Front wheel drive with a tight turning radius and a swivel seat for convenience.
The M48 Power Wheelchair by EWheels is a front wheel drive power wheelchair for both indoor and outdoor use. A tight 24” turning radius gives you the maneuverability to navigate inside the home whether a large living room or the confines of a bathroom. Front, rear, and center suspension with 4 casters and a 2.4” ground clearance makes the EW-M48 plenty capable to handle outdoor terrain. Height and width adjustable armrests with an angle adjustable backrest make sitting in the wheelchair comfortable as you can customize your positioning to your preference.
What Makes It Different
Some power wheelchairs will have an additional charge for a 20” seat width – especially one with an angle adjustable backrest, but the two come standard on the M48. Front, Center and rear suspension is also standard making your ride as smooth as possible. Most full size power wheelchairs will have a turning radius of 30” or greater. The 24” turning radius on the M48 makes it very convenient to navigate whether for indoor outdoor usage.
Why We Like It
A lengthy list of options that often add to the cost of many power wheelchairs all come standard on the M48. Suspension for front, center, and rear gives you a smooth ride when navigating outdoors over uneven terrain. The 4 casters with a 2.4” ground clearance will allow to venture into your yard while the 24” turning radius gets you into and around spatially limited areas of the home. A 14.2 mile charge range allows you a full day’s worth of ride on a single charge.
Measure from the most posterior point of the body to the inside of the knee, minus at least two inches. Some prefer more leg overhang to make room for their hand when lifting their leg.
Measured from the seat base to the top of the chair back. Power wheelchair riders need upper back support, particularly for the moment of initial acceleration.
Determines how far the toes extend away from the body, measured from the horizontal. A tighter angle allows the electric power wheelchair to turn around in less space. Depends in part on ability of the knee to bend towards the perpendicular.
Determined by the widest point of the body from knee to hip, plus an inch to ensure room to move. Consider bulk of clothing, particularly a heavy winter coat, if relevant.
Front Seat to Floor5
Measure the leg from the back of the knee to the sole of the foot. Then subtract the thickness of the cushion when it is compressed. Next, add a minimum of two inches for footrest clearance. Electric power wheelchairs are almost never foot-propelled by the user - so excluding the additional two inch footrest height for propelling is very rare.
