Wheelchairs are equipment designed to assist in the movement of people who have some kind of injury or disease that prevents their movement or that hinders it. For some people it is a technical help that they need all the time to be able to function independently in their daily activities, while for others, it is a tool that they only need for a short time. Whatever the reason, wheelchairs should be user-friendly and tailored to your needs. 

Wheelchairs were invented many years ago, it is believed that the first was created to help King Philip II of Spain to mobilize, around the year 1595. However, the first patent as such was registered in 1869, with that invention many models have emerged, for example electrical, transport, for the interior or to rise, all with a common purpose, to allow the independence of users with mobility problems or reduced mobility. 

Types of Wheelchair a Laboratory May Need

Electric Wheelchair

The electric wheelchair is in principle advisable, for those people who can not propulse themselves. However, they are increasingly chosen for their well-being and comfort, as well as the freedom of movement they offer. These have a motor and a battery that provides energy so that the user or the passenger can carry it without pushing it. They have mechanisms such as: 

  • It climbs curbs: it's a mechanism that allows you to climb small spaces known as sidewalks, and these chairs allow you to climb them.
  • Reclining Backrest. With this mechanism, the user can at his will recline or vascular the chair at the time he wants.

Sport Wheelchair

Just as the conventional tennis player needs specific shoes for different surfaces, or a football player needs tennis to run on the field or on the floor, an athlete with motor disability needs a specific wheelchair for each discipline, these are known as sports chairs and come in different models to meet the user's needs. 

Sports wheelchairs are nothing more than wheelchairs with sporting features and accessories that allow the user to practice a specific sport. These teams are complex in terms of technology and design, in addition to adapting to each discipline, and are customizable to meet the needs of each person. They are generally made of aluminum or titanium and are relatively lightweight. Knowing the different types of sports wheelchairs that exist in the market is vital if you consider practicing any sport. 

Stairs wheelchair

For disabled patients, the choice of wheelchairs that meet their needs and requirements is of great importance, taking into account that they must ensure that all measures are taken correctly, and that they are supervised by the medical specialist.

Taking into account the characteristics of each chair, these are devices that provide support, so that the patient can sit and have some way, mobility on wheels to a person who has difficulty walking or moving. It should be noted that the types and models of chairs have been evolving to best meet the particular needs of each user.
