Electric Hockey is a sport similar to Powerhockey except the sport uses their own specialized chairs called the Hockey Sport Chair instead of a regular power wheelchair. These chairs are lower to the floor, and athletes requires upper body strength and good balance to play the sport. Electric Hockey also differs that the game is played three on three with one or two substitutes on the bench per team, and two 15 minute halves are played. The sport is played by Scandinavian club teams from Sweden, Denmark, and Norway.
