Default electric wheelchair

I sure could use your advice. We do not have a ALS Society or a MDA clinic nearby us. Therefore, we don't have anywhere to borrow equipment. Social Security, here in the good 'ol' USA, only helps pay for an electric wheelchair every five years. That means we need to make as wise a decision on the type of chair as possible. We have been using a borrowed small power chair but it is easy to tell that it is not going to be too useful much longer. I think we are going to need one that reclines some. I know we need one that is easy to get in and out of. The right leg is already completely gone and the left one is getting weak. Any advice sure would be appreciated.

Thanks,
