Power wheelchairs are not just perks when it comes to mobility problems. People that have issues with their lower extremities need these wheelchairs in order to lead normal lives, without the handicap of limited mobility. In spite of their necessities, consumers have to be particular when it comes to the power wheelchair they choose to purchase. Different types of wheelchairs fetch different prices--the expensive ones don’t necessarily outdo those at lower ranges,which is why the consumer should be critical about the specifications of the wheelchair he or she purchases, as well as the price. Placing both attributes side by side should give you the correct insight on whether or not the merchandise can be considered a worthwhile investment.
The Pride Jazzy Freedom Power Chair is made out of a double-layered powder coated alloy frame, a mark ofsubstantial durability. Its front and rear casters make it flexible for home and outdoor use alike.Its wheels measure 5” on the solid front and 6” on the solid rear. The Jazzy Freedom has a weight capacity of 300 lbs. and a top speed of 4 mph. A single battery charge has a range of about 13 miles. The power chair operates on batteries with in-line motor technology that ensuresstability. The joystick controller is simple and performs many immediate functions with the touch of a finger. Those who purchase the Jazzy Freedom power chair also have the option of adding front riggings, heel loops, adjustable armrests, and accessories such as cup holders, baskets, cane & crutch carriers as well as oxygen cradles for an additional fee.
However, the real beauty of the Jazzy Freedom is in the name— freedom; freedom from stasis, financial limitations as well as exclusion for those who could not afford to pay the lofty price tags of its predecessors. With it, you can getall the features and specifications of a $4,000 power chair for under $1,500. This may not seem all that outstanding to many. But considering that 82% to 83% of those stricken by crippling conditions are unemployed, (as stated by a study made by the Disability Statistics Center of the University of California) this is something that can be considered a blessing. The World Health Organization, among others, have not failed to emphasize the importance of wheelchairs in empowering people with disabilities, in opening opportunities for education, socialization and professional growth and in relieving common health complications of immobility. So in a society wherein 23% of wheelchair users are below the poverty line and 9.5% of those in working ages are uninsured, it is convenient to know that products that promote all of the said benefits are made more accessible to the general population.
As is obvious, the aptly named Pride Jazzy Freedom Power Chair is more than just a power chair. It is another means to recover life. And it is available for purchase through online retailers such as Electric Wheelchairs 101.
