A power wheelchair is a wheelchair that is propelled by an electric motor rather than manual power. Motorized wheelchairs are powered with rechargeable batteries and the user will control the mobility with a joystick. The chair will move in the direction that the joystick is pointed. Motorized wheelchairs are useful for those that may not be able to manually propel themselves or who may need to travel longer distances.
