When someone is wheelchair-bound and wants the assistance of a caregiver or loved one, these individuals have choices. Manual mobility devices allow helpers to stay connected with the patient, maintaining the patient's mobility and safety.
Check out our top picks for the best manual mobility devices:
-Adaptive Wheelchair Tricycle
Manual wheelchairs keep individuals mobile even if it's limited so they still possess their sense of independence.
If a patient needs help getting out of a bed with the help of a caregiver, the wheelchair can be maneuvered as close to the bed as possible. The aide can lock the chair in place as the caregiver holds the patient for a smooth transition from bed to the wheelchair.
A Tilt-In-Space wheelchair supports individuals who might have a neuromuscular disease such as Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS) or multiple sclerosis (MS). The wheelchair has the ability to help them by tilting the chair up to 60 degrees.
Throughout the day, a patient who wants to prevent discomfort and pressure sores can use the Tilt-in-Space with the support of a loved one to get in a better position through the combination of tilt and recline.
A transport wheelchair is an excellent option for transporting individuals because limited mobility shouldn't limit their freedom. A transport wheelchair is made to be lightweight and easily foldable to be stored in a vehicle.
When a patient wishes to travel outside their home and immediate surroundings, a transport wheelchair is a reliable choice. The wheelchairs help on trips to the doctor, shopping, family outings and other occasions where there’s walking involved with a caregiver.
Beach wheelchairs allow individuals to enjoy beach access while adapting to their specific medical limitations. There are special tires and seating on a beach wheelchair that move users from hard surfaces like the parking lot onto the beach sand and into the water where a regular wheelchair would be unable to function.
When a sunny weekend approaches, a beach wheelchair is the perfect choice to enjoy a fun day at your local beach. Once at the beach, a patient will be able to trek along the shore, spending quality time with friends and family.
