Front Wheel Drive Power Chairs

Showing 1 - 13 of 13 items

Due to the fact that the drive wheel is located in the front of the wheelchair base, obstacle climbing is considered a strength of FWD power wheelchairs. 

FWD wheelchairs are not known for performing well at high speeds and may fishtail when driving at top speeds. While the wheelchair may have a tighter radius for maneuvering around corners, the user must account for rear part of the wheelchair in order for the entire base to swing around. Remembering to account for what is behind a user and out of sight can be confusing and/or difficult for a user.
