For many disabled people who have grown to accept their condition as part of their lifestyle, having the right mobility aids to assist them getting around with the least assistance from caregivers or their more able bodied family members have become a daily necessity. Society has accepted them as a normal member of the community with little or no privilege that can be misinterpreted as being condescending to their disabilities.
Paraplegics and feeble elderly folks consider wheelchairs and mobility scooters as their second legs just as visually impaired people consider their prescription spectacles as their second set of eyes.
Patients recovering from a debilitating illness or injury that compromises their mobility can opt to use wheelchairs instead of crutches or walkers in the early stages of recovery when they are still too weak to manage.
Temporary situations like this are best addressed renting a wheelchair than buying one even if used. Online merchants abound offering wheelchair rental online. You may also consider checking with friends and relatives who have one stored away after a handicapped member who has outgrown the need. They may even lend it entirely for free.
Among wheelchair users, it is not uncommon to encounter problems that require wheelchairs to be taken out of commission for extended days undergoing repairs. This is prevalent with more complex electric powered wheelchairs where a failed motor or brakes can render them unusable or dangerous to continue using. Unless they have a second wheelchair as back-up, they may have no other option than to rent one.
The internet is full of online merchants offering electric wheelchairs rental options apart from being on sale, both new and used. Deliveries to their homes can be done and they can have their mobility support while waiting to complete the repairs on their own wheelchairs.
With a wheelchair as part of your lifestyle, there could be occasions when you need to look your best. Weddings, anniversaries or gala premier nights may require your attendance in a tuxedo or anything out of your usual denims and t-shirt.
Your overused wheelchair will certainly look out of place with you in a tuxedo. In times like these, you could rent one of those hip looking electric power wheelchairs with ergonomic seats elegantly styled with unobtrusive set of motorized wheels.
