"If you won't use a mechno-limb, this powerchair will have to do."
"You'll not be making me into a half-droid, that's for sure. This little buggy will do fine."
Owen and Cliegg Lars

A power chair was a one-being, repulsorlift-powered floating chair also known as a hover chair or repulsor chair.

Characteristics

Power chairs used basic antigravity technology to lift the chair above the ground, and were controlled via a panel on the armrest. These chairs were commonly used by disabled, wounded or elderly beings.

History

Yoda using a hover chair.

Aarrba the Hutt used a hover chair around 5,000 BBY as did most Hutts throughout galactic history, due to their enormous weight on most humanoid-compatible planets.

Jedi Masters Yoda and Vandar Tokare were known to use hoverchairs during their later years, to keep pace with their humanoid companions.

Cliegg Lars was forced to use a power chair after losing his leg during an encounter with Tusken Raiders, and both Maximilian Veers and Leia Organa Solo used power chairs after sustaining injuries to their lower bodies—the former after Derek Klivian crashed his snowspeeder into Veers's AT-AT walker, the latter after an encounter with Tsavong Lah on Duro.

Bertroff Hissa used a hoverchair after losing his arms and legs, though at this point he had been given prosthetic replacements.
