Standard Wheelchairs: When you need to get around town, using a standard wheelchair might be your best option. Standard wheelchairs are designed for everyday use and let most people get around their house or travel locally. The person sitting in the wheelchair will push the wheelchair on their own. These are typically some of the most affordable wheelchairs available, even though they can be improved with a variety of add-ons for comfort and safety.
Transport Wheelchairs:Transport wheelchairs are often the best way for caregivers to get patients to doctor’s visits, physical therapy sessions and other necessary appointments. Unlike standard wheelchairs, transport wheelchairs are designed to be pushed by another person rather than propelled by the patient. These wheelchairs are lightweight and easy to push. They also are designed to be easy to break down for storage, as well as having many features that help increase the comfort of the person being transported.
Lightweight Wheelchairs: Lightweight wheelchairs are often the solution for people who want more freedom when using their manual wheelchairs. These chairs are convenient solutions for individuals who travel frequently and want a wheelchair that will easily break down for storage. They’re perfect for putting in the trunk of a car or storing when taking a flight. Weighing up to 35 pounds, the light nature of these wheelchairs mean that they are easy for anyone to maneuver.
Ultra Light Wheelchairs: When having the lightest wheelchairs possible is the most important factor in your life, consider ultra light wheelchairs. At 12 to 27 pounds, they are the lightest wheelchairs available for general use today. You can choose between foldable or rigid ultra light wheelchairs. Foldable wheelchairs will have more moving parts than rigid wheelchairs, which makes them better for use on rough or uneven terrain. Rigid wheelchairs can be as light as possible.
Heavy Duty Wheelchairs: When patients weight more than 350 pounds, they need special bariatric wheelchairs to help support their weight. Heavy duty wheelchairs are designed to let people who weigh up to 700 pounds feel comfortable when using their chairs. Along with being wider and having more support, bariatric wheelchairs have many of the same features of standard wheelchairs and are designed to enhance comfort for users.
Sport Wheelchairs: Being in a wheelchair doesn’t mean that you can’t be active and participate in sports. Whether it means hitting the court for some basketball or tennis, or getting on the road to train for a marathon or triathlon, athletic people need sport wheelchairs to perform their best. Daily Care Inc. has sport wheelchairs for all types of athletes. These chairs are lightweight but durable and are designed for maximum speed and performance.
Tilt Wheelchairs: It’s easy for people to experience pain and discomfort when sitting in a wheelchair for long periods of time. Having all of their weight shifted onto a few pressure points can lead to aches and pains, along with the potential for bedsores. Comfort is important for people confined to wheelchairs, which is where tilt wheelchairs come in handy. These wheelchairs can be adjusted to find a comfortable position for a wheelchair user that shifts weight while they are sitting.
Pediatric Wheelchairs: Children who are in wheelchairs have special needs. Purchasing a standard, adult-sized manual wheelchair for them often won’t be comfortable or allow them to move with freedom. Special pediatric wheelchairs have the features kids need, including a smaller and lighter frame. Many of these models are have adjustable seats to grow as a child gets older so that a parent doesn’t need to replace the chair.
Reclining Wheelchairs: A manual reclining wheelchair is any chair that has a footrest or a backrest that can be placed into a reclining position. Reclining wheelchairs are an option for people who will be using their wheelchairs at night during activities such as watching TV or reading and who might fall asleep while still in their chair. They are also good choices for people whose physical limitations make it tough for them to sit upright for extended periods of time.
