Full-Sized Power Wheelchair
This may be a preferable option If the user will be in a power wheelchair for most of the day. Full-size power chairs often include bigger seats, armrests, and footrests, as well as more cushioning for comfort. Because the battery is bigger than that of travel/portable power wheelchairs, it offers a wider travel range.
