Types of electric power wheelchairs to choose from
Motorized power wheelchairs are usually made with one of three different drive wheel systems. Each type is operated by a joystick.
- Rear-wheel drive (RWD)
- Mid-wheel drive (MWD)
- Front-wheel drive (FWD)
Mid-wheel, or center-drive power wheelchairs provide a tight turning radius for optimum accessibility and maneuverability indoors, and the performance of six wheels on the ground which allows for a smoother ride outdoors.
On the other hand, some users are more comfortable using a rear wheel or front wheel drive power wheelchair for their stability outdoors, especially at higher speeds.
All consumer electric power wheelchairs we sell include a battery charger and batteries.
Additional power wheelchair features that may be included:
- Power elevating seat
- Semi-recline seat
- Adjustable height seat
- Adjustable height and width armrests
- Flip-back or removable arms
- Folding frame
- Removable footrests
- Multiple seat sizes
Some manufacturers also include a service warranty which covers any in-home service and labor for any warranty related issue during the first year.
Frequently asked questions about electric power wheelchairs
How much do electric power wheelchairs weigh?
Most people who ask this question are wondering if they can pick it up and carry it or put it in a van. So we'll answer that question assuming you want a lightweight wheelchair. For this, none competes with Golden's new Cricket power wheelchair. It weighs in at only 33 pounds! Compare that to Golden's Compass power wheelchair at 179 pounds!
Is a power wheelchair covered by Medicare?
Medicare Part B may cover electric power wheelchairs as durable medical equipment (DME) if the doctor treating your condition submits a written order stating that you have a medical need for a wheelchair for use in your home. Refer to the Medicare website (opens in a new window) to find out more about power wheelchair coverage.
What is the difference between electric and power wheelchairs?
Usually nothing, at least here. We use both words to define the wheelchairs we carry. They are both electric (battery) powered and they are power chairs in that each one is more than a simple mobility chair that can get you around inside your home. They give you the "power" to enjoy the outdoors because you can drive them outside, across lawns, dirt, sidewalks, and more. And some also have the power to navigate different types or rougher terrains.
What features should I look for if I want to be able to transport the chair in a car?
Three things are important for portability:
- Weight (see question 1 above)
- Folding frame
- Size (when it's folded will it fit?)
- Disassembly (can it be disassembled and then how hard is it to assemble back together?)
Are there any disadvantages to having an electric power wheelchair?
We believe the advantages outweigh the disadvantages, but here are a couple that come to mind:
- Portability - Most don't fold so moving them from one place to another can be difficult.
- Batteries need to be recharged - But they run for many miles, from about 6-24 miles on a single charge depending on the chair, so this is not typically a problem as most don't go those long distances.
- They are pricier than traditional wheelchairs.
The advantage, of course, is that the patient benefits from a more independent lifestyle. That is worth its weight in gold!

Why should I do business with you and not Amazon or some other home medical equipment company?
First, we are a family-run business with years of experience. We know our customers needs and we are careful about what we choose to sell to meet those needs. That’s why we sell only the very best home medical equipment brands. We also offer free shipping, low price guarantee, and easy returns.
In addition, you never need to feel uncertain over what to buy because you can engage in live chat or on the phone with an expert. Together, we’ll make sure you get exactly what you need.
How much is shipping?
Shipping is free in the Continental USA for all products. Please contact us if you require shipping to Alaska or Hawaii.
What if I don't like it? What is your return policy?
Some products by law cannot be returned for hygienic reasons.. Those products are marked accordingly on the product page. For all others, we offer a 30-day return policy on most products. All returns and/or exchanges must have prior authorization. If you received a damaged product, you may return and exchange that product at no cost to you. All others will be shipped at the customer’s expense to the least costly location as determined by ADHME. A 15-20% restocking fee will also apply depending on the item. To return products, call customer service at 800-956-6616 for instructions and details.
You said you will match price if I found a cheaper price elsewhere. What do I need to do to get that low price?
Please verify with the business, where you found a cheaper price, the TOTAL cost to you, including any additional option costs and shipping costs. Please make note of their website address prior to contacting us because we will need it to verify the price. Be aware, many web (e-commerce) retailers do not include shipping with the price of their products. Or, they may have a lower cost of a particular product (i.e., wheelchair) but it will not include a necessary option (i.e., footrests). Be forewarned about all the fine print.
Some restrictions apply. For example, we may not be able to compete with "big box" stores such as Amazon or Walmart. But sometimes you may find that our advertised price is already lower than theirs!
Do you bill Medicare?
In order to keep our costs down and offer greatly reduced prices, ADHME does not bill any insurance company. However, for certain products that Medicare may partially reimburse on a purchase (i.e., commodes, lift chairs, walkers and rollators), we do provide a detailed paid invoice which will include any product HCPCS billing codes. We suggest checking with your private insurance company about possible reimbursement from them with your paid receipt.
