  • Wheel Chairs

    When it comes to losing your mobility, a wheelchair is one of the most important things that you can have access to in the later stages of decline. Wheelchairs make mobility much easier. Also, with the passing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), almost all public spaces are wheelchair-accessible, providing ramps and doorways large enough to fit mobility equipment through it. Below, you’ll find information about the types of wheelchairs that we carry and what they’re used for.

  • Types of Wheelchairs

    • Manual Wheelchair – This type of chair is used for those that have lost the use of their legs, but they can use their arms to propel them forward with the oversized wheels.
    • Electric Wheelchair – This type of wheelchair is motorized and controlled by a joystick. This type of chair is used mainly for the elderly and those with disabilities that affect the use of upper and lower extremities.
    • Mobility Scooter –These are cheaper than power wheelchairs and more closely resemble a scooter with a single seat that the user straddles and handlebars.
    • Transport Wheelchair – This is similar to a manual wheelchair, but it has smaller wheels and is usually used by a nurse or caretaker to transport someone that doesn’t have the use of their arms or legs.
    • Bariatric Wheelchairs– These are wheelchairs that are extra wide and specifically designed to handle a high weight capacity.
