When it comes to choosing the best travel power chair for your needs, you’ve probably already realized there are A LOT of options! So, how do you decide which is the best power wheelchair? This Shoprider Jimmie Captain Seat Travel Power Chair ULYWPBS review will dive deep into this power chair's top features to help you decide if it’s the perfect power wheelchair for you. This travel power chair offers numerous benefits, including:
Light Weight Frame
When you set out to buy a power wheelchair, you probably didn’t put too much thought into how much it weighs, right? I mean, all adult power chairs should be light weight and easy to move.
BUT that’s not always the case. Get a poorly designed power chair and you’ll quickly feel like you're carting around a sled of lead! This leads to quickly drained batteries and a lot of headaches.
Lucky for us all, the Shoprider Jimmie Captain Seat Travel Power Chair is built in a unique way to promote high performance with its light weight frame and strong battery life.
Unlike other adult power chairs that are built with cheap materials, Shoprider's Jimmie Power Chair is thoughtfully built with materials that are light weight and functional. If you put this chair on a scale, you'd quickly see it in comes in at a whopping 106 lbs. Now that's light for a power chair!
Have you ever tried to take a part a power chair to put up for storage or load in to the car? It can quickly get overwhelming and feel like you're disassembling a rubik's cube.
You don't have to buy an adult power chair that makes you feel this way.
The Shoprider Jimmie Power Chair is designed with you in mind. This power wheelchair is fast and easy to dissemble into three pieces; with the heaviest part weighing just 35.8 lbs. You can have it broken down and on your way within 10 minutes.
There's nothing more uncomfortable than riding all day on a mobility scooter with either your knees crunched to your chest or your feet just barely touching the floor. It leads to aching backs, tight hips, beat up knees, and overall poor posture.
While most of the industry thinks it's okay to have a one size fits all seat and no suspension, Shoprider knows that's not healthy.
The Shoprider Jimmie Captain Seat Power Chair is built with your comfort in mind. This scooter has a wide 18" high back captain seat, that is very comfortable and height adjustable, as well as reclines. The arms of the chair are height adjustable so you can be sure it'll fit snug on your elbows. The suspension system is top notch so you won't even notice riding over small rocks or bumpy terrain.
The Shoprider Jimmie wants you to feel like you're riding in your lounge chair at home, and it does a really good job of helping you feel that way!
Safety is the most important factor when purchasing a power wheelchair. And having a chair that is hard to control is the number one reason why accidents happen. If the power chair is too complex or poorly designed, then the risk of injury increases substantially.
Shoprider has been in business for decades, and they know the importance of an easy to control power chair with only the necessities provides the perfect blend of handling and performance.
The Shoprider Jimmie uses the Joystick Controller (VSI) that easily controls a safe and effective speed. The controls are simple and quick to figure out. No more worrying what a certain button does and how it will effect your ride.
The Jimmie features exclusive flat free tires with an adjustable tiller angle that helps you quickly adjust to climbing small hills of up to 6° in grade. It also has a moderately high ground clearance of 2.25 inches so you can easily ride over most surfaces.
Bottom line: you can feel confident knowing that you have a very safe and easily controlled mobility scooter for you to enjoy.
Made in the USA
Decades ago, you’d never hear the phrases “power wheelchair” and “made in America” in the same sentence. It just didn’t make sense; the worlds were too far apart.
But Shoprider didn’t think so.
They knew they could build a superior power chair using American made materials and craftsmanship here in the states.
So they set out to do just that. And Shoprider was born!
All of Shoprider's power chairs are built here in America using USA-sourced materials to ensure safe and reliable products. Every power chair is engineered to withstand the extreme temperatures of the United States vast climates, so you can feel confident knowing your chair will last in any season.
So enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing no company is as committed to sourcing, building and testing genuine made-in-the-USA power wheelchairs than Shoprider.
