Wheelchair advisor

On wheelchair is always needed when a person can not go out of his own power. This may be necessary after an accident that limits walking ability, but chronic diseases may also be the cause of the problem. Often, older people also need one wheelchair , So these walkers are used primarily in hospitals and nursing homes, but also for private use, there are numerous products.

What different models are there with wheelchairs?

Basically, the various models of wheelchairs can be distinguished according to their comfort and the associated effort required for locomotion.

In hospitals and other inpatient facilities mostly standard wheelchairs are used. These are rather heavy and have only the most important functions – so they are not suitable for permanent operation. Due to the high weight, these models can usually not be operated by the patient themselves, which is why the patient has to be pushed by a caregiver or a relative. These products offer only limited customization and the least comfort of the models available in the market.

In contrast, lightweight wheelchairs are, as the name suggests, much lighter and thus easier to handle. The patient on this walkeris dependent, the model can move itself in part and is therefore much less limited. However, the effort required for independent movement by the patient is still relatively high here, which also makes long-term use strenuous.

A modern alternative is the so-called active wheelchairs. These are characterized by a particularly individual adaptation to the patient: the seat height can be perfectly adjusted here, for example. Thus, the force required for independent movement is minimal, giving the patient extra freedom of movement. Although these products are usually very expensive, they are worthwhile for long-term use.

In patients suffering from multiple severe disability, storage wheelchairs are used. These have a separate head section, which maintains the patient’s head and thus allows a degree of freedom of movement for non-mobile persons.

drive types

Many of these wheelchairs can be used over a long distance only by the walker is pushed by a second person. This means less effort for the patient, but also provides dependency – an absolutely self-determined locomotion is only possible over short distances.

Lightweight and manoeuvrable wheelchairs can also be operated by the patient himself by turning the wheels with both hands or – for example during amputations – with one hand. Many wheelchair users feel more comfortable in these models because it is difficult for patients, especially after sudden accidents, to rely on the help of another person to such an extent. This type of drive therefore ensures significantly more self-determination.

In severely disabled people, electric wheelchairs are often used, which the patient can operate himself. These models are usually very expensive, but offer the wheelchair user for a very high level of comfort and also ensure that it is not so much dependent on outside help.

The cost of one wheelchair can reach up to 7,000 euros for modern and complex models. Health insurance companies often only take on standard or lightweight wheelchairs or subsidize the purchase only with a fraction of the purchase price.
