Be an Informed Wheelchair Buyer

Determine your own unique needs and wants. Be an active participant in purchasing your new mobility. Consider your wheelchair as an extension of your own body, because that is what it is for you; supporting your mobility and complimenting your personality and look.

There are 4 key areas you need to understand:

Environment - home, transportation, work/school, recreational activities, climate you live in, etc

Functional capabilities - disability needs, type of chair, (power, manual, folding, rigid) features, options, adjustability, weight

What do you want it to look like (aesthetics, color, image)

Funding - dialogue with your team that will help to get funding (therapist, dealer, physician, payor source) and negotiate what you need.

Get involved, become knowledgeable, ask questions, sharing what you want and, if necessary, advocate for your rights! Be prepared to know that what you need, what you want and what you can afford may all collide. In this case, you need to work with your team of professionals and help fight the funding battle using their expertise to guide you. Having a knowledgeable, good team of healthcare professionals such as High Tech Mobility assisting you, will be crucial in your receiving equipment that fits you correctly, functions for you, looks great and is funded to your advantage.

Power Chair Checklist

Every power chair has different features and options to choose from, but, as a whole, the following checklist may provide a meaningful guide toward assuring most of your power chair needs are meet.

1. Motor/Speed Package: Many power chairs offer a high speed or high torque motor package - which is right for you?

2. Color: Have you seen color samples and chosen the best for you, your wardrobe, and work environment?

3. Controller: If there are different controller options, are you aware of the differences, and have you chosen the best system for your intended uses?

4. Joystick Mount: If it's your first power chair, do you need right- or left-hand mounting? Do you need a fixed or swing-away mount?

5. Joystick Handle: There're a host of joystick handles other than the standard knob - do you need a T-handle, ball, extended stick, etc.?

6. Battery Charger: If offered, is on-board or off-board more convenient for you?

7. Batteries: If more than one battery size is available - whether due to upgrades or power seating restrictions - are you certain that the selected battery size is appropriate for your needs?

8. Drive wheels: If more than one size is available, have you determined the diameter and width that best matches your driving conditions?

9. Casters: Which size offered works best for you?

10. Tires: Do you prefer flat-free or pneumatic?

11. Leg rests: Of the commonly offered swing-away, drop-in, elevating, or platform leg rests, which best meet your requirements? (Foot plate size and extension tube lengths are often a choice to make, as well).

12. Seating: Seating is among the most vital components of a power chair, and should be verified with your therapist and rehab specialist. However, the three basic non-powered seating systems include sling, pan, and automotive style.

13. Specialty Seating: If you need power seating - elevating, tilt, or recline - confirm the systems appropriateness, and understand how it interfaces with the power chair's's base (seat-to-floor height or battery size may be influenced by power seating).

14. Armrests: Determine which armrest option you wish - height-adjustable, flip-back, single-post removable, etc.

15. Seat Cushion: Don't overlook the importance of a seat cushion, which is commonly ordered at the same time as a power chair.

16. Accessories: From seat belts to cup holders, don't forget the ever-important accessories!

Again, this in an overview of the decisions that need addressing when ordering a power chair - the power chair model you are interested in may have more or less features and options. Let the professionals at High Tech Mobility assist you in making the choice that will be the best for you.
