The “active” in the word active wheelchairs is actually self-explanatory. These wheelchairs are actively and autonomously moved by the wheelchair user and are always individually adaptable to the needs of the user. They enable users to be an active part of society in everyday life. The more precise the adaption, the more active and independent the users are. Active wheelchairs are usually lighter, more agile models that can be moved with less effort. At the same time, however, they offer very good seating and driving characteristics. The biggest advantages are thus the individual adaptation possibilities for maximum independence and mobility in everyday life.
The term active wheelchair has been replaced in the official language by adaptive wheelchair. “Adaptive” is a synonym for “flexible”, which describes these wheelchairs perfectly. Adaptive or active wheelchairs are divided into two types, models with foldable or rigid frame. Foldable wheelchairs are often a little heavier with their folding mechanism than rigid frame wheelchairs. Active wheelchairs with rigid frame usually have a higher stability compared to folding wheelchairs and the driving force used is transmitted directly. In Addition, the rigid active wheelchair is usually lighter than a folding active wheelchair, because no folding mechanism is needed.
Also, paediatric wheelchairs and wheelchairs with tiltable function can be active wheelchairs or adaptive wheelchairs. Especially with these models, a variety of customization options are very important. SORG offers special wheelchairs for children with a variety of equipment, so the wheelchairs can be individually adapted to the smallest of children and offer you the opportunity to participate independently in life.
