    Wheelchairs

    What should you look out for when choosing wheelchairs?

    1. Weight of wheelchair  Lightweight aluminum or steel wheelchair  

      • A lighter aluminum wheelchair will be easier to bring around than a heavier steel wheelchair 

    2. Wheelchair or Pushchair  

      • You will require wheelchairs with big wheels if you can wheel yourself around 
      • A pushchair, which has small wheels, is lighter and more suitable if there is someone to push you around  

    3. Arm-rests and foot-rests that are fixed or can be removed 

      • Wheelchairs parts that can be removed allow you to push the arm-rest and foot-rest to the side for an easier transfer from the wheelchair to a normal chair or bed.  

    4. Width of wheelchair  

      • The wider the wheelchair, the harder it is to push it through narrow spaces like doorways. 
      • Seat that is too wide for you may lead to bad posture. 

    5. Cost of wheelchairs 

    Notes on Safety and Handling

    • Remember to lock the wheels before getting out or into the wheelchair 
    • Lift up the foot-rests before getting off the wheelchair
