Types of Wheelchairs You Can Donate

Mobility aids make a huge difference in the life of an individual with limited mobility. It can improve their quality of life and help them partake in activities they may not be able to otherwise. In many developing countries, many disabled children find themselves bed-bound, unable to attend school, church or go out because of the lack of availability of good quality mobility aids. Mentioned below are a few types of wheelchairs you can donate.

Standard Wheelchairs

Most probably the picture that pops into your head when you think wheelchairs is that of a standard wheelchair. It has two small wheels in the front and two large ones at the back as it doubles as a manual wheelchair. They are the kind of wheelchairs you see at hospitals and are created and marketed mostly for commercial use.

Transport Wheelchairs

As the name clearly suggests, transport wheelchairs are used to transport the patient from one place to another. They are more like seats with wheels and footrests. Because the wheels are small, you cannot use a transport chair manually and will require a caregiver to push the chair for you. These chairs also feature additional safety fittings, such as a seat belt or handbrakes that the caregiver has access to.

Bariatric/Heavy Duty Wheelchairs

Most standard wheelchairs come with a maximum weight capacity of 300 to 350lbs. Anyone over that needs to invest in a heavy-duty or bariatric wheelchair. It is made of sturdier material, features a wider seat and is designed to cater to people suffering from obesity. Because they cater to people with slightly heavier frames, heavy-duty wheelchairs weigh quite bit more than average wheelchairs.

Bariatric Wheelchair

Lightweight Wheelchairs

As the name suggests, their low weight is the main selling point for these wheelchairs. They are designed with portability in mind and are super comfortable to carry. They are usually very compact and are easier to push or use manually (self-propel).

Electric Powered Wheelchairs

An electric-powered wheelchair uses a rechargeable battery and a motor that powers the wheels. It features a remote control usually in the form of a joystick that allows the user full control of the vehicle providing them complete independence.
