Medical and restorative versatility wheelchairs need a high torque DC brushless, or brush, gear motor in order to deliver the long-term performance and reliability that users require.
Choosing a Wheelchair Motor
Wheelchair motors are powerful motors, and they can adequately handle heavy loads (in excess of 300 pounds). Relatively cheap for their size, they can be readily sourced online or in retail stores.
Controlling Wheelchair Motors
Wheelchair motor experts recommend that wheelchair motors have a differential drive – i.e., two motor-driven wheels, with one caster at the front. This makes drive system control simple and allows for easy turning.
