Manual vs Electric Wheelchair

A wheelchair is used by disable people. People who face difficulty in walking due to injury or illness also use wheelchairs. There are two major types of wheelchairs commonly found in hospitals and homes known as Manual Wheelchair and Electric powered wheelchair. In case of a manual wheelchair, the seated person moves the chair himself by turning the rear wheels of the chair. On the other hand, an electric powered wheelchair moves through a motor.

Let us look on both types of chairs:
Manual Wheelchairs:

Manual wheelchairs are more portable as compared to electric wheelchairs. They can be easily carried during travel. Manual wheelchairs come in various sizes, the weight of the wheelchair varies with the size. Their weight, however, is no more than 21-40 pounds. Lightweight designs are preferred by users as they are easier to push. Maintenance costs of manual wheelchairs is also negligible.

Manual Wheelchairs can be further divided into light duty and heavy duty wheelchairs.

Electrically powered Wheelchairs:

Electrically powered wheelchairs are more flexible in terms of seat, headrests, and headrests designs. The price range can vary largely from 3000$ to 30,000$. The low costs electric wheelchairs are actually made of cheap motor kits that are installed within Manual wheelchairs. High cost electric wheelchairs are durable and have better electronic systems. Some years ago, electrically powered wheelchairs were only limited to a few brands. But today, faster and lighter electric wheelchairs are produced by different manufacturers.

Electrically powered wheelchairs have different configurations, they can be either front wheel driven, mid wheel driven or rear wheel driven.


Just like all the other kinds of Safari, the desert safari is exploring the wilderness and enjoying what it has to offer. If you have ever been to Dubai, you surely have experienced the ride and cherished it to its full as this is pretty popular in the Middle East due to the abundance of deserts there.

Have a look at duck hunting hats:

For those of you who are new to it, may face some trouble and feel nauseatic.

But you can beat the feeling by following few rules, have a glance:


Your desert journey will have too many bumps due to heightened sand dunes. The usual curvy route can cause intense travel sickness which is why it is best to eat less and consume water about an hour before you jump into your vehicle. It can save you from the heavy nauseatic feeling.


You must be thinking to yourself that this is pointless and of no use but in deserts, temperature behaves abnormally.

It is hottest during the day, and as the sun sets, the atmosphere starts to cool down and get chillier. Pack a thin jacket or light shawl to wrap you up if you feel cold.


One thing that most people mistake on is considering camel and horse ride as equal. If you have pain in your joints, or legs, and you face no issues riding a horse, it DOES NOT mean you can do fine on camel ride as well.

So pack some extra painkillers with you. You will require them as camels are hard to ride due to the humpy body.
