Front Wheel Drive

Front wheel drive power chairs are great for use on uneven terrains and off road use. They climb easily over small obstacles and kerbs. The drive wheels are located in front of the user and the smaller casters are at the rear of the user. These chairs are the more stable ones with top speed of about 5 miles per hour, slower than their rear counterparts. For people who like to travel at low speeds it is the best selection. These wheelchairs have a smaller turning radius and hence they are easy to take along in malls or shopping centres as your mate while you pick up the grocery.


Choose from a range pf front wheel drive wheelchairs that have the drive wheels in the front of the user’s center of gravity. They are very stable and provide a tight turning radius. Strong yet comfortable, these front wheel drive wheelchairs provide great maneuverability indoors and outdoors. Take your pick from the different models available here with amazing options on the accessories! We have front wheel drive wheelchairs that deliver quality with value from experienced makers like Drive Medical and Pride Mobility.
