Wheelchairs for the elderly and persons with limited mobility
Getting around can be challenging with mobility problems, but wheelchairs make it easier to move about. HonestMed carries manual wheelchairs and transport wheelchairs. Deciding which type of chair is best, depends on how you will be using it. A manual wheelchair is a great option for users who can navigate themselves, while a transport wheelchair is designed to be pushed by another person. You may notice that manual wheelchairs have two large wheels in the rear and two small ones in the front. The large wheels help the user push the chair forward while the fronts aid with turning. In contrast, a transport chair typically only has small wheels.
Some additional things to keep in mind when shopping for a wheelchair are colors, frame material, upholstery options, seat width and depth, and ground clearance. If you are looking for a heavy-duty chair that can hold a greater capacity of weight than a standard, we recommend you browse the bariatric options. These wheelchairs have a larger seating area, a durable frame, and comfortable upholstery. Whether you need a wheelchair as a temporary solution after surgery or an injury, or a long-term solution that meets your comfort and mobility requirements, HonestMed has options that will keep your costs down.
