Powered wheelchairs is described as a powered wheelchair that must be selected carefully in order to ensure it not only meets the needs of the individual who will use it, but also represents good value for the money being invested in it.

Physical considerations include posture, strength, sensation, visual acuity and perception, and the ability to learn how to use the wheelchair safely. A functional evaluation should include actual use of the wheelchair in everyday settings; an evaluation of the individual's ability to get in and out of the wheelchair; and the ability to perform needed activities from the wheelchair.

Transportation to and from various settings also is an important consideration, whether a private van is available to transport the individual in the chair , or is it necessary for the chair to fold or disassemble in order to be carried in an automobile trunk
