Why Choose a Manual Wheelchair?
If you’re someone who is physically able to propel yourself forward without exerting a lot of effort, a manual wheelchair could be a great fit for you. Remember that speed is key when using a manual wheelchair, like when you have to travel through a crosswalk in a limited amount of time, for example. Those who suffer from a condition that causes frequent fatigue might tire quickly when using a manual wheelchair. For this reason, you should also keep in mind where and how often you’ll use your manual wheelchair. Remember that not all terrain is smooth and level so you may need to put extra effort in some situations, such as maneuvering curbs and other obstacles. A key benefit of manual wheelchairs is that they’re usually very easy to transport from place to place. You don’t need a special vehicle to transport a manual wheelchair that folds up and becomes portable.
