  • Then a 75% alcohol based disinfectant is sprayed throughout the equipment especially at the point of contact like the wheelchair arm rest and wheel rims or the Knee walker handles and seats. We let the disinfectant sit for 15 minutes  before the wipe down.
  • The mobility equipment seats are cleaned with brushes to make sure all dust, lint, hair and debris are taken out and then sprayed on with the 75% alcohol based disinfectant.

Adjustable height and comfortable

As someone recovering from ankle surgery, I recently rented a "Knee Scooter" and it exceeded my expectations. The scooter is incredibly sturdy and provides excellent support, making mobility much easier during my recovery. Its adjustable height and comfortable knee pad ensured a custom fit and smooth ride. The scooter is reasonably light and easy to maneuver, even in tight spaces. The foldable design is convenient for transport and storage. I highly recommend this knee scooter rental for anyone needing reliable, comfortable mobility assistance.

The environment you'll use it in matters too. Will it be your primary mode of transportation or for occasional use at home?

Consulting a healthcare professional or occupational therapist is crucial. They can assess your needs and recommend the most suitable
wheelchair
type and features
to ensure comfort, safety, and independence.

Since all our wheelchairs fold, they make for easy transport and will fit in the trunk of any car.
Smaller cars might require removing wheels or folding seats.

Can I travel on airplanes with a wheelchair?

Absolutely! Airlines are well-equipped to accommodate travellers with wheelchairs.

However, there are regulations in place to ensure safety during boarding, storage, and disembarking.

Notify the airline in advance about your wheelchair and check their specific procedures for checking it in or storing it onboard.

 What are thebenefits of using a wheelchair?

Wheelchairs are more than just mobility aids - they're tools for independence! Here
are a few benefits:

i. They allow users to participate in daily activities, get to work or school, and explore their surroundings.
ii. Wheelchairs can significantly improve quality of life by increasing mobility and fostering a sense of freedom and self-reliance.
iii. They are conveniently lightweight, at only 16 lbs, and fold snug for easy transport via land, air, sea and rail.
iv. Your safety is rest assured as they have small wheels and are not self-propelling, so a caregiver will be needed to push the chair.

 How do I properly care for my wheelchair?

Regular maintenance is key to keeping your wheelchair rolling smoothly and safely.

This includes routine cleaning to remove dirt and debris, checking tire pressure and inflation, and making adjustments to brakes and other components as needed.

Always refer to the manufacturer's instructions for specific care guidelines and recommended service intervals.

How do I safely get in and out of my wheelchair?

Safe transfers are essential to prevent injuries.

There are proper techniques for transferring from a wheelchair to a bed, chair, or other surfaces. These techniques minimize strain and risk of falls.

Here are a few general and safe tips of getting in and out of a wheelchair:

• Lock the brakes: Before transferring, always lock the wheelchair's brakes to prevent it from rolling.

• Clear the area: Make sure there are no obstacles in the way that could cause you to trip or lose balance.

• Swing away footrests (if applicable): If your wheelchair has removable footrests, swing them out of the way to avoid tripping.

• Ask for help if needed: Don't hesitate to ask for assistance from a caregiver or bystander if you need help transferring.

Transferring from a Bed or Chair to a Wheelchair:

• Scoot to the edge: Sit on the edge of the bed or chair you're transferring from.

• Lean forward: Shift your weight forward slightly for better leverage.

• Use the armrests: Push yourself up using the armrests of the wheelchair or the chair you're transferring from.

Transferring from a Wheelchair to a Bed or Chair:

• Reverse the steps: Follow the steps above in reverse order.

• Slide or scoot: Once you're seated on the edge of the bed or chair, carefully slide or scoot back until you're fully settled.

Additional Considerations:

• Strength and Balance: The safest method for transferring depends on your individual strength and balance.

• Transfer Techniques: There are various transfer techniques, such as the sliding transfer or the pivot transfer. If you're unsure which is best for you, consult with an occupational therapist.

• Transfer Aids: Transfer aids like transfer boards or gait belts can provide additional support and stability during transfers.

What are some wheelchair-accessible activities?

The world is open to you! From exploring new places and travelling to pursuing hobbies and interests, there are endless possibilities for wheelchair users.

Many historical sites, museums, and parks are now wheelchair accessible, allowing you to experience the world firsthand.

You can also participate in various adapted sports and recreational activities designed for wheelchair use.

How can I improve my posture while using a wheelchair?

Maintaining good posture while using a wheelchair promotes comfort, prevents pain, and reduces the risk of pressure sores.

Seating pressure relief cushions can help distribute weight evenly and minimize pressure points.

Proper positioning with backrests and headrests that offer good support is also crucial.

Talk to a healthcare professional for advice on finding the right seating system and ensuring proper posture while using your wheelchair.

What are some common wheelchair repairs?

Just like any other piece of equipment, wheelchairs may require occasional repairs.

Adjusting brakes to ensure proper stopping power might be needed from time to time.

For more complex issues like joystick malfunctions or electrical problems, seeking help from a qualified technician is recommended.

Where can I find a wheel chair repair shop?

Keeping your wheelchair in top condition is important.

Look for qualified technicians who specialize in wheelchair repair.

Many areas have dedicated wheelchair repair shops. You can also locate authorized parts suppliers in your area.
