Old - Rear Wheel Drive Power Wheelchairs

Rear wheel drive power chairs are best known for offering the fastest top speed and performing well at those higher speeds. Rear wheel drive units operate and drive very straight, which can be an advantage when driving at high speeds. Additionally, a rear wheel drive power chair handles rough terrain well and is considered to have better stability than other types of power chairs.  

As time has progressed, rear wheel drive power chairs have advanced in design and functionality. However, what's most impressive is that manufacturers now see consumers of rear wheel drive electric wheelchairs as a distinct demographic and cater to their needs. Today's rear wheel drive units are designed for more aggressive users with tough components, large casters, and an advanced suspension. 

These power chairs cater to the independent living culture at its best, with technologies that go from driving through your living room to the streets without a hiccup.
