    To power the wheel chair, you may need a PMDC motor, since the wheel chair is going to be powered by DC.

    If you are planning to add some kind of joystick-controlled steering system in your wheel chair, then you may also need to add a servo motor, to serve as a steering motor.

    12v High torque motor with planetary gear box and arrangement for mounting screws. generally we can see them in garages automobile/car window opening motors. we used 12v 7Ah battery for operation . motor controlled using Mosfet driver for High current operation. we programmed all these using PIC uC. the attached image is similar to our motor but differs in some technical specs..
