Solutions for all your power mobility issues


Power mobility devices are a form of assistive equipment that uses a built-in power source to help individuals move around. Generally, patients who are considered good candidates for these devices have significant mobility limitations that impair their ability to perform daily tasks. These limitations should also be too severe to be rectified via the use of a walker or cane.


Types of power mobility devices include both powered scooters and power wheelchairs. The ideal choice for a patient in need of help with their mobility will depend on their specific situation and needs. Users who lack the necessary coverage criteria for scooters, or who are unable to safely operate one, may be suitable candidates for a power wheelchair instead.


Encountering power mobility device issues can be a massive pain, given that you need them in order to get around. Luckily, malfunctions to your mobility assistive equipment don’t need to leave you stuck. The Experts on JustAnswer are available around the clock, wherever you have a working Internet connection.


Reach out today for customized guidance and helpful insights from verified professionals who have the experience and ability you can depend on. Ask follow-up questions, and approve payment to your Expert only when you're completely satisfied.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
