Features of front wheel drive power wheelchairs:

  1. Easily maneuverable: Narrow spaces and tight corners are easy to reach with front wheel drive wheelchairs.
  2. Small rear caster wheels, large front tires and lower top speeds help in keeping the machine stable and avoid fishtailing (i.e. when the back end of a wheelchair swivers side to side in an uncontrolled and unstable manner)
  3. These wheelchairs provide a safe and stable motion and safer transfer over diverse surfaces.
  4. Obstacle climbing is one of the greatest strengths of these wheelchairs as the drive wheel is located at the front of the chair.
  5. Front wheel drive wheelchairs are considered to have good stability for elderly people who lack strength.
  6. Driving steep uphill is not a good idea with font wheel drive wheelchairs as the centre of gravity moves from the drive wheel towards the back casters. This action might result in loss of traction and reduced drive control
  7. Front wheel drive power wheelchairs have a turning radius that is lesser than the rear wheel drive wheelchairs but more than mid wheel drive wheelchairs
  8. Small rooms and navigating tighter spaces is easier with front wheel drive power wheelchairs.
  9. Having the largest wheels in the front helps keep driving control.
  10. Softer terrains like a grass lawn, kerbs or a sandy beach are easy to maneuver with front wheel drives.
  11. Lower top speeds
