Question by Bernard T: On electric power chairs are there any with an overall width of 23 inches or less ?
Due too bathroom doors of 24 inches in width I need a Power Chair less than 23 inches in total width, the chair is for indoor use only. I am looking for examples of chairs that can be used.

The problem here is that chairs, whether power or manual, should be chosen to fit the user, not the door. If the user is extremely slim, then you should have no difficulty in finding a power chair to fit.

If the user is permanently in a chair, it should be chosen in conjunction with either a Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist, not just because it feels comfortable or fits through a particular door.
