I want to rent a Power Chair

Power chairs are a wonderful option for someone who is an at home user of a power chair with much practice on how to maneuver it.  It is not an option for someone who has never used one before.  Power chairs are maneuvered via a joystick and takes much practice to control.  It has a larger base which makes it harder to maneuver in tight spaces including elevators.

 

Once you have determined if you are a candidate for a power chair we will then need to know the height and weight for the user.  This allows us to determine the correct size - standard, heavy duty or bariatric. We will also need to know if they require a left or right hand control.  Please note that a power chair does not fit in a standard stateroom and will therefore need an accessible stateroom.

 

If you are not a Power Chair home user we would recommend a scooter instead.  They are much easier to manuaver without any previous experience.
