There are a number of limitations that come with using older model electric wheelchairs. They are typically bulky with a poor turning radius, and heavy, weighing 150 pounds or more. They are a hassle to transport which makes users lives very limiting. Most people end up having to invest hundreds to thousands of dollars to purchase and install a lift on their car in order to transport them. Some go as far as shelling out tens of thousands of dollars just to purchase a van which is solely used to transport the electric wheelchair. It is a market that has seen little or no innovation over the years, but that era has finally come to an end.
The Smart Chair is a light weight, fold-able and very portable electric wheelchair that was designed with the consumers’ needs in mind. The Smart Chair weighs only 50 pounds and folds up easily to fit conveniently in the trunk of a car or SUV with room to spare. It uses a light weight lithium ion battery that retains a charge for longer than batteries commonly found on older model electric wheelchairs.
The Smart Chair also has a small turning radius of 31.5 inches (80 centimeters) which makes it ideal for use indoors as well as outdoors. The Smart Chair can accommodate users weighing up to 250 pounds (113.4 kilograms) with a maximum speed of 3.75 miles per hour (6 kilometers per hour) and can last for constant use for nearly 10 miles (16 kilometers). It is equipped with Anti-Tilt wheels in the rear which prevent it from tipping over, and can easily handle slopes up to 12 degrees.
The Smart Chair makes for a great companion or secondary device for users who already own an older model electric wheelchair, as it gives them the ability to go places they wouldn’t normally be able to go. It is well suited to be able to take on a variety of vehicles such as cars, trucks, SUVs, trains, busses, cruise ships and airplanes. Best of all, it costs significantly less than most electric wheelchairs on the market today.
