Both electric wheelchairs and ordinary electric scooters are powered by batteries. Many people can't tell the difference between electric wheelchairs and electric scooters. They mistakenly think that electric wheelchairs are a four-wheeled electric scooter. This is a terribly wrong notion. So what is the difference between an electric wheelchair and an electric scooter?
Electric wheelchairs and professional elderly electric scooters are special means of transportation specially designed for the physical
condition of the elderly. Electric wheelchairs and professional elderly electric scooters have the following essential differences:
Electric wheelchairs and professional elderly electric scooters are medical devices, and manufacturers must have medical device production licenses, medical device registration certificates and other relevant qualifications. Quality management is much stricter than the production supervision of electric scooters.
Electric scooters are designed to meet the needs of office workers, errand runners and other groups of people. In order to meet the needs of the target group, the electric scooter manufacturers compete with each other on who has the highest motor power, who has the longest battery life, who has the fastest speed, and who has the largest load. The electric wheelchair is needed for the daily commuting of the elderly group with slow reaction speed and inconvenient mobility. Due to the characteristics of the elderly group's slow reaction speed, poor coordination, and greatly reduced self-care ability, electric wheelchairs and elderly electric scooters must be very slow, and the simpler the operation, the better.
Although the electric wheelchair and the electric scooter both use a battery-driven motor to move forward, the basic principle is the same, but the safety performance is different. The electric wheelchair has a slow speed and is equipped with an intelligent electromagnetic brake. One-touch operation, all travel operations can be easily operated with just one finger. For the elderly, the electric scooter is too fast to reflect the emergency situation, and it is very easy to cause safety accidents."
Since the electric wheelchair relies on the power system, the circuit of the wheelchair connected to the battery must prevent excessive current, and the operation of the protective circuit method cannot affect the driving, braking and steering functions.
Portable electric wheelchairs are also called lightweight electric wheelchairs, which are mainly different from heavy-duty electric wheelchairs. The net weight of our portable electric wheelchairs is usually around 25Kg, and all of them can be folded, and the wheelchair is easy to operate when folded and unfolded. The portable electric wheelchair has a small space when folded, and can be put into the trunk of a car or taken on an airplane. At present, our lightweight electric wheelchairs include Camel Hope YE246, Camel Lite YE246, YE145C, YE245C, YE100, and YE200.
YATTLL mainly designs and develops lightweight and foldable power wheelchairs, both our traditional electric wheelchairs and lightweight electric wheelchairs can be folded.
At present, our reclining power wheelchairs are upgraded on the basis of lightweight electric wheelchairs. The models of reclining power wheelchairs are: YE245CR, YE100R, YE200R. According to the needs of the market and users, we will also develop new reclining electric wheelchairs in the future.
Yes, currently our main reclining electric wheelchairs are all foldable. Our design concept is portable and reclining, and lightweight design has always been our goal.
In terms of product agency, we are open and willing to cooperate with every partner. YATTLL has its complete distribution system, OEM/ODM are warmly welcome too. We are open to listening to the cooperation mode that you wish. Please give us a call for the start of the bright business.
