What Are The Types of Wheelchairs
Just as no two leaves are alike in the world, everyone is unique. Well, everyone's needs are different, even if these needs have something in common. Wheelchairs meet the travel needs of most disabled people or mobility limited people. But everyone's situation is different. Although wheelchairs can meet their travel needs, it is difficult to meet some needs such as climbing stairs and going to the bathroom. At this time they may need some wheelchairs with special functions to meet their needs. Therefore, there are many wheelchairs on the market that can meet different needs. There are so many types of wheelchairs that you can't tell them apart. Today, I will help you distinguish the types of wheelchairs from the two aspects of power plant and function.
According to the power device of the wheelchair, we divide the wheelchair into electric wheelchair and manual wheelchair.
1. Manual wheelchair: As the name suggests, a manual wheelchair is a wheelchair that pushes the wheelchair forward by manpower. This is also the most common type of wheelchair.
