Wheelchairs for elderly people are meant to be easy to use and also very light in weight.
Chairs for elderly people can be either manual or power. Manual wheelchairs for the elderly are usually very lightweight and very easy to store and fold. Transport wheelchairs are ideal for older people that cannot propel on their own.
Features may vary depending on the condition of the elderly person, a chair with removable armrests would help them when they are attempting to transfer.
A chair with companion handles will allow a caregiver or family member to push the elder person so that they don’t have to on their own. If the individual is suffering from a severe medical condition, they may require more advanced features, such as a reclining backrest so that they can be placed in a comfortable reclined feature to promote blood circulation and prevent any other medical condition from developing.
Billing a wheelchair through insurance is usually a lot easier for someone who is a senior. This means that the insurance companies are more flexible towards older individuals requiring advanced features on a wheelchair.
Remember, the more features you need, the more expensive the chair will be.
