Considerations when renting a wheelchair

Those who need to rent or lease wheelchairs should first consider whether they want to choose a power wheelchair or a manual wheelchair. They will then need to check out the design of the chair, the padding, and any special features that it might offer. It's also important to consider the size of the chair to make sure that it will work well in their particular environment.

Features of wheelchairs

Wheelchairs, even though they are from different manufacturers, will have many of the same features. They have high quality, durable wheels, as well as grips and padding for the seat area. Different companies may have different types of grips and padding, which can alter the comfort level of the device, so it is important to know what you are choosing.

How wheelchairs work

A manual wheelchair works via manual power. The power could come from the person who is sitting in and using the wheelchair. He or she will push on the wheels to make the chair go forward. They can turn by pushing and rolling only one wheel at a time. In other cases, the power may come from a caretaker who is pushing the chair from behind. Manual wheelchairs tend to be very easy to maintain. Power wheelchairs receive their power from a motor and a battery, and the user can control the wheelchair's movement via a control system on the arm of the chair.

About wheelchairs

Many different types of wheelchairs are available for patients who have mobility problems, who are disabled, and who are recovering from injuries or surgeries, but manual wheelchairs are still very popular. They tend to be less expensive, and they are a great solution for many patients who have the strength to provide manual power to get around. A number of different styles of wheelchair are available, including lightweight models, ergonomic models, models specifically for transportation, pediatric wheelchairs, and bariatric wheelchairs. Sports wheelchairs are those designed for playing sports, such as wheelchair basketball.
