Buy A Wheelchair

 

When it comes to mobility aids, wheelchairs are a popular option for those who have difficulty walking or standing for long periods. Wheelchairs can help people with mobility issues maintain their independence and participate in daily activities. However, buying a wheelchair can be tricky and doesn't have to be expensive. You can actually buy a wheelchair quite cheap, especially now they are readily available online. We've tried to simplify which wheelchairs to buy below. Answering questions such as what are the different types of wheelchairs and where should I buy a wheelchair?

 

What Are The Different Types Of Wheelchairs?

 

Manual Wheelchairs

Manual wheelchairs are propelled by the user or a caregiver pushing the wheelchair's rear wheels. They are lightweight and easy to maneuver, making them ideal for everyday use. Manual wheelchairs are available in different sizes and styles, and some can be customized to meet specific needs. Day's Medical offer some of our most popular self-propelled wheelchairs.

 

Self Propelled Wheelchairs

A self propelled wheelchair is a type of manual wheelchair that is propelled by the user through the use of hand rims attached to the rear wheels. This allows the user to independently move around and control their own mobility. They are typically lighter in weight than powered wheelchairs, making them easier to transport and maneuver in tight spaces. Self propelled wheelchairs are available in a range of styles and designs to suit different needs and preferences, including folding frames for easy storage, adjustable seat heights and footrests, and various seating options for comfort and support. Roma Medical offer some great self propelled wheelchair options.

 

Power Wheelchairs

Power wheelchairs are electrically powered and operated by a joystick or other control mechanism. They are ideal for people with mobility issues who have difficulty propelling a manual wheelchair. Power wheelchairs are available in different styles and sizes, and some can be customized to meet specific needs.

 

Transit Wheelchairs

Transport or transit wheelchairs are designed for short-term use and are lightweight and easy to transport. They are pushed by a caregiver and do not have the same maneuverability as manual or power wheelchairs. Transport wheelchairs are ideal for people who need temporary assistance with mobility. Karma Mobility offer some of the best transport wheelchairs on the market.

 

What To Consider When Buying A Wheelchair

 

User's Needs

When buying a wheelchair, it's important to consider the user's needs. Factors such as the user's weight, height, and level of mobility should be taken into account. Some wheelchairs are designed for specific needs, such as those with reclining backs or tilt-in-space features.

 

Comfort and Support

Comfort and support are important considerations when buying a wheelchair. The seat should be comfortable and provide adequate support for the user's back and hips. The wheelchair's footrests should also be adjustable to ensure proper support and positioning.

 

Portability and Storage

Portability and storage are important factors to consider if the wheelchair will be transported frequently. Some wheelchairs are lightweight and easy to fold, making them ideal for travel or storage. Others may be more difficult to transport due to their size or weight.

 

Terrain

The terrain on which the wheelchair will be used is also an important consideration. Some wheelchairs are designed for indoor use and may not be suitable for outdoor terrain. Other wheelchairs may be designed specifically for outdoor use and have features such as larger wheels and better suspension. When considering which wheelchair to buy this is one of the most important considerations, if a wheelchair isn't usable in your environment, mobility will be seriously affected.

 

Price

Wheelchairs can vary in price, depending on their features and level of customization. It's important to set a budget and look for a wheelchair that meets the user's needs while staying within the budget. Cheap wheelchairs are becoming more common, however, you still need to consider if these meet all your needs. It is not worth buying a cheap wheelchair if it doesn't aid your mobility very well.

 

Where To Buy A Wheelchair?

Many people are unsure where to start when it comes to buying a wheelchair. This is where we can help. Making a big decision, such as which wheelchair to buy, you shouldn't be alone. Our team would be more than happy to assist you with your decision.

There are also several advantages to buying a wheelchair online, compared to visiting a local mobility store. These include the wheelchair being delivered directly to your home, cheaper pricing and a much larger choice.


How Much To Buy A Wheelchair?

One questions we often get asked is how much it is to buy a wheelchair. There's no straightforward answer here as prices range from around £100 to several thousand pounds. This is because they all have different features and are made for different purposes. So when asking how much to buy a wheelchair, consider the type of wheelchair you are looking for, your budget and how much use it will get.

 

I Don't Know Which Wheelchairs To Buy?

If you have considered the above factors and you're still uncertain as to which wheelchairs to buy, we'd be more than happy to help. Simply drop us an email or give us a call.

Wheelchairs can help people with mobility issues maintain their independence and participate in daily activities. However, buying a wheelchair can be tricky and doesn't have to be expensive.

What Are The Different Types Of Wheelchairs?

 

Manual Wheelchairs

Manual wheelchairs are propelled by the user or a caregiver pushing the wheelchair's rear wheels. They are lightweight and easy to maneuver, making them ideal for everyday use. Manual wheelchairs are available in different sizes and styles, and some can be customized to meet specific needs. Day's Medical offer some of our most popular self-propelled wheelchairs.

A self propelled wheelchair is a type of manual wheelchair that is propelled by the user through the use of hand rims attached to the rear wheels. This allows the user to independently move around and control their own mobility. They are typically lighter in weight than powered wheelchairs, making them easier to transport and maneuver in tight spaces. Self propelled wheelchairs are available in a range of styles and designs to suit different needs and preferences, including folding frames for easy storage, adjustable seat heights and footrests, and various seating options for comfort and support. Roma Medical offer some great self propelled wheelchair options.

 

Power Wheelchairs

Power wheelchairs are electrically powered and operated by a joystick or other control mechanism. They are ideal for people with mobility issues who have difficulty propelling a manual wheelchair. Power wheelchairs are available in different styles and sizes, and some can be customized to meet specific needs.

 

Transit Wheelchairs

Transport or transit wheelchairs are designed for short-term use and are lightweight and easy to transport. They are pushed by a caregiver and do not have the same maneuverability as manual or power wheelchairs. Transport wheelchairs are ideal for people who need temporary assistance with mobility. Karma Mobility offer some of the best transport wheelchairs on the market.

 

What To Consider When Buying A Wheelchair

 

User's Needs

When buying a wheelchair, it's important to consider the user's needs. Factors such as the user's weight, height, and level of mobility should be taken into account. Some wheelchairs are designed for specific needs, such as those with reclining backs or tilt-in-space features.

 

Comfort and Support

Comfort and support are important considerations when buying a wheelchair. The seat should be comfortable and provide adequate support for the user's back and hips. The wheelchair's footrests should also be adjustable to ensure proper support and positioning.

 

Portability and Storage

Portability and storage are important factors to consider if the wheelchair will be transported frequently. Some wheelchairs are lightweight and easy to fold, making them ideal for travel or storage. Others may be more difficult to transport due to their size or weight.

 

Terrain

The terrain on which the wheelchair will be used is also an important consideration. Some wheelchairs are designed for indoor use and may not be suitable for outdoor terrain. Other wheelchairs may be designed specifically for outdoor use and have features such as larger wheels and better suspension. When considering which wheelchair to buy this is one of the most important considerations, if a wheelchair isn't usable in your environment, mobility will be seriously affected.

 

Price

Wheelchairs can vary in price, depending on their features and level of customization. It's important to set a budget and look for a wheelchair that meets the user's needs while staying within the budget. Cheap wheelchairs are becoming more common, however, you still need to consider if these meet all your needs. It is not worth buying a cheap wheelchair if it doesn't aid your mobility very well.
