There are a number of wheelchair stores throughout the world, and each of them has its own set of inventory that you can look through. They offer all sorts of wheelchairs, from manual types that you can use around the house or to get someone in and out of a vehicle, to electric wheelchairs that you can use on your own to scoot around almost anywhere. You can, often times, find used wheelchair vans in conjunction with these as well.
Many wheelchair stores offer other accessories that can make your life easier as well. Some of them offer crutches and braces, in case you need them for one reason or another. Others may offer other mobility devices, like chair lifts. Depending on the company, some of them may offer the lifts that help get electric wheelchairs into vans. Often, wheelchair stores will do whatever they can to make sure that you and/or your loved ones are able to be as mobile as possible without a lot of hassle. Many of them also offer payment plans or they will work with your insurance to make sure that your mobility devices are affordable.
There are a few different criteria that you need to consider when choosing a wheelchair. First, do you want an electric one or a manual one? Manual ones are more appropriate for temporary purposes, but if you’re thinking that it’s going to be a long-term thing, it’s better to consider an electric one. The store you are working with will also make sure that you fit into your wheelchair correctly, so that your use is as comfortable as possible. Other factors could include color, speeds, or types of wheels (weather, etc). Talk to one of the experts at your local store for more information about choosing a wheelchair.
