How to choose a standard wheelchair?

The selection depends upon many factors like who will operate the wheelchair, the amount of time the chair will be in use daily, lifestyle activities, immediate needs, the situation and condition of the patients. For those who need both self-propulsion and assistance simultaneously can opt for a dual axle position that allows repositioning of the large rear wheels with casters for both adult and hemi seat-to-floor heights like the Tracer EX2 Wheelchair which also features heavy-duty inner liners to prevent seat and back from stretching.


For those who require sitting on desks or tables may choose wheelchairs with adjustable desk length arm that also flip out of the way for easy transfers as with the Nova Medical Standard Manual Wheelchair. Some patients may require a heavy duty wheelchair with a sturdy frame to accommodate their weight with safety. The Invacare Tracer SX5 Wheelchair is the ideal chair with long-lasting heavy-duty triple chrome-plated carbon steel frame.
