Compact Mid-Wheel Drive Power Chair Review

HS-2800 RedThe Compact Mid-Wheel Drive Power Chair also known as the HS-2800, is a versatile electric wheelchair designed to be small and stable for the user. It is fully adjustable in all areas such as the seat, joystick, and foot rest.  It can be used both indoors and outdoors with ease, though we do think it performs better outdoors.

Read on to see the key features, easy to understand specifications plus the pros and real customer opinions.

Features

Comfort

The seat has considerable padding and a proper headrest so you can spend your time in a comfortable position when driving. The adjusting seat and foot rest can put you in the best position for your body to remain ache free from long periods of sitting. There is proper support for your arms and a seat belt to prevent you from tipping out. There are large anti tip tires and stabilizer wheels to help make curb climbing smoother.

Driving

Turning

The turning circle is not the smallest we have seen but despite this it can still be used indoors when appropriate furniture adjustments have been made.  This chair will handle maneuvering inside shops perfectly well, so because you can use it inside and outside your home it is versatile. It is one of the smallest electric wheelchairs in terms of footprint which allows it to have a slightly larger turning circle but still prove useful.

Medium Top Speed

Has thumb stick drive and the maximum speed is 4 mph which isn’t the fastest but is fast enough to get you around wherever you are going. Lower speeds generally lead to a more stable ride as the suspension will be less bumpy.

Total Range

On one battery charge it will travel approximately 14 miles.

Adjustment

Seat

You can adjust seat height, tilt and headrest height to put you in the best position.

Foot Plate

The foot plate can be moved up and down so you can sit in the most ergonomic position to prevent back pain.

Customer Reviews

Positives

Customers really focused on the comfort that all the adjustability of the seat offered. From moving everything into a position that was comfortable for them even those with movement impairments that left them confined to a chair found it really comfortable for extremely long durations.

Negatives

Something that customers felt was poorly designed was the speed control as it wasn’t as sensitive as they would’ve liked, however still offers a lot of speeds ranging from slow – fast walking speed.
