Stay Mobile in a Quickie Wheelchair
A Quickie wheelchair can be just what you need if you require some assistance to maintain your lifestyle. The company makes many types of wheelchairs to accommodate those in different situations. You can find a variety of new and used options on eBay.What are the choices for power wheelchairs?
There are numerous Quickie wheelchairs that rely on a motor instead of manual force to propel itself forward. This can come in handy if you have limited arm strength and/or must travel long distances. The company's wheelchairs come in either rear- or mid-wheel drive. Typically, mid-wheel drive wheelchairs are more maneuverable, so they may be more ideal in smaller, indoor spaces. Rear-wheel drive models may offer a smoother ride, and you may prefer the stability they offer. Examples of models that have these different systems include:
- Rear-wheel drive: S-636, S-646 SE, P-222 SE
- Mid-wheel drive: Pulse 6, QM-710, QM-715, QM-720
