Drive Medical started out in 2000 as an independent company called Medical Depot, Inc. Now it is an international supplier of medical equipment. Many times referred to as “one of the fasted growing global distributors of durable medical equipment,” Drive supplies countries from North and South America to Europe and Asia.
Known for all kinds of medical equipment, Drive Medical is especially making great strides with their line of power wheelchairs. Along with their standard models, Drive also supplies innovative, portable power wheelchairs. With their exploratory and inventive ideas, Drive Medical is pioneering the concept of portability with power wheelchairs.
One of the most well known Drive Medical mobility devices is the Drive Cobalt. This scooter is a small, easily portable unit, with a weight capacity of up to 250 pounds. The Cobalt can be dissembled into two components. When the seat is removed from the base, it weighs only 19 pounds. The base itself weights in at 75 pounds. Although one of the lighter mobility devices on the market, it is still recommended that the user acquires some assistance with the heavier base component. The rear wheels power the Cobalt, making this the perfect power wheelchair for individuals who like to stay on the go.
Another popular Drive Medical power wheelchair is the Drive Titan. What makes this chair unique is that it can be modified to be a portable power wheelchair if you choose to make it so. The Titan has a high back captain’s seat for optimum support and comfort and is ideal for use in a small home with a width of only 24 inches and a sharp turning radius of 25 inches. Unlike the Cobalt, the Titan is front wheel drive. The Drive Titan, like the Cobalt, dissembles into two units. However, the larger Titan seat weighs slightly more than the Cobalt at 43 pounds. The base of this chair is a little smaller at only 68 pounds. Both of these Drive Medical Wheelchairs are available in your choice of red or blue.
