Here’s a handy guide of things to know before you buy.
Type of Wheelchair
Sometimes a large range of options to choose from can be overwhelming. Before going on the hunt for the ideal wheelchair it’s useful to have an idea in your head of the type of wheelchair you’re looking for.
There are three main types of wheelchairs for sale:
Transit: These mobility wheelchairs have small wheels on the front and back of the chair meaning that the wheelchair user doesn’t push themselves and instead an attendant will push the user.
Self-Propel: These are chairs with large wheels at the rear allowing the wheelchair user to push themselves independently, without assistance.
Prescription: These mobility wheelchairs are usually for users with more complex needs. They will always need an attendant to control the chair and have a basic chair with the optional extras which allow you to build the chair to your specifications. With these wheelchairs, you have the option to fit headrests and additional supports to the chair.
How Much Will You Use It?
Wheelchairs vary greatly in terms of price and Mobility Solutions have wheelchairs for sale to suit every budget. One mistake people make is choosing a less expensive but less supportive wheelchair. These are fine if the wheelchair is only getting occasional use. Consider though that regularly sitting in an unsupportive wheelchair can quickly become uncomfortable. Generally, if the wheelchair is going to be used regularly, it’s worth paying that little bit extra for something more comfortable and hard wearing.
