Merits Health P301 Gemini Rear Wheel Drive Electric Wheelchair

looking for a powerful rear-wheel drive power chair that offers a high weight capacity and long battery range?  Well, you have found it!  The Merits P301 Gemini is one of the more high-performing power wheelchairs on the market today.  There are many benefits and features that sets the chair apart that we will get into in a moment.


This chair comes standard with a 450 lbs weight capacity, which is one of the highest weight capacities you will find on the market.  You can also get the Gemini with an elevating seat , which can raise and lower the seat up to 10″.  Important to note, if you select the elevating seat option, the weight capacity reduces to 350 lbs.  The P301 standard seat size is 22″ x 22″ that does swivel to the side, tilt back, and fold down.

This makes it convenient when you are sitting a table, want to lean back to take a nap, or need to transport or store the unit in a compact area.  Having a swivel seat is rare with a power chair that has this high of a weight capacity.  The armrests do flip up and can be adjusted outward to give the user more of a seating area as well.


This power chair operates off of two 50AH batteries.  They provide enough power to give the user a 20 mile battery range per charge.  Depending on the weight of the user and type of terrain you are on this can be slightly less.  To charge the unit, you simply plug the charger into the joystick, so you don’t have to crouch down or bend over to plug it in.  Once the chair is fully charged, the charger shuts off, so there is no need to worry about over charging the unit as well.

Most power wheelchairs offer a top speed of 4 mph.  However, the Gemini has a top speed of 5 mph, so it is slightly faster than what you would normally expect in a power chair of this size.


If you are looking for a power chair with a 450 lbs weight capability, adjustable arms, swing away joystick, 22″ x 22″ standard seat, a seat belt, flip up armrests, and flip up foot plate, this is a very nice power chair that we highly recommend.  It is perfect for indoor and outdoor use, so using it in different environments is not problem.

In addition to that, this is designed and made by Merits Health Products, one of the premiere brands in the mobility industry with over 30 years of experience.
