An electric wheelchair is a significant improvement over manually driven wheelchairs. They are easy to drive not only over the horizontal surface but uphill as well. People with mobility impairment as well as those with cardiovascular issues can make best use of these wheelchairs.

Those who prefer buying electric wheelchair consider a number of things before choosing the best one. This is because a large variety of electric wheelchairs is available in the market. You can also attract more customers to your store by obtaining different varieties from wheel chair exporters and suppliers.

Weight Support

You must offer electric wheelchairs that are designed to bear different weights of the users. It is an important factor people consider while purchasing an electric wheelchair so that it is not damaged by excess of load. Different wheelchair suppliers can be visited to obtain wheelchairs with different weight capacities.

Different Propulsion Method

There are three main varieties of electric wheelchairs based upon the method of propulsion they support. Wheelchairs with rear wheel drive are fast but they offer poor support to turning. The second variety of wheelchairs has front wheel drive that meets turning requirements efficiently but suffers from lower speed. Finally, there are mid wheel drive wheelchairs that have the most suitable turning capabilities but they are not good for floors with uneven surface. Your store should offer all three types of electric wheelchairs to help different customers choose the best one.

Indoor and Outdoor Support

Not all electric wheelchairs are designed to perform equally well indoor as well as outdoor. Your store will be visited by the customers who would like to use the electric wheelchair outdoor extensively. So, you must offer them the variety of wheelchairs that are built to handle weather conditions, rough surfaces and other factors. At the same time, you must offer the wheelchairs that are designed to be used indoor.

Transportation Support

The customers visiting your store might be interested in buying an electric wheelchair which can be easily transported in a vehicle. So, you must offer the wheelchairs that can be dismantled so that they fit inside a vehicle. Make sure that the wheelchairs you offer are easy to dismantle and assemble so that the user’s family members have convenience using them.

Type of Battery

Some highly informed customers would like to consider the type of battery installed in the electric wheelchair before purchasing it. Gel batteries, wet batteries and AGM batteries are the popular types used in these wheelchairs. It can add to your profits if you sell the wheelchairs supported by different battery types.

Some Other Tips


You can also sell the electric wheelchairs with different styles of armrests and legrests. Another good way to offer variety in electric wheelchairs is by choosing the wheelchairs that can easily fit all possible door sizes. Speed and seating styles are other two important factors on the basis of which you can offer different styles of wheelchairs. Finally, you must offer electric wheelchairs manufactured by different brands and those having different price range.
