The Veleco Cosmo Electric Wheelchair

Are you considering upgrading to an electric wheelchair? You might be wondering if it’s worth the investment? The good news is that there are many advantages of owning an electric scooter like the Veleco Cosmo. Electric wheelchairs are an excellent solution for people who want to be able to get around independently, but who can’t do so efficiently or comfortably with a manual wheelchair. We at Freedom-Scooter want to bring your attention to some of the advantages of owning an electric wheelchair. In this blog, we look at the 5 main advantages of having an electric wheelchair and how investing in one can improve your lifestyle.

  1. Increases your confidence.

One of the greatest advantages of owning an electric wheelchair is that it will increase your confidence. Many of the people I have met with disabilities find that using an electric wheelchair helps them feel more independent and confident in their ability to get around, which can have a huge impact on their lives in terms of mental health and confidence.


  1. A safe way to travel.

If you or a loved one are looking for an alternative to a manual wheelchair, an electric wheelchair may be a brilliant option. One of the advantages of having an electric wheelchair is that it is safer than a manual wheelchair. Manual wheelchairs are more likely to tip over than electric wheelchairs, which can be more stable due to the additional weight. The braking on an electric wheelchair is via an electromagnetic braking system which is more effortless than with a manual wheelchair. An electric wheelchair allows for less restricted movement than a manual wheelchair.

  1. Improved accessibility

Improved accessibility and mobility, an electric wheelchair is the way to go. Think about going shopping and browsing the rails or shelves, you won’t need to push yourself, so you have more freedom to pick up and look at items. Going out with friends and family is much easier with an electric wheelchair.

Additionally, electric wheelchairs are ideal for use indoors and outdoors, it takes so little effort to climb steep inclines that would be difficult in a manual wheelchair.

  1. Easy to Use.

In addition to increasing confidence and mental health, electric wheelchairs are also very easy to operate. Most models come with a simple joystick that anyone can learn how to use within minutes of sitting in one for the first time.

  1. Suitable for everyone

Electric wheelchairs are suitable for everyone from children to the elderly. No matter your height or weight, you can be sure to find an electric wheelchair that will suit your needs perfectly. There are so many makes and models of electric wheelchairs available on the market, you will be able to find an electric wheelchair that suits your needs.
