Power Soccer

Here at Aeroflow Healthcare we believe that being confined to a wheelchair does not mean that you have lost your independence.  Individuals who are no longer able to walk on their own can still live a life full of activities and can even participate in sports.  Power soccer is one of the fastest growing sports specifically designed to be played in a power wheelchair. Aeroflow Healthcare carries a wide range of manual wheelchairs and power wheelchairs designed to keep you on the move.

Power soccer is a competitive team sport created to be played by participants in power wheelchairs.  Participating in a power soccer league will allow you to build teamwork, have competition and have a great recreational pastime. Individuals with disabilities ranging from cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis and many others can participate in this exciting sport. Having to use a mobility device does not mean that you can no longer participate in sports.  While it may not be exactly the same game of soccer you have played before, it is an adrenaline rush that will keep you coming back for more games.

Power soccer has been played all across the world since the 1970s.  The first American Champions Cup was played in 2009.  The game is played with an oversized 13 inch soccer ball that is pushed by a foot guard on your power chair.  All participants are required to use a power chair and the maximum speed is 6.2 mph. Players are also required to add on a seat belt and a foot guard to their chair. The game is played on a basketball court with two teams of four players.

Investing in a great power chair like the Jazzy Elite ES will ensure that you are mobile around the house and the court in a dependable chair.  Using a battery charger will keep you fully charged but will never overcharge your battery.

With Aeroflow Healthcare, your mobility equipment can be purchased as self pay or you can qualify through insurance for manual wheelchairs, scooters, and power wheelchairs. Our friendly and knowledgeable customer service representatives will help you find the right equipment to assist with your mobility needs.  Contact us today by phone, email or chat to get started in selecting your new power wheelchair.  With your new power chair you will have your independence again and can even participate in a game of power soccer.
