How to choose a Standard Wheelchair?

Looking for a standard weight manual wheelchair? With a plethora of options available in the market selecting the right wheelchair becomes a complex task. Here are some key points that you can consider so that you get the perfect chair for yourself or your loved one.

  • The decision to choose a standard wheelchair basically depends on who will be controlling the chair, the immediate needs of the user, the lifestyle and activities, the span of time the user is going to spend in the chair and their medical condition.
  • Depending upon the needs and level of mobility the user can choose to have a self-propelled wheelchair (for users with a good upper body strength) or an attendant propelled wheelchair (for users with low body strength and dexterity).
  • If the standard wheelchair is being used in a hospital, clinic or long term care facility flip up arm rests and flip away foot supports are desired for easy transfers.
