There are two main types of powerchairs available to you: user-controlled or attendant-controlled. User-controlled powerchairs give back independence and freedom to the user. Fitted with a remote control on one of the padded armrests, the user is able to determine where they want to go with the help of a handy, easy-to-use joystick. Attendant-controlled powerchairs are ideal for anyone who requires help from a carer. With the controls fitted onto the back of the powerchair, the passenger can relax as the attendant takes over.
