When is a Manual Wheelchair the Best Choice?
If a cane or walker is not providing enough mobility, a manual wheelchair or lightweight wheelchair may be viable option to consider. Making a transition into a wheelchair to aid in your mobility can be overwhelming as there are lots of options available. Manual wheelchairs are ideal for people who:
- Have the necessary upper-body, arm, and hand strength to self-propel the wheels of the chair, and
- Have the balance necessary to sit upright in the wheelchair without relying on extensive back support.
