s maneuverability meets your needs. Consider the turning radius, ease of navigation in tight spaces, and control mechanisms. Some chairs offer different control options, such as joystick or touchpad controls, so choose the most comfortable. Also, look for features like anti-tip wheels for stability. If you have a wheelchair ramp or vertical platform lift at home, make sure it can accommodate the chair you select.

Additional Features and Accessories

Kohll’s Rx offers a full inventory of accessories. Depending on your needs, you may want to consider additional features and accessories like a power tilt or recline function, adjustable footrests, custom color options, and storage solutions. These extras can enhance your overall experience and make daily activities more convenient.

Additionally, be sure to test-drive the chair to get a feel for how it handles in different environments and whether it’s comfortable for extended use. While test-driving the power chairs, you can better visualize the accessories and accessibility options you might need to get your power chair in a vehicle and in and out of your house.

How Much Do Power Wheelchairs Cost?

Your budget is another factor influencing your choice of a power wheelchair. The cost includes a relatively wide range of prices. We partner with CORE Bank to provide financing options for costs not covered by insurance.

Does Medicare or Private Insurance Cover the Cost of Power Wheelchairs?

Getting the cost of a power wheelchair covered by Medicare or an insurance company involves meeting a number of requirements. You’ll need a prescription from your doctor for a power wheelchair. Insurance companies require an occupational or physical therapist to complete a seating/mobility assessment of patients. (Kohll’s can help connect you to an OT or PT if you don’t currently see one.)

You’ll then need to schedule a face-to-face exam with your doctor, who evaluates the OT/PT assessment, updates the prescription if necessary, and completes all required paperwork. When an insurance company approves coverage, it may be for all or a portion of the cost. If Kohll’s doesn’t have the wheelchair on hand, we will order it once we know that coverage is approved. It can take 2 to 3 weeks before it arrives at the store.
