CTM Homecare’s Compact Mid-Wheel is a motorized wheelchair that comes with many standard features. This wheelchair can easily move around indoors and outdoors and has a maximum speed of 4 mph. It can climb curbs and has a ground clearance of approximately 2.5 inches. Furthermore, this wheelchair features plenty of padding and a backrest for comfort during long periods spent in the motorized chair.
When using the Compact Mid-Wheel, you can easily maneuver indoors or outdoors. This device can travel up to 4 mph, and it has enough battery life to venture as far as 14 miles. This isn’t the fastest wheelchair, and the battery life is shorter than the best models boast. Other wheelchairs can travel up 19 or more miles on a single battery charge.
When outdoors, this electric wheelchair can easily climb hills up to 8 degrees. Additionally, it can climb curbs that are approximately 1.6 inches tall, and the wheelchair has 2.6-inch ground clearance. This allows you to travel over some rocky terrain without too much difficulty. Furthermore, this product features large anti-tip casters in the front for added stability.
You can also adjust the seat, footrest and headrest. The chair is padded and a seatbelt is included. An optional feature on this product is a swinging joystick so you can move the joystick out of your way when you are sitting at a table.
This electric wheelchair has the capacity to handle a rider up to 300 pounds, which is the average weight limit for many electric wheelchairs. This model weighs 206 pounds, making it one of the heavier wheelchairs on our lineup.
The wheelchair frame is covered for three years and the electronic components are covered for up to 13 months. The three-year warranty on the frame is the shortest timeframe we saw compared to other wheelchairs on our lineup.
