The Benefits of Having a Wheelchair

Some examples of disabilities and illnesses which may require the use of a wheelchair include: Alzheimer’s Disease, Cerebral Palsy, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Muscular Dystrophy, Parkinson’s Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), Scoliosis, Spina Bifida, Spinal Cord Injuries, Traumatic Brain Injury, Diabetes, Amputations, and more. As well as helping a person to move, elderly people may require a wheelchair to reduce the risk of falling over whether they are at home or outdoors.

Types of Wheelchairs

When looking for a wheelchair for sale, NZ wide there are many different types and models to choose from, all with different features.

Transit wheelchairs are designed for pushing a person unable to propel themselves. They are sturdy enough to support users while being lightweight enough to fold up and transport.
