Wheelchairs are one of the oldest mobility aids in the world. The basic structure of a wheelchair is the same even today, but technology has lent a helping hand in creating far more superior devices than a simple chair attached to wheels.
There are two major types of wheelchairs, manual and power, and each has pros and cons. We'll look at both to help you decide which is best for your needs.
Manual wheelchairs are the most common in the world. Their cost-effectiveness has also allowed those in third-world countries to adopt their use widely. They run on physical power from the user or someone else pushing from behind.
Power wheelchairs run on electric power via batteries and are more powerful than manual wheelchairs.
They are propelled using a toggle on either of the handles. The different features of a power wheelchair include speed control, turning, seat height, and reclining angle, all with the push of a button.
|Manual Wheelchairs||Power Wheelchairs|
|Lower up front and maintenance costs||Perfect for people with low upper body strength|
|Lightweight and easily transported||Quiet motor|
|Helps maintain upper body strength||Better option for long-term use|
|Requires less maintenance||More comfortable|
