How to Select Medical Wheelchairs?

Medical wheelchairs as the most common mobility aids play important roles in the daily lives of the elderly and handicapped persons. Medical wheelchairs have strong differences in how they feel, how they fit, how they respond and what they enable us to do. Because people, their abilities and their needs are so different there are many possible combinations between people and mobility equipment. Figuring out which kind of wheelchair or seating system is best for each person is very important and challenging.

The wheels of the chair allow the caregiver to transfer the patient in and out of the tub or shower with less effort. Most of these wheelchairs have cut-out commode opening on the seat so that it can be also used over the toilet. Therefore, some of them are also called All in One models.
