Indoor electric wheelchairs are intended for use around the house or in the workplace. They are generally compact in size so they negotiate narrow passageways and generally have a very tight turning circle. Some indoor powerchairs have a standing or high rise function enabling the user to reach high cupboards or simply to have an eye level conversation.
Indoor/ Outdoor and Outdoor/Indoor powerchairs are suitable for use both indoors and outdoors but both types perform better in one area than the other. So an indoor / outdoor powerchair can be used outdoors as well as indoors but is generally a better performer indoors than an outdoor/ indoor powerchair – and vice versa!
Outdoor powerchairs are suitable for use primarily outdoors as they are larger vehicles, usually with lights and indicators making them class III vehicles and therefore road legal. Some users however will want to use their outdoor powerchair for off road use, and for this a powerchair with oversized wheels and suspension is required.
