Standard wheelchairs may be the right choice when you need to be transported or to be able to self-propell and not necessarily spend all day in your chair. There are a large range of makes and models to choose from. They are generally high quality, durable products that are well designed for everyday use.
Clients with more restrictive mobility may benefit from a prescriptive wheelchair versus a standard wheelchair. Prescriptive chairs are highly configurable, and therefore more customizable for an individual’s personal use. Prescriptive wheelchairs are designed to take into account back support, posture and seating requirements. These factors make prescriptive chairs an ideal solution for more complex mobility issues.
Wheelchairs specifically designed for children reflect their different requirements, and as a result, they tend to be sleek, colourful, lightweight, durable and adjustable. This means that you don’t need to worry about sudden growth spurts, and you can trust that the wheelchair you’re buying is one that suits the child in your care.
