Wheelchairs can make it possible for people with limited mobility to live life to the fullest. Whether you are shopping for yourself or for a loved one, CVS can help you find the right wheelchair for home use and outings. Our online selection of wheelchairs includes a wide range of models that are competitively priced and available for convenient shipping to your home.
Best Wheelchair To Buy
To find the right wheelchair, consider how it will be used. Conventional self-propelled wheelchairs with large back wheels are ideal for daily independent use. Sports wheelchairs increase agility and speed for competitive and recreational sports and other activities. For travel, lightweight folding wheelchairs that can be easily stowed in a trunk or on a plane or train are a convenient solution.
The size of a wheelchair is important for user comfort and safety. Wheelchairs are available in a wide range of seat widths and many models have adjustable footrests that can be modified to suit users' needs. Each chair has a maximum weight rating listed along with its dimensions on its product page. Individuals who require extra support or room can consider bariatric wheelchairs.
If you need advice regarding which wheelchair is right for you or your loved one, consult a medical professional. A doctor can give you guidelines to help you find the best wheelchair online.
How To Choose A Wheelchair:
When it comes to choosing the right wheelchair, consider a couple of things: who it is for and what they will be needing it for. There are many different types of wheelchairs to choose from, so don't hesitate to go over all your options before buying.
A self-propelling wheelchair with large back wheels is probably the best choice for normal independent use. Sports wheelchairs are designed with the intention to increase mobility and speed so you can enjoy recreational activities. If you plan on traveling, lighter-weight wheelchairs are also made for easy travel.
How to Use a Wheelchair
Most wheelchairs are pretty straightforward when it comes to how to use them properly. Once you are situated correctly in your chair, most of the time all you need to do is place your hands on the back wheels and slowly begin to turn them. As you get moving, the action will become effortless. Make sure you are sitting comfortably in your chair and that nothing is around you that could possibly trap your wheels, making it so you can't move the correct way you need to. It's a good idea to have someone around you to help at first as you are getting used to using one.
