Choosing the Wheelchair for You
Posted on July 07 2011
A wheelchair is simply a tool to help people move around, but how do you choose the one that's right for you? Could making the wrong choice cost you more money than necessary?Not only are there different kinds of wheelchairs, but you must consider the weight of the chair, the seat size, and the armrests, leg rests and footrests. Plus, there are many items that can be purchased that can make wheelchair mobility easier and more comfortable, including reclining backrests, oxygen tank holders, lap trays, urinary drainage bag holders, and even wheelchair cushions.
