For anyone looking for a¬† steel wheelchair¬† for the first time, the choice can be so confusing. Lots of factors decide which way you need to go but let's take a look this month at temporary users. People in this category can be the elderly and infirm, convalescing or temporarily incapacitated after an accident or operation. For these people the choice should be easy but many still choose the wrong chair, only because they have not been educated by the service provider who hasn't asked the correct questions in order to advise them properly, or, they have gone to one of the large stores who keep wheelchairs as a sideline and know nothing about them. One very important question to ask yourself and this is the first one we ask our clients. Do you do a lot of travelling in vehicles? If the answer is yes, then the best advice is to look for an Steel wheelchair as they are +/- 10 kgs lighter than a normal base model steel chair which weighs 25 kgs. 25kgs is a lot of weight to keep putting in and taking out of the boot or back of the car. I know from firsthand experience of delivering these chairs & believe me, my back takes strain. Many Steel wheelchairs come with quick release wheels which means, at the push of a button the wheels come off so the chair is very easy to stow in the boot and it becomes feather light. Aluminum chairs will be in the region of R4,500 but make sure you get one with quick release wheels and removable footrests as this makes life so much easier. We've had clients come back to us to purchase a lightweight when they realized we were right after all, as they found they were avoiding travelling because the chair was just too heavy but they bought on price, not on need but in the end paid even more. steel wheelchair
