Electric wheelchairs and scooters

Electrically driven wheelchairs and electric vehicles (scooters) are used for the mobility of people with walking disabilities or limited walking ability.

Powered wheelchairs are suitable for covering medium to long distances and thus extend the range of activity of people with a walking disability. Powered wheelchairs have a high dead weight and there must be enough room to manoeuvre. Most models are therefore not well suited for indoor use, but there are also smaller power wheelchairs especially for indoor use.
