Wheelchairs and Powerchairs
With so many variations of wheelchairs and powerchairs available, it can be hard to identify which product is most suitable for yourself or your loved one. Thankfully, everyone at A6 Mobility Shop in Stockport is knowledgeable about both traditional wheelchairs and powered alternatives to offer advice.
With wheelchairs, there are several considerations. The most obvious consideration is self-propelled vs transit, i.e. large wheels for the user to move themselves or small wheels to be pushed. Another key consideration is the weight of the wheelchair. Is it something that needs to be regularly lifted into a car boot? If so, a lighter option would be preferable. Lastly, the quality of the wheelchair. Cheaply made wheelchairs tend not to last as long as a well-made option. Better quality chairs are often more comfortable and spare parts and usually more readily available if repairs are needed.
Powerchairs vary drastically in price. This is mostly affected by the functionality of the powerchair. For example, top end powerchairs have longer travel ranges and features such as seat elevation or an automatic folding mechanism for storage and transport.
