Choosing the right wheelbase configuration

There are a variety of choices when it comes to wheelbase configuration. The most common forms found in today’s powered wheelchairs are mid and rear-wheel drive.

To make the right decision, you need to consider your lifestyle, condition, environmental and clinical arrangements, in addition to factoring in each type of wheelbase’s positives and negatives.

The most common form of wheelbase found in modern day powerchairs is mid/centre drive. Often called the “latest evolution” of drivetrain configuration, the mid-wheel drive wheelbase offers the smallest turning radius of all the configurations. Mid-wheel chairs offer the closest movement pattern to that of walking.

Rear wheeled powerchairs are considered the patriarch of the powerchair market. Best suited for outdoor use, these types of chairs can tackle aggressive terrain, deep grass and uneven terrain. If you spend most of your time outdoors, then rear-wheel drive powered wheelchairs are better suited.
