Many people may think that all wheelchairs look alike and there can’t be that much difference between chairs. Here at Karma Mobility, we know that that isn’t the case at all.
Shopping for lightweight wheelchairs can be like shopping for any consumer product like a car. There’s a huge amount of choice and variety so that you can get exactly what you want from your product.
There are lots of things to consider when shopping for a wheelchair and finding the right fit is of the utmost importance.
The importance of choosing the right wheelchair
When looking for a new lightweight wheelchair, your decision is usually more important than other consumer products. Wheelchairs have huge differences when it comes to how they feel, how they fit your body, how they respond and what we can do in them.
The people who use wheelchairs also have lots of differences in:
- Age, gender and body type;
- Reason for being in a wheelchair;
- What they want to do in their wheelchair;
- Where they will use their wheelchair;
- Personal preference.
Our team at Karma Mobility are experts in providing you with the best fitting wheelchair possible.
When considering lightweight wheelchairs, there are generally two methods of propulsion available. Self-propelled wheelchairs have a larger rear wheel that can be pushed by the user and transit wheelchairs are designed to be manoeuvred by a carer when needed.
Travelling around with your wheelchair
All of our lightweight wheelchairs have foldable frames that make it much easier to travel. The wheelchairs can be easily loaded into cars if you need to travel regularly. If you only need to be in your wheelchair intermittently, their foldability lends itself well to storage.
We also offer a wide range of accessories for your wheelchair to get that perfect fit for you. Many of these accessories increase practicality. The wheelchair bag lends itself well to storing and protecting your wheelchair while it is folded away.
Our aim at Karma Mobility is to provide you with a wheelchair that gives you the confidence to live your life to the fullest, wherever you travel.
