At present, there are many wheelchairs of all kinds on the market, which can be summarized into the following three categories: hand-push wheelchairs, electric wheelchairs, and wheelchairs.1. Push the wheelchairThe shape is like a chair, with four wheels, armrests on both sides, and footrests on the front. Some stovepipe wheelchairs have larger rear wheels, add a hand push ring, and the brakes also rely on the rear wheels. In addition, you can also walk by yourself. There is another kind of wheelchair that has a smaller rear wheel and has no push circle, so you must rely on others. However, both of these wheelchairs have a larger rear wheel than the front wheel and a smaller front wheel, which is used for steering. There are anti-roll wheels behind the wheelchair. The hand-push wheelchair is relatively light and can be folded away. It is suitable for general situations or people with short-term mobility difficulties. The hand-pulled wheelchair generally needs to be accompanied by family members and is not suitable for long-term sitting.
2. Electric wheelchairThe electric wheelchair is basically the same as the hand-push wheelchair, but it has more batteries than the hand-push wheelchair and is more user-friendly. As long as the user's awareness and control ability are good, using an electric wheelchair is a good choice, so that you can control it yourself. There is no need to trouble others, but special attention should be paid to safety when the electric wheelchair crosses the ditch and hurdle. In addition, electric wheelchairs also require a larger space for activities indoors.3. WheelchairIt is also called electric scooter, which is used by many elderly people. It is roughly divided into three or four wheels and one or two seats. It is driven by an electric motor and has electromagnetic brakes. The speed is generally limited to below 15km/h. If you have a clear response and want to travel a longer distance, then an electric scooter is an ideal choice.
