Foldable steel wheelchair, When someone has suffered from a stroke, friends and family want to know how they can help. The best time to look for aids is when the patient’s condition has finally stabilized and improved. At this time, choosing the right wheelchair for a stroke patient will impact the effectiveness of rehabilitation.

Fordable Steel Wheelchair

However, no “one” wheelchair is suitable for all stroke patients! Everyone has different symptoms, Fordable Steel Wheelchair residual function, and lifestyles after having a stroke.

The patient is able to walk, but not far

For stroke patients at this level, movements such as sitting, standing, and walking are not greatly affected, but the speed and balance coordination are slightly worse. In this case, a lightweight aluminum wheelchair is recommended. The patient can also use a large-wheeled (self-propelled) wheelchair to promote physical activity if they have upper body strength. However, if a patient cannot propel themselves, a wheelchair with small wheels (attendant propelled) is lighter and easier to carry for the caregiver. While the patient is using a crutch or walkers during rehabilitation, make sure to remember the principles of walking “Slow and Steady” and “Safety First”. Steel Wheelchair – NMW1975-51

The patient cannot walk but sits steadily

When a patient is paralyzed, the main goal is to restore their walking ability; therefore, a folding wheelchair that will allow the user to shift easily is required. Such wheelchairs are equipped with removable arm and footrests that can free up space, allowing the user to use their non-paralyzed arm and foot to operate and propel the wheelchair. If a stroke has affected the lower body, then sometimes restoring a patient’s ability to walk is not possible. In this case, it might be time to consider an electric foldable steel wheelchair. An electric wheelchair will allow the user to travel longer distances and have a sense of independence. To operate a wheelchair, the user needs some motor function and good cognitive and visual abilities. Make sure to consult a professional physical therapist or talk to a wheelchair consultant. These are patients with more severe symptoms and less motor function as a result of a stroke. When the user is in a wheelchair and cannot hold their upper body or head steadily. Then we recommend a wheelchair with high-back support. Consider the following:
  • Can the user hold up their head and neck independently? If yes, we recommend a reclining wheelchair.
  • The user cannot sit up straight independently, they might slide out of the chair or lean to one side due to being paralyzed: Then we recommend a ‘Tilt-in-Space’ wheelchair.
  • The user is completely unstable and needs to use the wheelchair long-term: Then we recommend the reclining and ‘Tilt-in-Space” 2-in-1 wheelchair.
