ADVANTAGES OF A MANUAL AND ELECTRIC WHEELCHAIRS

Younger woman helping an elderly person using laptop computer for internet search. Young and pension age generations working together.

A wheelchair is an important device that gives the user a sense of independence to move about freely and improve mobility with or without a caregiver. Using a wheelchair does not hinder the daily activities despite the decreased mobility. In addition to carrying out your daily chores easily, this device has many social and mental health advantages.

Wheelchair Types

There are various kinds of models and brands of wheelchairs with differing specifications and advantages. However, this device generally comes in two types such as a manual wheelchair and a motorized wheelchair. A manual wheelchair comes as a self-propelled wheelchair which is manipulated by the user and the other being, a transit wheelchair which is pushed by the caregiver. A motorized wheelchair has a motor and rechargeable battery controlled by a joystick on the armrest, which requires very little force from the user and controlled and managed easily.

Although the correct wheelchair depends on the nature of the user’s disability or limited mobility and how it will be used, the advantages are numerous regardless of what type of wheelchair is chosen.

Ultralight portable wheelchair, Breezy Basix 2 folding wheelchair and Omega lite transit wheelchair are 3 popular manual wheelchairs and Titan Power Chair, Travel Lite folding power chair and Cobalt travel power wheelchair are some of fast-moving motorized wheelchairs available at all stores of Independent Living Specialists Australia wide.

Elevated Self-Reliance

The electric and manual wheelchairs assist the user to move around and engage in daily chores without any help. An electric wheelchair, especially, is able to increase self-reliance due to its easy maneuvering and capability of moving without tiring the user.

The manual wheelchair is also capable of providing extra resilience for the user and caregiver. A person with limited mobility may not be able to walk without help and a wheelchair is capable of decreasing the dangers and anxieties of falling at home or outdoors and assist to move about confidently.

Maneuverability

Wheelchairs have been manufactured especially to maneuver and adapt to small areas making it the best device to move about at home. There are much stronger wheelchairs manufactured for outdoor activities and usable on rough grounds such as hills and sidewalks.
